The amount of people without health insurance continues to grow because of the high cost of insurance and the rising rate of unemployment. Moves by companies that make a bad situation worse make it more difficult for people to pay medical bills after suffering from personal injury.
CVS Caremark Corporation is apparently steering pharmacy-benefits patients to its own drugstores by raising co-payments for some who fill their prescriptions at other pharmacies. This makes getting drugs to treat illness and personal injury more difficult.
Our firm’s San Diego personal injury attorneys believe that all people should be able to have access to treatments and drugs needed to help themselves recover from illness and personal injury. High levels of pain and suffering can occur as a result of personal injury, and pain medication helps make patients more comfortable as their injuries heal.
CVS Caremark Corporation sent letters in February warning patients that their co-payments would rise to 50% of the cost of their drugs from 25% unless they switched to a CVS pharmacy.
This maneuver eliminates competition which naturally makes prices lower and more affordable for all people. Lower costs for drugs helps people pay for medical treatments and medical bills when they suffer from personal injury.
Our personal injury attorneys in San Diego believe that the treatment for your injuries should not lead to further damage. A healthcare monopoly like the one CVS has created makes treatment for personal injury more expensive and less accessible to everyone.
