Case in point, I just checked my own health plan's website, and if I wanted to go on Truvada, it would cost me $1762.61 for a 90-day supply.
Rounding to make the math simple... $600 a month is a car payment, for a fairly expensive car. In some places, that could be an entire rent check or even mortgage payment. That's overtly extortionate for a life-saving preventative treatment. And I, at least, would have *some* coverage for it. According to drugs.com, retail pricing runs about $1500 per 30-days. That rises up to a C. Montgomery Burns level of inhumanity.
Want to keep your luxury car, then spend $5 on a pack of condoms instead.
