I have a great example of how our healthcare costs have gone completely out of control. I recently needed help to cure a bad cold sore on my upper lip. My dermatologist recommended Zovirax, for which I paid $25. To my horror, I found out that was just a co-pay. AvMed Medicare paid an additional $673.01. For a tube of ointment! This is insane. Do we have to continue being at the mercy of the drug companies?
