You brought up some very interesting points regarding prescribing medications and the socioeconomic status of the people you are prescribing them for. I can personally understand this because I have had many issues with this same problem with my medical conditions. At one point I had a medication prescribed for me that cost over $600 a month and my insurance would not cover it even after the medical review that we escalated to. There are so many instances where physicians and practitioners prescribe medications or give a few weeks of samples and do not realize how much these medications are going to cost the patient even with insurance. There are a lot of programs that have discounts, pharmacies that offer certain medications for free or at a very low price but most practitioners do not make that a priority. Save money on your medication (2017) has nine strategies for helping with the cost of medications.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
