It seems that wherever there is Medical Insurance, the cost goes up.
OK, so I'm in the UK where some of your taxes are supposed to pay for healthcare. Go to a private hospital here for anything, and the first question is "Who will pay?". As soon as you say that you yourself will pay - watch the price come down because the Med Insurance firms can be slow payers.
Copaxone in the UK costs our NHS under £7000 per year (say just over $US 10,000, and this is using a 28-day supply pack).
I have seen that the cost of Copaxone in the US is something like $4500 for a 30-day supply over the counter in (say) Walgreens.
In Canada, the cost is about $1000-$1200 for the 28-day supply, with delivery to several countries.
We have an interesting supply model here in the UK in that the hospitals prescribe, and the prescription goes to a distribution pharmacy who then deliver. This does garantee that the pack has been kept refridgerated.
In practical terms, all the time I am on Copaxone, I cannot afford to move to another country. Most of my heart meds are low cost, but Copaxone?
