Decent Essays
$300,000 a year is too much money to pay for a medication because some people don’t have enough money to afford $300,000 of medication. A drug called Kalydeco helps people who suffer from cystic fibrosis, a lung disease by attacking symptoms such as pain in the abdomen. According to “The $300,000 drug” it states, “It’s more than $300,000 a year. Because patients will likely be taking the drug for the rest of their lives, it could cost millions of dollars to keep one patient on Kalydeco.” This reveals that the disease can cost millions because those affected by the disease will most likely be using it their whole life. Not everyone is fortunate enough to afford not only Kalydeco as well as basic necessities like food and clothes. There are also people who have more than one disease and need medication for that disease too.
