Prescription Drug Rebates, Drug Costs, and Women’s Health New Prescription Drug Proposal Will Help Women and Their Families Rebates paid from pharmaceutical companies to pharmaceutical benefit managers are increasing, driving up costs for patients, and possibly increasing overall drug spending and prices. HealthyWomen’s goal is to provide women information so they can understand how proposals for changing health care or health insurance would benefit women and their families (or not). HealthyWomen has supported or opposed specific proposals to change Medicare as it currently exists because it does have significant implications for women and. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the 6th proposal of his 2020 State of the State agenda a three part plan to lower prescription drug costs for all New Yorkers.

The Governor’s proposal would cap insulin co-payments at $100 per month for insured patients to help address the rising cost of insulin that has resulted in diabetes patients. “New Prescription Drug Proposal Will Help Women and Their Families,” April 16, 2019 “Medicare-for-All and Women’s Health,” April 8, 2019 “HealthyWomen Opposes Proposed Changes to Title IX’s Rules for Sexual Harassment and Assaults Involving Students,” (with.

Seniors with common chronic illnesses are often forced to spend well over 10 percent of their income on prescription drugs. The new Families USA study demonstrates that a widow with diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol, living on an annual income of $12,525 (150 percent of the poverty level) will spend 18.3 percent of her annual income. Among those currently taking prescription drugs, one-fourth of adults (24 percent) and seniors (23 percent) say it is difficult to afford their prescription drugs including about one in ten.

Although men still fall victim to prescription drug overdose more often, the number of women losing their lives to prescription drugs rose 400 percent between 1999 and 2010 (compared to 250 percent for men), according to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

WASHINGTON – Today, the White House announced a proposal for over $1.1 billion in new funding to address the heroin epidemic and prescription opioid abuse. As the heroin epidemic has taken a heavy toll on too many families in communities across Illinois, Congresswoman Bustos has advocated for additional funding for treatment centers and law enforcement agencies to stem this crisis.

When we take a look at the current state of women’s health and maternity care in the US, it is clear that it is even more necessary than ever for a renewed women’s health movement to emerge, and to keep constantly vigilant and skeptical with regard to new drugs that may be prescribed to women or their children.

  • America is losing it’s grip on both the world and it’s own people. It’s clear that these issues indicate the demise of a once vast & proud nation. Godspeed to us all.

  • I asked my doctor about a drug I saw on the tv, he replied “As a man, you don’t have a menstrual cycle, so that drug is not right for you…”

  • I’ve been prescribed oxycontin and never had the desire to get my hands on more. The pain melted away and the sleep was awesome and that scared me a little. I called the hospital surgeon and asked for a milder pain med. I can see how people get hooked on that stuff but addiction isn’t on my agenda, never has been, never will be… by the grace of God. But all that said, I do get it. I hope these people find peace from it and are able to forge a new and better life for themselves and their families. Amen.

  • 14:44 I recall the horrors of trying to walk down a sidewalk in San Francisco while trying to avoid pushy street people, most of them high on drugs. Some would refuse the food I would try to give, and demand money. My roommate was attacked by one of them for not giving money: he spat on her face. And this was when I lived there in 2000-2001. It was bad enough then, must be hell now. Ugh!! ��

  • Usually just watch UK channels. Then I tried watching MSNBC. In only an hour, I recognised something fishy right away. Yeah, too many drug ads.

  • Here is a secret but don’t tell anyone. You don’t have to pay Pharma. You can make it yourself legally. Just boil poppy seeds in water and you have your own pain relief tea!

  • As an Australian I find America weird in so many ways no healthcare for all guns cigarette ads and now this! America you have problems bro maybe ask ur daddy The UK for some help

  • Whenever someone refused these type of drugs for any reason they were labeled not to be served by doctors and were called a problem there is a very wide sweep to lay blame for this and all other troubles letting these evil idiots get by with this

  • I don’t watch TV, but I get tons of prescription drug ads on the Internet. YouTube is generating a lot of them. Many of them make no effort to tell you what they would be good for. One I get frequently is for something called something like “Ozempic” (that may not be quite the right name). I have no idea what it is for; a guy just acts really happy about it and says the name repeatedly. It’s annoying, especially when I don’t know what on earth it is or what I would want it for.

  • 13:00 It’s ironic that this sheriff has the star of David on his chest and on an ornament behind him in his office. Especially considering the fact that many law enforcement officials are Freemasons. The sheriff in this film might be righteous but the mere symbolism is a testament to the hopeless corruption of our entire western and perhaps global establishment. That’s why I seek refuge with Jesus because it is the only place I feel safe anymore. I am repenting of my sins and I submit to you, Jesus.

  • that it’s completely wrong. Yes, people might visit the doctor more frequently, but that comes as a response to stress for falsely believing you are sick. It takes a big mental toll.

  • they should detain the junkies and put them in a giant detox center that seems like the most humane thing to do. what a dereliction of duty! cops cruising by and watching these people shoot up right in front of them?!

  • Want to stop it? Start with BIG PHARMA they should be sued for every death or near death incident.As we know it will never change as with all that profit from the harm of someone or something.

  • Astonishing how pervasive and insidious opioid abuse has become over the past ten years. Opioid abuse makes heroin and cocaine abuse look mild by comparison. Sadly, those who could genuinely benefit from the responsible use of opioids are penalized because of the abusers.

  • not the sacklers are to blame, but the governement. from. one extreme to the other: no help for chronic pain patiemts > opioids for everyone > and even less help for chronic pain patients.
    then this whole ” war on drugs” policy, criminalising not just the dealers, but also the addicts, instead of granting them proper help. turbocapitalism at its best.
    as a german that all seems so ridiculous to me.

  • Drain the swamp of this undue evil this and all other evil brought you by the letter C and the letter N evil has no good place to go

  • The Opioid crisis gets to this stage with so many people dying and Oh now let’s look into it pure shocking. I always wonder how mass quantities got out on the streets with no regulation. What about the other Opioid drugs that need to be brought down. Dr’s get a kick back from sales so they not innocent, they know how dangerous and addictive the drug is and they write the script. The Government is doing a “great job” to protect our society as the law let’s these offenders get away with it Governments don’t care

  • As a Brit, I visited Florida back in 2016 and telly adverts were almost entirely about local auto dealers selling giant people carriers, law firms, or medical insurance/medical negligence claims (vaginal mesh implants being the thing back then) and also adult education college. So whilst not bad, it was centered around these three or four topics, with health and health concerns being upfront. No real variety or other messages. Just health and wealth. I do feel for Americans, smart people being channelled down a path of obsessive health, prescription drugs, and big cars. I’m not saying life is perfect elsewhere, but I felt very trapped by the system of advertising within a day of being there. It seemed very obvious to me that the Powers That Be are quite happy to feed the US public a limited diet of cars, prescription drugs and medical insurances around the clock. It’s no wonder the people of many developed nations are absolutely paranoid and in the doctor’s surgeries every five minutes. In the UK we’re channelled down the same Big Pharma route in practice mostly (though holistic/natural healing is becoming more of a force) but definitely not through the TV.

  • And yet somehow all that heroin was just waiting for people coming off of oxycodone
    By the way, oxycontin is NOT stronger than morphine

  • I used to do drugs and guess what who I blame? ME! I’m sick tired of people blaming others for being a junkie or being a junkies relative or friend. Then these demonstrators who most likely no nothing about drug addiction can just go fuck themselves. If it wasn’t OxyContin it would be heroin. If you’re so fucking stupid that you don’t know that opioids are addictive as fuck then that’s on you and you’re doctor if that doctor didn’t explain it to you. Why isn’t there outrage over alcohol? That’s a billion dollar industry too. And hypocrites who are smoking weed now because it’s legal, well guess what it’s not safe to smoke anything because you get carcinogens that cause cancer. What damn school did these doctors who were misled to think opioids like OxyContin isn’t addictive? Retard school?

  • This is my National Anthem, let us sing: Yah thanks for opiods, you put them in White Hands, Yah bless those opiods that cleanse Whites from our lands!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Shame on the Sackler family for building their fortune on Oxycontin made by Purdue Pharma ( the manufacturer of Oxycontin). Nan Goldin is a beacon shining a light on the greed of the Sackler family against Oxycontin. I want to see this be the biggest Class Action Law Suit in America.

  • I stopped watching when he said it was twice the potency of morphine and the woman claimed she got prescribed oxy like Valium totally unscientific hint it’s 1.5x stronger

  • Those Sacklers should be expelled back to their home of origin in jail there..Get them out of America along with cousins Rockefeller’s,

  • Not everyone gets addicted to opiates. Ppl that take them for chronic pain conditions don’t want to be on this crap. Unfortunately, because of all the addicts, chronic pain sufferers are having a difficult getting their own meds. The addicts I know started off as willful ppl that just wanted to have fun and party, I know many of them. Or they were depressed, but didn’t want to take regular depression meds. A lot of addicts are very self involved. My two step children had good lives, very spoiled, but wanted to have fun all the time. Now they are addicted the life and every drug that goes with it. They had a lot of support and help. Still do but refuse to take it. They need special rehabs, not the ones poor ppl go to. We spent half our retirement money trying to help them. Blame big pharma all you want. It’s still a choice. If I eat 10 bags of chips its my choice, not the company. I know better and so do most ppl.

  • I have a recurrent brain tumor at my brainstem(not cancerous, but would have killed me), and have had surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, all which have been successful in treating my cancer, thank god. My personal experience with cancer has made me want to give back to the community that has allowed me to stay alive for almost 10 years following my initial diagnosis. How would you, or anyone recommend that I go about getting involved in the research, and development world of this field of biology?

  • If this happens in India, it would be a disaster, though medicines are regulated, almost every medicine is available over the counter, without any prescription. Still, most people may know the simple go to medicines like Ibuprofen and Paracetamol.. they are mostly ignorant of the specific medicines.. Ignorance here is a bliss..

  • It started with the CIA in Vietnam.
    Saigon there was a HEROIN factory supplying to the world.
    The French operations in Indo china, was taken over by the CIA
    Moved to Ban Han Thai in Northern Thailand.
    90% of black soldiers came back from Vietnam addicted.
    Opium > Morphine > Heroin > Opioids its all the same.
    Monsanto used to put it in Coca Cola, that act on opioid receptors in the brain
    Then they diversified into Agent Orange > Glyphosate
    Herbicide used on all our crops and vegetables in the USA (and world)
    Deliberate, premeditated Killing of innocent victims.
    The only thing you can do is pray.
    Jesus is far above all principalities and powers.

  • Funny 20 medical professionals in Tennessee were just charged with illegally prescribing narcotics. Our government is corrupt as are the pharmaceutical companies. Wake up people we are brainwashed to look at these people as our leaders and professionals, truly they are dogs.

  • It’s just another example of the sick society in the US. Wapons and drugs for everyone! Extremely bad health (fattest people on the planet), bad health care and food, a society full of crime and racism, slums, Donald Trump as the president…. Dear, this country has serious problems.

  • 00:26
    “But there’s a case to be made for them too.”

    no there isn’t. If 99% of countries have made something illegal then there’s probably no case for it.

  • Is depression and sadness a physical pain?
    Why are you given painkillers for melancholy?
    What sort of doctors have you got in the US?
    Excuse my naivety.
    Are these addicts victims or wilful pleasure seekers?
    Plus SJW enablers.
    SMH.

  • Dang… I have a pre-existing house fire and need access to insurance to get it covered. Suck it up tax payers… YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY IS MY GODDAMN BIRTHRIGHT!

  • the Sackler Family should not only be put in a nasty jail for assisted murder in thosuands of cases. tehy should also be stripped of all their BILLIONs and those billions need to be put in REHAB centers and compenstation payments to teh ORPHANS they ahve created.. This world is run by EVIL..

  • They are the biggest drug dealers on the planet. They have lied about the safety of their product caused misery to thousands but because they are rich and powerful nothing will happen too them. One law for the rich another for the poor. Welcome to the world where the power is in the hands of the people rich enough to buy it.

  • Just in from the English version of Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Je suis Charlie.

    QUOTE

    “What’s next: Let’s meet for coffee at the Harvard H-r Museum? Rarely since 1945 have we in the west seen so many corpses thrown on a pile by the deliberate and knowing machinations of fellow human beings abundantly documented. 70,000 people die every year of overdosing. I was trying to imagine what a pile of 70,000 corpses would look like. This is very difficult to do. I began with ten corpses in a line and then making a square of 100. Then I stretch to 100 in line and therefore 10,000 in a square. If one reserves six feet of length for each corpse one side of the square would be two football fields long. I think I got the math right. That would make seventy such squares, right? Seven by ten squares. If this crisis persists, the random killing is on track to reach six million victims (only stating numbers). Most of these corpses were probably cremated in crematoria all over the US. This is not efficient. The effort would better be centralized. It has been tried before. Is this mass murder? It is not quite genocide. I’m really not sure. I heard the Sackler family quite proactively pushed the deadline poison. For what? Well, for the money. Is it not always about the money? Their names are on buildings at Harvard and all over the world. Is this not whitewashing evil intent? The Sacklers never worried. Millions to the British museum, millions to the Louvre in Paris. The coverup is perfect. Tufts removed the Sackler name from its buildings. The reason should not only be because of what the name is associated with but also (and above all) because the very use and visibility of the name is an indispensable cog in the wheel of the crime, even without deliberate intent. Institutions will vigorously argue that money has no name. But that misses the whole point. The evildoers are protected by having their names on famous buildings. What’s next? Since the MeToo movement, nothing surprises anymore these days.”

    Wow, did you read this? I hope that Charlie does not get shot up again in Paris. They are still licking their wounds from the first time. Or do you think that they went too far so that they deserve to be shot up again?

  • Junkies keep doing this. Over and over again. It is a huge waste of resources. Junkies should have the cost of narcan taken out of there social security checks.

  • Also the dumbasses that decide to take drugs need to point a finger at themselves! If you’re obese from McDonald’s it’s more than McDonald’s fault! Take responsibility for yourself DAMN!

  • In the philippines we dont reccomend drugs, but we only have ads for vitamin c and skin or hair products (not actually sure if its a drug or not)

  • I saw we arrest them, force feed them the drugs they pushed then make them cold turkey, then do it over and over again, justice huh?

  • Yes blame the Sacklers and the big corporations. Everyone but yourself! Our nation has a spiritual problem manifesting as a drug problem.

  • I want to believe at the clip at 2:00 was the best one you were able to get. I’m imagining Joss Fong laughing like a hyena every time she said those words, and that take was the one where she laughed the least

  • Those people like to get HIGH and are making it hard for people who really do need oxcycontin…seizures,bullets lodged,M.S.,Spinal surgery,car crash etc…
    Whn Oxcyis changed to something else and DRUGGIES abuse again then whats the excuse.
    Drug companies need to gather people like myself closely monitored on the medicine to then devise a plan.BC SO MANY USE OUR MEDS AS MEDS NOT DOPE.

  • As soon as the Sackler family will become actually endangered by all those law suits, you will see that there will be an act created by the government which will protect them one way or the other.

  • At the end of this video at the fund raiser, where they serving alcohol? Sure looks like it. Now care to do a video on alcoholism.

  • “They made the shift to allow patients to make their own decisions instead of listening to doctors.” Now people think they are able to self prescribe themselves because of some anti-vaxx blog they saw on facebook.

  • It used to be that there was tons of ads for drugs that cured everything from smallpox to cancer, and even foods would be marketed as cures and such sometimes, but eventually the US made it so that you have to prove it, and I think a bunch of that drug ad culture stuck around with us… As an example Coca Cola was originally more of a medicine than a beverage because of all the drugs put in it including but not limited to cocaine, morphine, etc.

  • As a American this is very true. About every third ad is a drug ad,and once you’ve seen them what fells like a billion times people just mute the tv when the ads are playing (at least my family dose) because they get so annoying.

  • The pros listed in this video aren’t actually pros. If more people get prescriptions if they bring up the drug themselves that doesn’t mean drug ads are good. It means doctors do not take mental health seriously., and maybe there should be a standard practice of referring patients to psychiatrical evaluations. If ads get people to go to the doctor more, that doesn’t mean the ads are good it means healthcare needs to be more accessible to the public so they don’t require a capitalist ad to bring them into a doctors office.

    There are no pros to these ads. I do not understand how The USA can continuously put a capitalist bandaid over every problem instead of actually fixing them.

  • Wait, in America do you have to pay for your HPV vaccines? I’m a teenager and I got mine free at school the other day. All I needed to do was give my name and stuff and it was done, no fuss. I love our NHS

  • The “good” part is only good in the American healthcare system, where a medical checkup is not normal and you won’t go to a doctor unless you’re death sick. In a normal country, you go to the doctor for a checkup where you describe how you feel and if anything comes out the doctor will instruct you on what to do, you don’t have to listen to commercials to fix yourself.

  • drug corp family seems not much different to escoba of drug cartel family who profit by making the public in addiction. will the swat team storm their home?

  • …and the Kennedy’s got rich from importing liquor after prohibition. That douchebag Kennedy in this vid is a hypocrite. Alcohol has done as much if not more damage than any opiate.

  • I have an opioid problem and i still don’t have this level of self pity and victim complex lmfao. You took the pills once, felt the high, and if you still couldn’t tell how addictive that high could be then you may just have a double digit iQ. If you didn’t stop taking them immediately after trying them or after whatever injury you had to get them, then it’s your fault.

  • What is the best way to last longer in bed? I read lots of superb opinions on the net about how exactly Erectodom Secrets will help you achieve total control over your erectile dysfunction. Has anybody tried this popular erectile dysfunction treatment?

  • I struggle to think that these ads are in any way effective when half their runtime is spent listing all the horrible, horrible side effects, immediately followed by saying there are even more.

  • Pharmaceutical companies have too much power in the US. The Government needs to take a stand. How can they blatantly sell legal heroin to people?

  • How could Vioxx actually get on the market? In Germany, The companies have to prove that the new medicine works better and has less or not that dangerous risks.

  • This is very weird. When I say this people get mad at me and say I’m not a doctor and I don’t know want I’m talking about. But when VOX say the Samething it comes out to be a very informative video… Nice. This is 1 of the reasons why I like to stay in my room. SMH

  • Found it really weird when last in the US that they had drug commercials, made me feel kinda uncomfortable. In australia it isn’t allowed

  • I take butthurttol twice a day when I go on the Internet. It’s very a very addictive medication. It’s a ret4rd receptor agonist. I should ask my doctor for a rehab.

  • Pharmaceutical company’s don’t care about patents they care about money why do you think an Epipen a life saving drug that if you can’t afford it and if you have a sever alergic reaction your on the ground gasping for air and you just have to hope someone’s there with you to get you to a hospital or hope you don’t pass out before you dial 911 this happened to my girlfriend and thank god I was there to take her to the hospital otherwise she’d be dead now you can call viox a worst case scenario but this happens more often than you think and people just don’t talk about it or are silenced

  • I have a problem with people blaming this family or Purdue. Yes most heroin users got addicted from Opioid pain pills but did all of those people also have chronic pain problems and that’s the reason they started using pills? I don’t think so. It’s their fault for using painkillers if they didn’t have pain. I don’t blame Purdue for marketing OxyContin very poorly saying that most people who try it don’t get addicted because in the end it is not Purdue’s fault that people went to doctors complaining of pain they didn’t have and were prescribed OxyContin and later became addicted to heroin/fentanyl. The courts will see it my way too.

  • Yep another way they are killing whites and they are asleep and getting hooked and the gov. Allowed it. But hell they are after whites

  • Do not blame others for your mistakes. You abused Oxycontin, you are to blame. You took it voluntarily to feel the grandeur of your own delusion. Each of you is responsible for your own action.

  • Well, thank capitalism— I mean god, that we have advertisements to save us. I cannot possibly think of what could do a better job at educating and protecting citizens, regarding their health care.

  • I remember that change happening in 1997. As a kid, I wasn’t aware of the reason behind it, I just remembered all of the sudden prescription drug commercials started going on and on with so many side effects, and it was really annoying (and it still is, of course).

  • There are many drug ads in Austria as well, where the reason to buy it is expressed, but the risks aren’t. However, I preclaim that austrian television is less congested with drug ads than amarican tv channels. Accordingly i guess the consumer conduct is still the biggest issue, because you can easily look up the risks of a drug in the internet, beside I don’t know how transparent the communication is for brand new drugs in America. Fortunately in Austria we have pretty strict quality standards for prescripted drugs.

  • Thw Sacklers should be charged with capital murder and all their assets seized and used for drug treatment centers across America. Time for the people to take their country back, and put crony capitalists where they belong.

  • I did not know such a thing until I saw it here in the US…nothing good comes from this general public does not have the underlying medical knowledge to make any informed decision from a commercial its mindboggling that this happens…capitalism has eaten & hollowed out everything…seems like today only reason people exist is for money to b made off of them…sad state of affairs

  • Most thinks Merica won WW2, but in fact as I said for years, the world lost, Merica lost. Hitler was just a puppet for the medical companies to fool the sheeps.

  • Does this by any chance any connection to the bathroom cabinet full of drugs in every single Hollywood movie (thousands) I’ve seen my whole life?

  • 50,000 die per year from opioids
    500,000 die per year from cigarettes

    If you pay the right people, your drug dealing isn’t an epidemic.

  • this is extremely bad for patients. some of these drugs are not the patient is in appropriate for the condition the patient is in. because of some of th.e claims of these ads, patients pressure their doctor to prescribe it. if their dr don’t they will shop for a dr that does. no wonder people lost trust in fda. on other hand, when something is medically necessary (eg vaccine), ppl just think it is big pharma trying to flog their product

  • Even if they came out from the start and were honest about addiction possibilities let’s not pretend we would be in a different situation here. It’s the way of the times to blame everyone but the user for this epidemic. I am compassionate to the user but they are the ones who took it to the next level putting that needle in their arm
