The high cost of health care is about the prices

The price of cancer drugs in the US is vastly higher than in other nations, according to new research that shines a light on how the cost of treating the life-threatening disease differs considerably depending on where the patient lives.

In the US, the median monthly price of branded cancer drugs, which are still protected by patents, was almost $8,700, compared with about $2,600 in the UK, $2,700 in Australia and $3,200 in China, according to the study, one of the largest of its kind.
