okay people, stop interpreting and start reading. Below you'll find the background, holding and the eleven (11) headnotes from the SC's ruling which are now settled law. The ruling covers different areas of law which are denoted by the headnote title. This is straight from Westlaw and is worth about $95 of my time, lol.
Ah Tru, you have a sense of humor!
Without going into the complexities, just consider this: Between the drug manufacturers, the FDA, your doc and your insurance company, if you are damaged, what will you do?
Regular folk should consider this:
The next time you go see your doctor and need a prescription, if you are given a paper script, vs. having your script sent directly to your pharmacy, take a good look at it.
Notice the dispense as written box. We’ve all seen this.
Now consider your insurance company. Ins companies more often than not, require generics over brand. Cost. Plain and simple. Generics are cheaper.
Your doc would have to prove that you need brand over generic in order for your ins com to pony up the dough. How many docs do you know who'd be willing to take the time to do that? I know maybe one. Not too many. Remember, they have ins com contracts as well.
Your ins company will say, if you want brand, you can have it, but you will have to foot the bill yourself.
If you cannot afford to pay for brand, and your only option is generic, what happens if you’re damaged in some way? How will you be made whole? The answer, we now know, thanks to last July's ruling, is too bad. Remember this the next time you, your child, mom, dad, sibling, friend, cousin, neighbor, etc., needs a prescription filled.
I am waiting for the ins suits to come round the mountain eventually.
