About 70% of Americans spend money on prescription drugs because they suffer from one illness or another. Depending on the kind of illness, prescription drugs are inevitable, and what’s worse is that most people can’t do without these drugs. The problem is, the cost of prescription drugs is very high, and many people can’t afford it, and they eventually fall into bankruptcy. Some Americans spend about 75% of their earnings on prescription drugs, and sometimes even their insurance company can’t cover the entire cost. This issue of bankruptcy is eating deep into society, and the most affected are the retirees, low-income earners, and middle-class citizens.
