Always question the headlines. They are often wrong. Here's a recent one from AOL News:
"Mom of 2 dies of the flu after deciding medication was too expensive."
AOL News, 2/20/18
The message is clear. Had Heather Holland been able to afford the $116 copay for a box of Tamiflu, the flu that killed her would now be a thing of the past and she would probably be back to work. There is at least some implicit blame of the pharmaceutical industry as well. Just an ordinary story.
