Be interesting to know if the price measured includes copayments? This alone sets people apart .
nz could value our prescription meds better which could also be fairer to the pharmacist whose advice has zero value 

we could move to an individual high use cap rather than family which would be easier to police 

Does it account for confidential rebates paid back to Pharmac? That policy is criminal in my opinion....
