When the Republicans talk about “Affordable Heathcare,” one of the options they tout is “Repeal and Replace.” Given their past history, a Republican “Replace” option concerns me more than anything else. Republicans have always prohibited Medicare — the single largest buyer — from attempting to negotiate drug prices, consistent with the pharmaceutical companies’ philosophy that completely unrestrained prices and profits are necessary to fund the risk-taking of research and development. Medicare is required by Congress to accept the pharmaceutical companies’ prices without comparison or negotiation, add 6 percent to it, and pay it. As a perpetual gift to the pharmaceutical companies, when Part D of Medicare was passed in 2003, Congress prohibited Medicare from negotiating altogether. There were some reciprocal gifts from the pharmaceutical companies to the cooperating Congressmen, as might be expected.
I read the recent letter to the editor entitled “Fighting ACA a bad proposition for Republicans” (Tribune, Oct. 25, evtnow.com/607). While I do not agree with the partisan nature of that letter, it highlighted that there are some good things in the ACA that should not be thrown away. Some aspects in particular will positively affect cancer survivors. For example, the protection of patients with pre-existing conditions, as well as the elimination of annual and lifetime limits will provide patients with access to the care they need as well as reduce the number of medical bankruptcies. Too often, patients are faced with daunting financial challenges on top of those related to their treatment and care. However, one issue that is not addressed in ACA is the unequal treatment of oral versus infusion cancer drugs by insurers. There is an urgent need for additional legislation to resolve this problem.

Attention fellow Mesonians — a mental health care facility may soon be coming to your neighborhood. Now that the town — no — ‘citizens’ of Gilbert have successfully beaten back the attempts of Springstone health provider to locate there; where do you think they might be looking to go next? Hmmm!
