Concerning your editorial “A Value That Isn’t Hovering: Rx Medication” (July 15): Prescription-drug costs are literally falling in the event you strip out the huge and rising rebates that pharmaceutical firms should pay to entry well being insurers’ formularies in addition to different producer reductions. For one of the best indication of remedy worth deflation, try the low prices on the new Value Plus Drug Firm, which obviates inflationary drug-supply-chain middlemen equivalent to pharmacy-benefit managers.
