$11 Prescriptions: What U.S. Health Care Can Learn From Germany

Germany has a private health care system like the U.S., but even the sickest patients rarely pay more than $11 for a prescription. How? Noam Levey and Leigh Purvis join Meghna Chakrabarti.
The German model with an independent panel that examines and compares drugs is an excellent model that should be implemented not only in Germany but also in other countries. It’s quite surprising that Medicare/Medicaid are not implanting such a method. German tax payers should be appreciative of their medical sector that value their taxes and their patients for which it applies such measures.
