A study in the journal Health Affairs found that high prices are being paid by some patients for specialty drugs despite the availability of cheaper options. Researchers said specialty drugs could account for half of overall pharmacy costs, or $235 billion, by 2018. Contributing factors to specialty drugs' costs include supply and demand issues and a lack of generic alternatives. PBS (10/20)
