CVS Pharmacy is hurting millions of cancer patients by refusing to sell dozens of cancer treatment drugs, like leukemia drug Tasigna, prostate cancer drug Xtandi and chemotherapy treatment drug Neupogen, starting in 2017. CVS claims these drugs cost too much. Go ahead and tell that to my insurance provider and Medicare but don’t stop selling these drugs to me and millions of cancer patients.
CVS is putting profit above the care of cancer patients.
If CVS can make money by selling cheap cosmetics and imported cookies, then CVS can make money off of lifesaving drugs.
CVS says there are other drugs that work just as well for most patients. But “most” is not “all patients.” That’s why doctors prescribe different drugs to different patients.
CVS Pharmacy is currently the largest pharmacy chain in the United States. For millions of American’s, CVS is the only pharmacy for miles around. By hurting millions of cancer patients, CVS has become a face of evil. Now, it’s up to us to make phone calls, write letters or send emails to change the course of this wrongheaded move.
Tell CVS’ Medical Director to sell all FDA approved cancer drugs, not just the ones that give CVS the most profit:
