I was just wondering how everyone manages to pay for prescription drug costs in the UK. In Canada the drugs are very expensive but most people either have drug plans that cover most or all of the drug costs through their employers insurance or government drug plans. I do happen to know a couple of people who are very low income but not considered low enough for government plans and don't have a work one, I know that this family sometimes goes without for the sake of the drugs. I am very fortunate that my husbands company pays for all of our children's medications, ambulance services and hospital stays. With 2 children with asthma and also my husband has it too, we would not be able to afford the medication without insurance.
