Default The Cost of Insulin

Heard an interesting show on CBC Radio last night called "White Coat, Black Art" on the price of insulin and how it's starting to get out of control - particularly in the U.S.

This paragraph got my attention:

"There are some startling differences in price between the U.S. and Canada. According to one report, the retail price of a vial of Humalog in the U.S. is $300. In Canada, the same vial costs $32. According to media reports, a growing number of Americans cross the border into Canada to get their insulin. The FDA permits cross-border dispensing of up to a three-month supply, provided it's for personal use.

Here's the link to the article for anyone who may be interested:
