Exposing the rising cost of prescription drug prices

Side Effects special. 9NEWS. Dec. 18, 2016

9Wants to Know spent months compiling a list of 100 drugs, both brand name and generic prescriptions, that since 2012 have seen price increases between 70 percent and 12,000 percent.  This result of the investigation includes this one hour special program. Side Effects is a series of stories on how these price spikes are impacting the most vulnerable in our communities.

In-depth articles and interactive databases can be found at 9news.com/sideeffects. There you can look up your prescriptions medications, your doctors, your lawmakers—to find out which drugs are increasing in price the most and which doctors or politicians are doing their part to ignore the problem by taking the most money from pharmaceutical companies.

You can also share your stories with 9Wants to Know by emailing showusyourbills@9news.com.
