  • Gilead to price Sovaldi at $900 in India [View news story]

    Many drug companies use a tiered pricing strategy based the number of people infected and their ability to pay. GILD should be applauded for their humanitarian approach.

  • Has Gilead Priced Sovaldi Too High? [View article]
    I guess Gilead didn't build Sovaldi. Liz & Our President would agree with you.

  • Tax inversion law can be passed without congressional approval [View news story]
    Congress is dodging it's responsibility to modernize the tax code and keep US businesses competitive. Government is already too expensive and terribly inefficient. It's logical to conclude that their next step will be confiscation of business and personal income by "Imperial Action."

  • Gilead ramps up guidance as Sovaldi sales zoom upward [View news story]
    Good company posts excellent results with increased guidance and the stock goes down? Some analysts had the chutzpah to call Sovaldi a "controversial drug." If these results are "inline with expectations" I believe the real controversy is the analysts and self-serving politicians.

    "More of us are going to get more healthcare for less money" is a pipe dream. You need to read no further.

    "Systematic exploitation" is another way of saying "you have fulfilled all requirements of the Law but we want more of your money."

  • Gilead lower on Sovaldi scripts data, pricing worries [View news story]
    The "poor publicity" is being built by self- serving politicians, PBM's, and insurance lobbies. Where is the good publicity for making a "cure" available to less fortunate countries at significant discounts? Where is the World Healthcare Organization thanks?

  • Gilead lower on Sovaldi scripts data, pricing worries [View news story]
    Bret, the tiered-pricing model used by many firms has become questionable given the dramatic change to healthcare delivery in the US. America is being offered lower quality healthcare and generic drugs to "bend" the cost curve. IMHO our government is no longer interested in developing cures like Sovaldi. Many officials believe that "sometime we just need to give them a pain pill." As an unintended, or intended, consequence it will become very difficult to continue to offer deep discounts internationally.

  • U.S. insurers get indigestion from high drug prices [View news story]
    One would be wise to consider that PBM and insurance trade groups are primarily interested in making a profit. They generate income by reducing the cost of drugs to companies that contract with them for that purpose.

  • Gilead Science - Sovaldi's Pricing In A New Perspective [View article]
    I expect the price convergence to occur when competitive products come to market. Congress feigned concern over the pricing of Sovaldi and I agree with your assessment of their tiered-pricing model. I applaud Gilead's ideal of making medication available to less fortunate economies like Eqypt. Gilead provides a new drug with life changing results while Congress sends them $2B annually in deadly weapons.
