Rising cost for 60 pills of hydroxychloroquine sulfate?

I requested 60 pills from Humana. My pharmacy said it would cost me $90... The last time it cost me $18. Why? ## Pharmaceutical prices change, just like the prices on any other product. It's really a matter of supply and demand, there have been changes in the price of many pharmaceuticals, recently. My mother-in-law has to use 2 inhalers regularly, to prevent asthma and breathing issues, one of them has stayed the same price, while the other has gone up from $45 to over $200. The FDA allows a good bit of pricing leeway, while some companies try to keep their prices down, not all of them do. It is a sad state of affairs, which I fear may only get worse over the next few years. I wish I had some way to help you, but unfortunately, I don't. Have you tried asking your doctor if they...
