What I Know Now
There is a segment on ESPN Monday Night Football Countdown where the talking heads explain “What I Know Now.” Presumably after watching Sunday’s match-ups, they are wiser on Monday and can better predict the future.
After twenty years and 250,000 claims reviewed, I am in a good position to tell you what I know now, specifically as it relates to Big Pharma, who:
- Spends almost $100 million annually in physician speaking/consulting fees;
- Pays for delay, to ensure generics hit the marketplace at the last possible moment;
- “Hops” products, making small, insignificant manufacturing changes in order to extend patent life;
- Spends more on advertising/lobbying/marketing than on research and development.
What I know now (and for the last twenty years), is that Big Pharma looks out for themselves now and forever.
Who is looking out for you?
Call us. We know better.
