Re: [IPu] Lantus

Hi Kathy,
The Lantus price I quote is the NZ price obtained by Pharmac
for ists subsided script price.
There is a history of AUS paying more for drugs than NZ (who
knows why) ?  Maybe the drug companies "factor in" the higher price
of scripts here ??
That's what I'm wondering about ..
(Yes, the info was provided by a New Zealander).
