Brand Prices vs. Generics Over Time

It’s amazing to look at the increasing gap over time between the price of a brand drug and the price of a generic drug.  There are a few things going on:

  • More specialty drugs
  • Less blockbuster drugs and therefore more research costs per new brand drug
  • More generic competition

But, regardless of the logic behind it, it is dramatic.
