Misconceptions are common in the healthcare field and the presence of misconceptions about pharmaceutical costs are not lost among them. Pharmaceutical costs can range annually and often fluctuate for the average household. Cost of pharmaceuticals can depend on insurance, availability of the drug, supply and demand, the company that owns the drug along with many other factors. The research will focus on clearly defining the misperceptions about pharmaceutical prices and ways to eliminate massive upselling on drugs. The purpose is to determine ways to make drugs more affordable while ensuring access to everyone who needs them. The impact will most likely be noticed in the number of people adhering to their medications and the improvement of comorbid conditions.
