Drug price disparity

More absurdity - this time on drug prices.
What other thing can you buy with such disparity of prices? I see a 34 - 1 ratio of high to low prices at the same store!

I take 20mg of Simvastatin (a cholesterol drug) every day.

I paid .20 a pill at my HMO
An Internet search reveals

.11 at Costco
.54 at Planetdrugsdirect.com
.61 APEX pharmacy (1.22 if you only get 30)
1.68 at ByLowDrugs (Australia and a few others)

For Zocor, the non-generic version:
$2.24 CanadaDrugs.com
$3.73 CanAmerica
$5.38 at Costco
.58 at NorthWest Pharmacy

I split a 20mg tablet of Simvastatin for my daily dose and your entry made me look up what I'm paying.

.12 Postal Prescription Service

So thanks for making me feel good about the cost of my drugs!
