Blue Promise: Understanding the Evolution of Pharmaceuticals

Why does it take so long to get drugs approved and why are they so expensive? In this Blue Promise, Dr. Dan McCoy takes a look at the evolution of a pharmaceutical drug.

While pharmaceuticals can save lives, we often hear more about their hefty price tag. To be fair, drugs go through a long process before they reach consumers. It’s important to ask your doctor about low-cost alternatives and its also helpful to understand the lifecycle of your medication. In this Blue Promise, Dr. Dan McCoy takes a look at the evolution of pharmaceuticals with Lisa McCormick, BCBSTX’s Pharmacy Director.
