Anne - you are correct - essentially free to the user - taking the Irish example much higher tax rates and unless you qualify for free medical care you pay 50-60 euro to see your GP, pay for your meds and add in at least 2k for private medical insurance....removing the waste / unnecessary Rxs would reduce the cost to us all (and then hopefully we would get a tax rebate :) )
