What's your experience with rising costs for healthcare and medicine?

The number and price of new treatments for cancer and other genetic diseases have skyrocketed over the last few years, straining health systems and insurers everywhere, including in Switzerland.

Some health insurers are refusing to reimburse medicine because it's so expensive, others are stuck in long negotiations, delaying access to treatment for patients. Some parents are borrowing money from family members or launching crowdfunding campaigns to pay for a life-saving drug for their children.

How has this impacted you? What do you think should be done to make medicine more accessible? What should pharmaceutical companies do?
