cheaper if you pay cash? >> they have a gag clause that forbid them from talking to consumers. >> a gag clause like the one in this contract saying that pharmacists can get kicked out of an insurance network if they talk to the media or sponsors or members -- without prior consent. >> giving this information out, i'm risking losing contracts. >> which explains why pharmacists are frightened to speak out about insurance overcharges. >> what would happen if you are kicked out of the network? >> it would be over. >> if you make too much noise about this -- >> your contract could be in jeopardy. that is not right. >> that if consumers are paying more for prescriptions, who is getting the extra money? some pharmacist say it is the insurance companies. the business is called a clawback. the insurance company may chars
charge the patient $20. but they clawback $60. so the pharmacy ends up with a net $4. the clawback tactic happens -- in association with united health. the e-mail did not explain why some co-pays cost the customers more than just paying cash. industry experts say paying cash may not always help because it generally does not count toward the deductible. this is unsettling. more kids are not being restrained properly in vehicles. a new study from the national highway traffic administration says the percentage of 4-year- old come up to seven -year-olds
