Texas woman dies because $116 co-pay for flu medication was too expensive

Heather Holland, 38, a second-grade teacher in Texas, came home early from work last month feeling mildly sick with flu symptoms and fatigued. Over the next few days, she decided not to pay a $116 copayment for medication, and within a week she had died.

Her husband, Frank Holland, said she could have afforded the medication, but she refused to buy it because it was so expensive. He bought the medication when her health deteriorated. “I have to be strong for the kids but it’s still surreal, it hasn’t all set in,” her husband, Frank Holland, told the Weatherford Democrat.
