Concern grows over cost of drugs under new healthcare law
Among the most troubling questions facing consumers as they shop for insurance under the Obama administration's new health care law is whether the plans will cover the drugs they take — and how much they will have to pay for them.

States running the marketplaces where the plans will be offered have not released details about which drugs will be covered.
