I can has socialized medicine?

Picked up this month's prescription refills today. Walgreens' labels show copay and how much you saved because of insurance. So I plugged it all into a spreadsheet.

Here's what I get from it:
6 scrips. My total copay is $103.08. The total price Walgreens is charging is $579.20. Total of $18.94 per day, and I'm paying $3.35 per day.

Lipitor is $2.74 per 10mg tablet. I take three per day.
Humulin insulin - that's Eli Lilly - is $39.99 per 10cc vial. When I moved to Seattle it was $21 per.
