I don't know about others here, but the financial point of view for me is what it's all about. Without health insurance, and being unemployed, (does that spell Loser?), decisions about my meds are mostly narrowed down to what I can afford.

For example, I recently got off Effexor, because it's so expensive, but not before I had cut the dose in half to make the script last twice as long. Tried generic nortrip and was sick as a dog from it, so let that go--but it was very affordable.

So, any institute that is looking at financial concerns is tops in my book.
