Martin Shkreli was a businessman in the pharmaceutical industry who became famous several years ago when his company increased some drug prices by a huge factor.
I recently watched this video of him in court; to my surprise, I saw multiple people defending Shkreli in the comments. Many claimed that individuals almost never had to pay the large prices for the medication; it was the insurance companies. If a person without insurance contacted Shkreli, then he would give them the medication for free.
I don't buy this, but I was wondering if there was any truth to it.
