    Gilead

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilead_Sciences#Sovaldi_and_Harvoni

On July 11, 2014, the United States Senate Committee on Finance investigated Sovaldi’s high price ($1,000 per pill; $84,000 for the full 12-week regimen). Senators questioned the extent to which the market was operating ‘efficiently and rationally’, and committee chairman Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) and ranking minority member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote to CEO John C. Martin asking Gilead to justify the price for this drug.[51] The committee hearings did not result in new law, but in 2014 and 2015, due to negotiated and mandated discounts, Sovaldi was sold well below the list price.[52] For poorer countries, Gilead licensed multiple companies to produce generic versions of Sovaldi; in India, a pill’s price was as low as $4.29.[53]
