You're underestimating the cost of the pills when passing through the hands of "insurance".
Any business who deals with insurance companies or, heaven forbid, a government contract knows that you'll wait months or years to get paid.
That means that you pay your suppliers for the pills and are left to hang waiting to get reimbursed. To deal with the aggravation you typically have to hire someone in your office just to deal with all the ins and outs of insurance or .gov contracts.
Meanwhile you have to borrow money to stay afloat.
It all passes to the bottom line.
