AND DON’T FORGET CANADA
Carolyn and I have saved literally thousands of dollars – almost always 40 to 90 percent of US drugstore prices – buying branded drugs from licensed Canadian pharmacists.
In spite of what the FDA and Big Pharma would like you to believe, it’s not only cheap but also safe and dependable. Even the FDA admits that they’ve found no evidence of any American ever sickened or who died from prescriptions filled by a Canadian pharmacy.
Nor is it strictly illegal to buy in Canada if you are purchasing for your own use with a US doctor’s prescription from a licensed Canadian pharmacist. [See FDA Advisory HFC-170, 4/3/98.] Over a million of us do just that. No one has been arrested yet.
In fact, most HMOs, including Blue Cross and AARP, will reimburse for drugs bought north of the border.
Soon, I will do an entire column about buying drugs in from our Northern neighbors, hopefully clearing some of the deceitful and shameless fog emitting from FDA/Pharma Lie Machine.
In the meantime, there’s lots of valuable information about buying from Canadian pharmacies in Canada: Your Prescription for Lower Drug Prices.
Remember: The most effective drug in the world is useless unless affordable.
* Generally, you can have no more than $3,000 is assets to be eligible for Medicaid. Complete information is at Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
