Hello folks! Hope you’re doing well today. As some of you may be aware, I spent about 6 years of my career as a banker to large corporate healthcare companies. In my role I got an inside look at how many companies do business and how various parts of our healthcare system work. In many ways I was truly amazed and fascinated by the science these companies were involved in; from pursuing cures to awful diseases or creating amazing new technologies that make surgeries safer and better. The ingenuity of these companies and the countless good they are providing for mankind was inspiring to see and I applaud that.
The other side of it that I also witnessed far too clearly was the profitization of healthcare and medicine. It is a sad story when you’re forced to wonder whether the primary motive is to maximize profit or deliver better healthcare. Our system has undoubtedly evolved for both the caregivers and receivers and the process has become so corrupt and expensive. If you’re curious to know more about how healthcare in America got to where it is today, a great book that I highly recommend is The History and Evolution of Healthcare in America. I gave it a read a few years ago and it was certainly eye-opening.
Pharma Out of Control?
I wrote a guest post back in 2016 on Financial Samurai’s website title Why is Healthcare so Expensive? Hint: Look in the Mirror. In that post I discussed some of the biggest reasons healthcare has gotten out of control and one of them was the cost of pharmaceuticals. Here is a snippet from the post:
“It is true that the U.S. pays more for drugs than even other wealthy nations such as Canada, Germany, and Japan. This is largely due to the U.S. lacking any sort of central or universal healthcare system responsibility for negotiating or regulating such costs. To me, this appears fixable and definitely something policy experts should consider.”
I went on to say:
“It (expensive pharmaceuticals) has even led to a new business opportunity for some in Florida where there are currently about 15 stores that help customers place pharmaceutical orders in Canada and overseas at prices up to 70% off U.S. prices (per Kaiser Health News).”
Since the time of writing though, the industry of importing cheaper brand name drugs from Canada has grown. The US FDA has even legitimized the practice, allowing for the personal importation (including via mail order) of a 90-day supply of some prescription drugs.
I’m here today to offer a band-aid to America’s healthcare system and that comes in the form of mail order pharmaceuticals from Canada. [Youdrugstore.com] offers safe, mail-order prescriptions which can cut your drug costs up to 80%.
I’m not the type to recommend companies to folks often, but check them out for yourself. Youdrugstore.com is certified and licensed, rated A+ and in good standing with the Better Business Bureau, certified and verified by CIPA (Canadian International Pharmacy Association) and MIPA (Manitoba International Pharmacy Association) as a safe online pharmacy, and has received the max “5 checks” rating from PharmacyChecker.com which is an independent third party responsible for vetting online pharmacies for consumer protection.
While ordering online prescriptions have gotten a bad name over the years, and rightfully so, it may be worthwhile considering it today. The average American spends more than $1,300 per year on prescription medication which continues to rise as costs historically step up 5-10% annually. If you fall into this category, the ability to save up to 80% on brand name pharmaceuticals might do wonders for your budget!
YouDrugStore offers savings of 50% or more on most prescription medication, offers free shipping on $100 orders, there are no monthly membership fees, and it ships worldwide. You will need an active prescription to buy medication. However, if your doctor has refills listed on the original prescription then you won’t have to send another copy. Note that if you need pharmaceuticals right away, the local pharmacy is your best bet. Youdrugstore’s shortest delivery is three days.
You can find medications for diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, allergies, etc. Some of the most popular prescriptions include Lipitor, Nexium, Synthroid and Crestor.
A Word from The Green Swan
America needs a band-aid. Buying pharmaceuticals from Canada might be that temporary solution for you. Hopefully one day we can reform our healthcare system for the better and get some real, permanent solutions.
While you may be looking to save money on your medications, it is best to explore all options first and do your research. Check your local pharmacy and check trusted online pharmacies for savings. Do your research and be a wary buyer.
Thanks for taking a look!
