Today, Health and Human Services (HHS) released draft plans for prescription drug importation into the U.S., recognizing that it is safe and affordable.
While finalizing and implementing the plan could take many years, personal prescription importation already offers Americans an immediate and ongoing option for accessing safe and affordable prescription drugs. In fact, on average, Americans can save up to 80 percent on their prescription medications by buying them from Canada.
This latest announcement proves that the FDA and HHS believe that medications from Canada are safe and they can be included in the U.S. drug supply chain to help dramatically lower the price of pharmaceuticals.
On an invite-only conference call this morning, an HHS spokesperson reiterated the urgency of doing something about skyrocketing drug prices and the potential of importation to provide relief to Americans struggling to afford their daily health maintenance medications.
If you or someone you care for is struggling to pay exorbitant U.S. prices, please review our guidelines for finding a safe online pharmacy in Canada.
