CPPI conducted an online survey between September 3, 2018 and November 12, 2018. Based on the universe of followers of CPPI, this sample of 1,354 responses represents findings with a standard sampling error of plus or minus 5 percent.
We asked survey respondents to compare what they would spend on their prescriptions in the U.S. to what they pay by purchasing them through a licensed online pharmacy in Canada. On average, respondents reported saving $196 per month. An estimate of what our entire community of 61,893 may be saving based on our representative survey sample totals $12,131,028 in monthly savings.
This survey shows that cost is the primary reason that Americans order medications from online pharmacies in Canada as they feel it is a reasonable option for accessing life-saving and life-enhancing prescription drugs.
Despite what our opponents say, accessing safe medications from Canada can result in significant cost savings and year-over-year our community continues to share the realities of importation in our annual survey.
We will continue to update our average monthly savings as we receive input from our community. If you would like to share how much you save each month by ordering your medications from licensed, legitimate online pharmacies in Canada, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
