When you listen to any information the news tells you about using a Canadian pharmacy, most often they try to use scare tactics to prevent you from using them. It almost seems like they have some sort of vested interest in making sure you do not get access to the savings you want. Why do you think this is though? Well one big reason is because Canadian pharmacies are huge competition. You will not be scared away from using a Canadian pharmacy when you learn the harsh reality of relying solely on American based ones. Just in case you do not know, here are some of them.
• The American drug companies treat health like a business and for them the goal is to make as much money as they can off the pain and suffering of people.
• American drug companies do not care if you get what you need or if you do not get it. They feel if you are in pain that is the time to take advantage of you because they know you want your pain to go away.
• American drug companies do not care if you have to sacrifice in other areas of your life to afford their medications.
Now all of this might seem very harsh at first, but it is a reality you have to accept. Now I know what a lot of people are thinking. Isn't using a Canadian pharmacy illegal and won't I be risking jail if I go this route? The reality is that the government will not go after people use use the medications for personal use. As long as you have a prescription.
You might be one of those people who does not care how much a medication costs, because you have health insurance right? Well here is the thing, as long as you are healthy the health insurance companies do not mind paying for your prescriptions. The knock if you have to pay extra for this type of coverage. Here is what a lot of them do not tell you though.
What they do not tell you is if you actually need to use that coverage the company is going to do what it can to save money. This means they are going to control the following:
ñ How much of a medication you get, even if your doctor says differently. The doctor is going to listen to the insurance company before he listen to you.
ñ Health insurance companies might only offer to pay for a generic and if you do not get that generic you will not get the drug at all. The issue with this is sometimes the generic is not as good as the real thing.
ñ Health insurance companies will only pay for prescriptions if you really need them. If there is any sort of alternative that is cheaper, then this is what they will pay for and deny you anything else.
Do you like the idea of having so much control in the hands of health insurance companies? The fact of the matter is it is hard to not rely on them when the cost of prescription medication in the US is so expensive. Very few people can pay for these drugs out of pocket. The people who need them the most certainly cannot pay for them out of pocket.
Using a Canadian pharmacy is going to allow you to afford paying for medications out of pocket. If you went this route insurance companies would not pay anyway. But when you go this route you will have access to the drugs you need at much more affordable prices. Paying out of pocket will not be an issue with you and you will find it is much better than relying on an insurance company.
Understand that Canadian pharmacies offer competition, but this is a good thing. American drug companies will just keep charging people more and more for the medications they need. If they do not have competition, then why should they not charge more. One day, whether it is soon or in the far future you might be in a position where you need pricey drugs. How will you feel if you are unable to afford them? What if a Canadian pharmacy offered them at the price you could afford them? What if your life is dependent on getting these drugs? Think about it.
