— HealthPricer, which enables consumers to affordably fill prescriptions online, today shared that 19 million Americans now import safe, affordable medications form Canada and overseas. This finding, revealed in research by the Kaiser Family Foundation, resonates with the current consumer mood in the US. Americans are hoping that the new administration will address the growing, historically-prohibitive prices of medications. Essential brand name and generic medications are now out of reach for those who truly need them to survive.
Tens of millions of prescriptions in the U.S. are never filled due to the ever-growing prices agreed upon between Big Pharma and medical insurance companies. Industry research reveals that brand name drug prices increased 15.5% in 2015 compared to the inflation rate of 0.1%. Brand name medications have risen by double digits every year for the last four years, and 2016/17 numbers confirm the fact that these rates will put many drugs out of reach for those who rely on medications.
Retail costs increased for 269 brand name drugs when billed by pharmacy benefit managers to health insurers, in private and government plans. The average consumer who takes 4–5 brand name prescription drugs on a recurring is facing an annual cost of therapy of more than $26,000 during 2015. This is greater than the median annual income for Medicare beneficiaries.
It is no surprise that U.S. residents seek online pharmaceutical purchase options from Health Pricer when confronted with having to decide between buying medications, insurance, food, housing and gas. These are real-life problems for many Americans, and one way to take care of family health is to join fellow consumers using HealthPricer.com to buy the same pharmaceutical products sourced from countries such as Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Turkey. Even essential, basic generic medications continue to be priced hundreds and thousands of percent above what they once were. Generics are supposed to be the lower cost alternative, yet Americans can not afford even these from their own pharmacies and are turning to a safe, proven alternative.
As detailed on www.HealthPricer.com, purchases medications from properly, verified websites. These are the same brand name medications sold in the U.S., but at an incredible savings. If U.S. trends continue, older Americans will have to stop taking necessary medications due to prohibitive costs, leading to, “poorer health outcomes and higher overall health care costs.”
Health Pricer supports the staggering number of U.S. residents who absolutely can not afford their critical prescriptions. So many people want the option to order their medications online, yet come up against perceived safety issues instead of buying “safer, regulated” prescription drugs from a certified U.S. pharmacy. The online marketplace is complex, and misperception has lead to accepting these unfair marketplace prescription rules, hindering public access to affordable medication for those with legitimate medical issues. Unfortunately U.S. pharmaceutical industry lobbyists have so far been successful by blocking legislation for legal importation. This is in spite of the many needy Americans already relying on personal pharmaceutical importation, subject to seizure and possible destruction – though medicines are authentic and certified safe. www.HealthPricer.com helps these Americans.
