Every year my wife reaches the end of her Medicare Part D coverage (the infamous Doughnut hole) due to the over inflated prices of Medicare Part D prescription drugs. So she had to make a choice today. Pay her Medicare Part D Provider Prescription Solutions $315.13 for a 90 day supply of Crestor, or order Crestor Generic (there is no generic Crestor in the USA) from Canada Drugs for $145.71 for a 90 day supply of Crestor (See graphic). She went with Canada Drugs.
It's a real shame when citizens of the good old USA have to rely on
Canada to do the right thing when it comes to the price of prescription
drugs, but my dear sweet wife of over fifty years understands it cost
the insurance companies a lot of money to lobby our representatives,
about $1.4 million a day, and she wouldn't want the Health Care CEO's to do without. As for me I think they're a bunch of greedy unpatriotic assholes!
