    I'm looking for a good Rx insurance program, not health insurance because that would be too much $$.But I've been researching and with my 5 prescriptions running $300-$500 a month for Rx's alone its probably worth it to pay $50 or $100 a month for some sort of Rx coverage so I can at least use some of the private pharmacies since CVS and Walgangs are both under DEA investigations. So any Rx plans you know a single guy with low income can get lemme know here or PM. I sincerely thank you in advance.

    Don't know if you can get the ones you need from them, but since I lost health care I have been using these guys - http://www.planetdrugsdirect.com/

    The one drug I take was over $500 for three months and is only $90 delivered to my door.

    The thing I can't understand is how these companies can sell so cheap? Compared to US companies.

    My order is placed online to Texas, even though the company is from Canada, The drug is shipped from Germany, the credit card is billed to New Zealand, and made in India by the original pharmaceutical company!!! Just seems weird to me.

    Its like the offshore casino's, Its actually illegal but by using US payment gateways and other loopholes they can do it. I also checked www.medsstoreinternational.com who my friends mother gets her meds from but I see they don't dispense any DEA scripts so mexico may be my best option, Here to mail order DEA scripts you have to have high dollar insurance. And you can't even buy it, it has to be gotten thru a large corporation. This is what the US powerhouses told me, MedCo and CareMark, Thanks for the tip I'll check it out. Now how they sell it so cheap is its just some chemisty. A pill press is stupid easy to make or get. So we pay copyright laws on our drugs which makes you heart meds $500 a month, but $50 in canada. The pharmie's reason is it cost so much money to make the drug they need to be reimbursed 100 times then they put out generics. What your getting is generics made in india which is nothing bad, just made somewhere else.

    But these, the ones I'm getting, are not generics, there the brand name ones. My doc, who was born in India, says that we would be surprised at the number of drugs that are actually made there but sold and repackaged here. Don't know if its true but just what she said.

    You'd also be shocked how many counterfits make it all the way to CVS and Walgreens. I doubt your getting namebrand because that would be illegal for copyright laws, and even then when you have a generic it just goes by chemical name. If you don't mind telling me your brand name med or two and their imprints?
    Also each country has its own brand names and generics. My migrane meds in the US is immitrex, in EU it immigraine. Both considered namebrand but in reality immitrex is the brand name and immigraine is a name brand generic.
    On the other hand I may have found a good Rx insurance. Its the same company thats supposed to run the patient assistance program I'm applying for but it says its open to the public and has C2 delivery service. Only draw back is 14 day turn around.
