Q. Could you please tell me if there are reputable Canadian drug companies? Our medical bills are destroying us financially!

A. You are not alone. A lot of people are feeling the pinch of a bad economy. Many older people are about to fall into the dreaded Medicare doughnut hole, in which they must pay 100 percent of drug bills out of their own pockets until expenditures exceed $4,350.

For someone on a limited budget, going from a $10 copay to $120 for a prescription is shocking. We are sending you our Guide to Saving Money on Medicine with a list of reliable Canadian drug stores that accept prescriptions from the U.S. We also discuss how to use generic drugs safely.

    You do not mention how to obtain the cost saving info on Canadian drug stores that accept American Rx … and do they qualify for Part D payment?
    PEOPLE’S PHARMACY RESPONSE: PRESCRIPTIONS PURCHASED FROM CANADA DO NOT QUALIFY FOR PART D. SEE OUR SAVING MONEY ON MEDICINE BROCHURE FOR MORE DETAILS.
