Purchasing Prescription Drugs Online: Safety, Legality, and Saving Money

podcast and resources belowAPHA Expert Call-in

July 2019

Your client has been diagnosed, and treatment has been prescribed in the form of a very expensive prescription drug (not uncommon these days). A little research shows that there’s no generic equivalent and that all the possible opportunities for saving money on the cost of the drug are found online.

But how safe is that pharmacy you found online? Can those very low prices be real? Can you trust a pharmacy you find online will deliver the right drug, in the right dose? And what if it’s located in another country – what is the legality of ordering from abroad? Will your insurance cover a drug you buy online? Do you really a need a prescription?

Our guest expert for this APHA Call-in will be Lucia Mueller from PharmacyChecker. PharmacyChecker has been helping consumers purchase their drugs safely online, in the US, Canada, and other countries around the world, since 2002. They are experts in access to affordable medication online and at your clients’ local pharmacy.
