The high cost of medication in the United States has been a controversial topic for quite a while, especially for the nearly 1 in 7 adults who are suffering from diabetes. The annual medical costs for these individuals can go beyond a staggering $16,000. This can be particularly devastating for those individuals without adequate medical coverage who may be forced to shoulder a significant financial burden, ration or skip doses of their medication, or in some cases even go without their critically needed drugs. Such outcomes can result in deteriorating health and even lead to death in some situations. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts or desires, doctors in the United States have no power or authority when it comes to setting the prices of the life-changing drugs they prescribe to their patients.
Every year though, countless Americans travel to their northern neighbor in order to get prescriptions filled in Canada where they can benefit from the significantly lower drug prices available in the country. Canadian government regulations result in medications costing up to 90% less in Canada than in the United States, a huge difference that can make a real impact on those struggling to pay for their drugs. However, except for those living very close to the American/Canadian border, traveling internationally to buy medication is not really a viable option for most US residents.
In 2020, Pharma Giant was established with the objective of enabling Americans to acquire cost-effective medications through pharmacies in Canada. In addition to providing much better pricing, Pharma Giant is also able to help Americans get through certain drug shortages when they occur in the US. Patients can browse through a selection of over 3,000 drugs on the platform, which includes treatments for a variety of ailments including allergies, arthritis, asthma, blood pressure, cancer, diabetes, and other medical conditions. Additionally, PG offers many generic versions of drugs, some of which might not be currently accessible in the US market.
