About The Program

Online Pharmacies – What You Need to Know – How to Keep Hoosiers Safe!

Pharmacy is the fastest growing cost component of healthcare.  As more plan designs have shifted that ever-increasing cost exposure back on to covered insureds, consumers are getting more creative and casting a wider net to source where they procure their drugs.   An ever more accepted and popular option is foreign-based online pharmacies.  But are those sources safe?  Are the drugs they are dispensing, even if they are labeled as ‘known’ brand names, the exact same product that you would get at retail within the U.S.?  The answer to that on increasing scale is NO!   In reality, a very large percentage of online pharmacies are not legit, and the ingredient content and quality of those drugs are suspect.  100,000 – 200,000 people die each year from counterfeit drugs!  Would you and your client customers assume that all or most of drugs coming from Canada are safe?  If so, you could be making a lethal decision.

Come to the IAHU monthly meeting in April to hear two subject matter experts in this area give you a dose of reality, and a prescription to proactively educate your clients (individuals and groups) so that they don’t fall victim to the dark underworld of online pharmacy.  This presentation has been filed and approved for 1-hour of Indiana Department of Insurance CE credit.
