Prescription Drug Reimportation
The disparity of drug costs in the United States, Canada and Europe remains striking, and TSCL supports legislation which would make safe and secure prescription drug re-importation a reality. TSCL believes that the Medicare prescription drug benefit law remains flawed and further action should be taken to lower prescription drug costs.
Unfortunately, during the health care reform debate, the Senate rejected an amendment that would have allowed for prescription drug re-importation. TSCL will work to ensure that legislation permitting the safe and secure re-importation of prescription drugs is introduced during the 113th Congress. The goal remains to seek safe and affordable medicines for all Americans.
