Recent polls among U.S. seniors reveal sweeping dissatisfaction with the new Medicare Part D prescription drug program. Savvy seniors establish a new trend by turning to Canadian pharmacies to cover Medicare gaps.

Patients have the flexibility to return to their Medicare plan and even change it annually but they can save dramatically in the meantime by ordering from Canada.

The enrollment period for the controversial Medicare Part D prescription drug program has been marked by mass confusion and inadequate resources to help American seniors make informed choices. But even when seniors understand the program, new surveys indicate the majority still don’t like it.

As a result, a new trend is emerging that combines mail-order medications from licensed Canadian pharmacies like ADV-Care (http://www.PharmacyOnTheNet.com) with low premium Medicare plans. Enrollees with more than $1600 in annual retail spending are discovering that a smart combination of both programs offers the best possible solution to afford their medications.

The formula for success is simple:

Seniors should order from Canada whenever paying full price for a drug out-of-pocket.

Unfortunately, there are many circumstances when Medicare D will require seniors to pay full price for a drug:

1) When drugs are not covered by a plan’s formulary

2) When entering the coverage gap or “donut hole” after $ 2,250 in annual retail drug purchases

By purchasing their drugs from Canada in these situations, seniors can save 40 – 70% and still retain the future insurance benefits of Medicare D if needed. They will also avoid the penalty to their monthly premiums for late enrollment after May 15th, 2006.

ADV-Care recommends that seniors call our pharmacy toll free at 1-888-611-5582 to have a free case analysis performed to determine which Medicare D plan would be optimal to combine with Canadian medications. Depending on what drugs a patient takes, it may be advisable to choose a very low premium Medicare plan and then order all drugs from Canada. In the vast majority of cases, Canadian drugs are more affordable than Medicare D so it makes sense to take advantage of their savings.

“American seniors are realizing that Medicare D is a costly form of insurance, not a government benefit and that they are gambling when they enroll. They are paying in advance for future piece-of-mind, but at what cost?! ADV-Care can help them afford their medications now while still retaining the insurance benefit should they need it later, says Ramy Attalla, Director of Communications at ADV-Care (http://www.PharmacyOnTheNet.com).

“Patients have the flexibility to return to their Medicare plan and even change it annually but they can save dramatically in the meantime by ordering from Canada.”

ADV-Care is licensed by the Ontario College of Pharmacists, and has been safely dispensing medications to Canadian & U.S. residents for 6 years. All medications are Health Canada approved and are dispensed by licensed pharmacists.
