High Cost of US Medicines

Synvisc is a medication that, when injected into the knee, creates a coating to prevent bone rubbing on bone if cartilage is gone. My insurance company would not cover the $800 cost but  the same drug, purchased through Canada, is half that amount-  $400.

I saved $400 by ordering my medication, which is manufactured in NJ and shipped to   Canada, from Canada.  Their web site for medications  is www.canadaRX.net

Maybe if we all find sources for more reasonable prices, our drug manufacturers will be forced to become more realistic with regard to the prices they charge.
