This is being sent from Joel Dulberg, formerly of 60 Minutes audio post - production who retired last August.
The wife, Rosemarie and I, currently live in Maine on an island called Megquier, also the e.mail address at aol.com.
I've recently spoken with Tony Cuc and advised him that we have sent away, at the suggestion of our Maine neighbors, for a publication called The Consumer's Pharmacy Guide. It is available from Green Tree Press in Erie, Pa and the cost is $12.95 plus $3.95 for shipping. I don't have it as yet.
In it, which is 80 pages in length, they list thousands of prescriptions which are available from pharmacists in Canada. The savings, over American costs are up to 84%.
All one has to do is get a prescription from your local doctor, have the doctor call a Canadian 800 number and the prescription will be sent on to you, no taxes, no duty to pay!
You pay in US dollars using any major credit card or check.
If you are a veteran, the book shows you a little known way to obtain all of your prescription drugs for only $2.00 per prescription for a 30 day supply of any drug you need. Everything is listed on how to do this in the book ..... so they say.
Furthermore, if the book is not what they claim, which I doubt, the company offers a full refund of your money.
The book is available from: Green Tree Press, Inc. Department 906 .... 3603 West 12th Street, Erie, PA 16505. The phone number there is: 814 - 833 - 6353.
As I said, I don't have it as yet, having just ordered yesterday, but when I get it and have the chance place an order, I'll post another message on the web.
Or, if anyone would like to call me, I can read off what the cost of a particular drug would be from their listings. I don't know how often prices would be updated or prescriptions added or deleted as yet.
This might be an alternative answer to the drug coverage AARP offers.
Good luck to all.
