Article Body:
Let us discuss about the present medical system in USA. Being ill, one
must see a doctor for consultation after paying some fees. Then he will
rush to the Medicine shops for medicine, which is the remedial treatment
of his disease. If the disease is complicated that warrants stay at
hospital and /or operation, he will be admitted to a hospital and can go
home after recovery only after paying the bills of the hospital. In every
case the bill is fat and some times go beyond the reach of one’s
capacity. People like me have studied and raised voice against such
system.

Cost of medical treatment is enormous in America, thanks to the systems
developed here. There is an unholy nexus between the Insurance companies,
doctors and medical Service providers, which has sky rocketed the medical
treatment cost. The situation is so much grave that we have once read
that 25% of Americans have no health insurance coverage.

Because maintaining the insurance is also a high cost affair and may be
beyond the reach of common Americans so much trapped with Credit Card
Bills, rising unemployment or under employment or other problems.

The high cost of medicine has led to the development of the On line
Pharmacies. Every internet site is now flooded with advertisements of
them trumpeting that they are the best and reliable.

We are not very sure about the authenticity of these Online drugs.

The On line pharmacies sell medicines without doctor’s prescription, more
over, they offer Online Prescriptions recommending medicines, if any
person asks for a particular disease.

This probably helps the person get back the cost of medicines from the
Insurance companies. Some times insurance companies refuse to pay the
cost of such types of medicines.
The tussle is still on. May be one day federal rule will be enacted so
that insurance companies may be forced to pay the online medicine bills
to the benefits of common Americans.
The purchasing of medicines from a Discount Pharmacy is very common in
the country, as you will get generic drugs at far low price than the
Branded ones. So this system is here to stay.

I cannot understand how a Discount Pharmacy can supply medicines with
discount! Are they bulk purchase the unpackaged medicines from the
manufacturers and package them in their workshop and sell as the generic
drug of the branded ones?

In one article I have read that people had to go to either Canada or
Mexico to purchase branded drugs at cheap rate. Funny thing is that the
medicine is manufactured in America, but cannot be sold at America with
affordable price to common citizens, while importers in foreign countries
can sale the drug with reduced price. So people residing near the border
can cross the border and purchase it at reduced price! Such is the clutch
of the Insurance companies in the USA.

So long as this unholy nexus between the insurance companies, health
service providers and doctors will last, On line Pharmacy will remain, in
spite of propaganda against them.

Because they are the only way to get the right medicines at right moment
with or without a prescription with less price which common man can
afford.

I am not against the Medical Insurance companies. It is true if we share
of risks of high cost of medical treatment among ourselves, nothing is
better than this. But it does not mean, that cost of the medical
treatment should be jacked up to give the business to the insurance
companies so that people are compelled to take the coverage that too also
with high premium.

I think Government can do some thing in this respect. People below
certain income level can be provided with free treatment or treatment
with reduced cost if he is not properly covered under proper medical
insurance. My article is getting lengthier. I will raise it again if
opportunity comes.
