Prescription drug costs are a key concern for many plan sponsors, so much so that some are looking across the border to ease the financial burden. Ed and Scott welcome Lisa Carlson back to the podcast to discuss the legalities of bringing in drugs from another country...prescription drugs that is.

  • Why would an employer consider offering imported prescription drugs?
  • Are imported drugs really cheaper than what we have available in the US?
  • Are imported drugs made in the jungle?
  • How does one acquire these imported prescription drugs? (Ed’s eager to know.)
  • Are there any clinical concerns with imported prescription drugs? Legal concerns?
  • Is Lisa going to break Ed’s capitalist heart with this one? (Yes.)
