NEVADA BOARD GAMBLES ON CHEAP CANADIAN PRESCRIPTIONS

Published Online: Saturday, April 1, 2006   [ Request Print ]

The Nevada Board of Pharmacy narrowly approved a controversial plan to make it easier for state residents to import lower-priced prescriptions from Canada. The program, approved by a 4-3 vote, will involve the licensing of 4 Canadian pharmacies to mail prescription drugs to Nevadans.

The program has the backing of key members of the state legislature but must still be approved by Nevada's Legislative Commission before it can take effect. Under the new program, only drugs approved for use in both the United States and Canada will be eligible for sale to Nevadans. Certain other drugs that require refrigeration, such as insulin, also will be excluded.

The plan, which could take effect as early as May, will allow the approved pharmacies to provide patients with an e-mail address and a toll-free phone number to place orders or ask questions.
