Group plans drug trip to Canada



Published: Sun, May 5, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.


SHARON, Pa. -- The Alliance for Retired Americans is sponsoring a trip to Hamilton, Canada, for people who need prescription drugs but have high out-of-pocket prescription costs or no prescription insurance coverage.
The Alliance is providing the bus and an overnight stay in Hamilton free.
The Canadian Labor Council has arranged a location for participants to be seen by a doctor and issued a Canadian prescription.
Participants may have to pay a nominal fee in Canada for the doctor's services and will be taken to a Canadian drugstore to fill an initial three-month supply of each prescription. They will pay Canadian prices for those drugs and can use cash or a credit card.
Refilling prescriptions
Prescriptions can be refilled by telephone from the same pharmacy for a period of one year.
The bus will leave the Sharon City Centre parking lot by 9 a.m. May 13. Participants should arrive around 8:30 a.m. to check in. The bus will return to the lot around 8 p.m. May 14.
To receive a registration form, contact Beverly Colandrea at (724) 346-3537. She will make sure participants have the necessary form and prescriptions, which must be filled out by their regular physicians.
