Let’s Talk: Tighter patent rules could help lower drug prices, study shows, with health policy correspondent Alison Kodjak.

Repeated extensions of drug patents help fend off competitors, researchers say, keeping prices high. And the fact that Medicare and Medicaid can't negotiate for discounts doesn't help, either. We’re taking your questions.

As Swiss Post and French Post merged into one entity (“Asendia”), our Mauritius supplier changed the routing for our orders, which will now get processed by French Post in Paris instead of by Swiss Post in Geneva. Given that Paris CDG airport is a larger hub than Geneva GVA, we hope this will mean quicker turnaround times and increased flight capacity and route options for delivering into the USA. Based on test shipments they set up using the French Post channel, we are seeing an average savings of 5 days in terms of delivery times. Using French Post is slightly dearer than Swiss Post, and we have undertaken to absorb that cost, so your fulfillment fee will remain the same. Tracking numbers will be provided as usual, which can be checked on USPS.com.
Come on in to fill your prescriptions at our SARASOTA location and take advantage of our 50% Off select items for you and your pets, or a gift for someone you love!! Always remember for the safety of our community please WEAR A MASK when you stop in. Looking forward to seeing you SOON!
