Eastman Prescription Changes
Eastman Chemical says beginning in 2014 they will encourage their employees to buy prescriptions from the Internet because it is cheaper, but is it safer? The new plan will ask those who take medical maintenance medications for ongoing condition like diabetes or high blood pressure to order the prescription off the Internet, and if they use a real pharmacy they are likely to have to pay more. Local pharmacies are now saying that it could hurt them, especially those that are independently owned and does not have a corporation to absorb losses. They say the patient could be paying as well, but not just high prices, with their health. Not having an actual pharmacist could lead to drug interactions for the patients and that won’t make them healthier. The change in policy is being blamed on the 2015 implementation of the Obama Health Care Act. (CC)
