Borderplex brand name medicine price differences
Source Full Text URL
Relatively high brand name pharmaceutical prices have led many US residents to cross the border into Mexico as 'medical tourists'. To examine the savings potentially available to consumers willing to cross into Mexico, data are collected and analysed for brand name prescription medicines sold in El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Retail pharmacy prices are generally lower on the south side of the border and substantial savings result for some medicines. For some products, however, shelf prices are lower on the north side of the border. © 2011 Taylor & Francis.
