PharmacyChecker.com, an online pharmacy verification and consumer drug price comparison website, has launched www.PharmacyChecker.com/ES, a Spanish version of its popular website. The new website helps Spanish-speakers save as much as 90% on prescription medication. PharmacyChecker.com has been available in English since 2003 and has served millions of consumers searching for lower drug prices.
“No one living in the U.S. should have to forgo filling a prescription because of high drug prices, especially when lower prices on the same drugs are available to informed consumers,” says Tod Cooperman, M.D., CEO of PharmacyChecker.com. “We are pleased to extend our information to the Spanish-speaking community.”
According to the Pew Research Center, 38% of Hispanics living in the U.S. speak mainly Spanish. Studies show that Hispanics are more likely to forgo filling a prescription due to cost than the population at large. A Kaiser study found that while 12% of the non-elderly U.S. population doesn’t have health insurance, the figure rises to 21% among Hispanics. The uninsured often must pay the cash price of prescription medication at the pharmacy, which may be unaffordable.
The Spanish translations on www.PharmacyChecker.com/es are by qualified professionals and include consumer information about drug prices, buying medication online, personal drug importation, and drug discount cards.
