From CBS Marketwatch:
Prescription savings via Canada -- or the generic route
Run to Canada to save on drug costs, that is.

As part of efforts to respond to the ongoing rise in drug costs -- three times the rate of inflation during the first quarter of 2004, according to a study by AARP -- Boston recently became the largest city in the nation to offer prescription drugs from Canada.

The city's 14,000 workers and retirees eligible to participate in Boston's program are among the millions of Americans, especially the uninsured or underinsured, who are seeking ways to reduce their out-of-pocket medication expenses.
