Trump administration opens door to importing medicine from Canada
Reuters

The Trump administration took a step Wednesday toward allowing importation of medicines from Canada, an action the president has advocated as a way to bring cheaper prescription drugs to Americans, but the pharmaceutical industry was quick to resist the move.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said it and the Food and Drug Administration will propose a rule that will allow it to authorize states and other groups to pursue pilot projects related to importing drugs from Canada.
The agency also said it would allow drugmakers to bring drugs that they sell more cheaply in foreign countries into the United States for sale here, an option the companies are unlikely to embrace.
Capital Alpha analyst Rob Smith, in a research note, questioned why manufacturers would voluntarily lower prices in the United States to match those in Canadian or any other foreign country.
The announcement comes as President Donald Trump aims to address the world’s highest drug prices ahead of the 2020 elections and after several high-profile policy failures.
Reuters has previously reported that the administration is considering broadening its plans to link the cost of some drugs for the government Medicare program to an international pricing index.
Trump also supports bipartisan drug pricing legislation designed to force pharmaceutical companies to give discounts when drug prices rise more than inflation.
Another piece of bipartisan legislation aimed at prices of drugs developed using federal research funds was introduced on Wednesday by Republican Senator Rick Scott and Senator Chris Van Hollen, a Democrat.
The importation idea still needs to be proposed and then finalized by Health and Human Services. The largest U.S. pharmaceutical and biotech companies said they opposed the idea of importation through their lobbyists PhRMA and BIO.
“There is no way to guarantee the safety of drugs that come into the country,” PhRMA Chief Executive Officer Stephen Ubl said.
Drug industry shares were slightly higher, with the NYSE Arca Pharmaceutical Index up 0.13 percent versus a broader flat market.
HHS Secretary Alex Azar said he has had prior discussion with Canada about importation and that it would be up to the states, pharmacies and distributors, who are expected to pursue the importation through trial models, to navigate the issues.
“There are hurdles of course, but the hurdles now are known. They are being laid out and they are surmountable,” Azar told reporters on a conference call.
The Canadian health minister’s office said in a statement that it will work to understand the implications for Canadians and to ensure it does not negatively affect supply or cost.

Earlier this month, Health Canada said the U.S. market is too large to rely on Canadian imports as a solution to the high cost of drugs.
Any implementation is still far away given the technical steps of rule making and that the proposals will face challenges, Evercore ISI analysts Ross Muken and Michael Newshel said in a research note. For instance, they said, while Democrats like importation, most Republicans in Congress oppose it.
Senate Democrats reacted with caution to the Trump administration moves toward allowing importation of medicines from Canada. “We have to look at the details of this plan to see if it amounts to much,” said Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer.
The first part of the proposal would allow states, wholesalers or pharmacists to submit plans for pilot projects for Canadian drugs if their raw materials are manufactured in the same plant as the U.S. version. It would exclude biologics, infused drugs, injected drugs and inhaled drugs for surgery.
The Trump Administration has had setbacks in efforts to bring down drug prices. Its plan to make drugmakers disclose list prices in TV ads had to be scrapped after the companies won a legal challenge, and it abandoned efforts to force pharmacy benefit managers to pass discounts onto Medicare recipients.

Pharmacists concerned as U.S. eyes cheaper Canadian meds
Antonella Artuso
Published:
August 1, 2019
Updated:
August 1, 2019 6:56 PM EDT
Any move by the White House to give Americans greater access to Canadian medications could worsen existing supply problems, Ontario Pharmacists Association Chair Jennifer Baker says.
“We are experiencing more drug shortages in the last three to five years than we have in the past — it’s been quite bad lately,” Baker said Thursday. “And this news of importation could provide that additional stress that could exacerbate those shortages for Canadian patients.”
She said pharmacists have seen shortages in a variety of medications, including cardiovascular drugs and antidepressants.
Reasons for the shortages have ranged from manufacturing issues to a shortfall of raw ingredients, she said.
Under the Safe Importation Action Plan announced by President Donald Trump this week, the U.S. could allow certain drugs from Canada to be imported.
“President Trump has been clear: for too long American patients have been paying exorbitantly high prices for prescription drugs that are made available to other countries at lower prices,” U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said in a statement Wednesday.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged to ensure Canadians have access to medication they need at affordable prices.
Trudeau said Health Canada ensures there is a “steady and solid supply” of medications for Canadians regardless of external or international pressures.
Several groups, including the Canadian Pharmacists Association, issued warnings that the Canadian supply cannot support both Canadian and U.S. consumers.
Individual American patients are already purchasing over-the-counter products such as insulin and EpiPens which are cheaper in Canada, Baker said.

American demand threatens Canada’s drug supply, groups warn Ottawa
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, in the race to challenge Trump in the 2020 presidential election, came to Windsor Sunday with an “insulin caravan” of patients seeking the drug at a fraction of the price.
Trump’s plan would allow the mass importation of medications, not just those available over the counter, Baker said.
“That becomes concerning for our entire prescription medication supply,” she said. “As pharmacists, our ultimate duty is to our patients in Canada and safeguarding that medication supply is really crucial to ensure that we’re able to best care for their health here in Canada.”
A Canadian Pharmacists Association survey found about 80% of pharmacists have noticed a significant increase in drugs shortages over the last three to five years, 96% of pharmacists are stressed by the current issues around drug shortages and recalls, and up to 20% of time in a pharmacist’s shift can be spent dealing with the problem, Baker said.

Drug industry urges Canada to act early on U.S. import plan

TORONTO — Canada’s main pharmaceutical lobby group has urged the government not to wait for drug shortages before responding to U.S. plans to import Canadian drugs, according to documents seen by Reuters.
The talking points were prepared last month by Innovative Medicines Canada (IMC) for its staff and member companies, before the Trump administration announced on Wednesday that it would allow U.S. states and other groups to start pilot programs importing cheap drugs from Canada in an effort to lower drug costs.
In one early version of its talking points, the IMC proposed the Canadian government ban all drug exports “unless otherwise permitted by regulation.”
“Wholesalers should not be permitted to export drugs in bulk from Canada, and there should be strict and significant penalties for exporting drugs where their export is prohibited by law,” a document prepared in May said.
It warned that “reliance on reactive measures after shortages occur may pose a risk to Canadian patients.”
Asked about the possibility of an export ban, IMC said in a statement: “This is not part of our current positioning shared with our members. That said, we believe the government has tools that could be used to prevent shortages.”
The lobby group’s efforts so far suggest industry is eager to derail the Trump administration’s plan. IMC’s members include major drug companies based in the United States and abroad, and large-scale shipments of cheap drugs from Canada could lower their profits.
The group works closely with PhRMA, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, the industry’s U.S lobbying group.
“Our government’s priority is ensuring that all Canadians can get and afford the medications they need,” Alexander Cohen, a spokesman for Canada’s health minister, said in a statement.
“All statements and decisions surrounding Canada’s drug supply are made based in the best interest of Canadians, and we are examining all options to ensure it remains secure.”
In the position papers reviewed by Reuters, the IMC warned it may not be possible for drug manufacturers to enforce contract terms with Canadian buyers that forbid the re-export of drugs.
“Although purchasing agreements with suppliers may contain clauses that would prevent bulk export to the US, many Canadian pharmaceutical companies are subsidiaries of US corporations and may become obliged to do so through US legislation,” the group warned in July.

Even if the U.S. plan proceeds as the administration has promised, shipments could be a year or more away, because of consultations required to pass new regulations.
The IMC documents suggest that a “first step” for the Canadian government would be to state publicly that it will act to protect drugs intended for Canadian patients in the event of any shortages.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau delivered something like that message personally on Thursday, at an event in the Arctic city of Iqaluit.
“We recognize the new situation brought on by American announcements, and Health Canada will continue to ensure that our priority is always ensuring that Canadians have access to the medication they need at affordable prices,” he said.
Reuters reported last month that Canadian officials had privately warned the United States they oppose any import programs that might threaten Canada’s supply or raise costs for Canadians.

Oh what a tangled web we weave..................................


even when LIE-berals are NOT TRYING TO DECEiVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The financial and legal implications of taxing Yankees who come here to buy drugs are HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Firstly- the not yet ratified NAFTA 2.0 - contains the same sort of restrictions...........................


on such selective tax discrimination on Yankees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The prices Cdns pay for products at home are REQUIRED to be the same as what visiting Yankees pay here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The NAFTA mess prohibits singling out Yankees for extra taxes that Cdns do not pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And even the most optimistic of LIE-berals CANNOT EXPLAIN AWAY that assertion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


WE MIGHT be able to deny Yankees the right to buy our drugs if all customers.......................................


HAD TO PRESENT A CDN GOVT HEALTH CARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Using such a legal restriction would be LESS DISCRIMINATORY...............................


and thus SLIGHTLY more acceptable to Yankees since they are not the only foreign nationality lacking such ID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The problem with that approach is that our economy is A BRANCH PLANT SUBSIDIARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Drug companies- most of them OWNED BY Yankees..............................


have arranged a carefully balanced set of sales deals with a succession of Cdn govts.........................................


and the deals regulate both name brand drugs and their generic counterparts...........................


FOR SUPPLY TO CDNS ONLY.............................................. .



with Cdns apparently more likely to be prescribed generic drugs because they are CHEAPER................................


and OLDER- having mostly been on the market long enough that patent law..................................


has either been relaxed or waived entirely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


LIE-berals have NO MORE ABILITY TO NAVIGATE this drug mess....................................


than they do of getting a satisfactory NAFTA DEAL sorted out and ratified!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


Note that LIE-berals have been working on NAFTA for FOUR YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And LIE-berals are actually FURTHER AWAY FROM A RATIFIED DEAL NOW..........................................



than they were last year at this time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As long as LIE-berals continue to engage in IDIOT ACTIONS that erode national security...................................


FOR BOTH Canada and United States.................................


LIE-berals WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE PROBLEMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Arrogant LIE-beral screwups have managed to ENRAGE ALL our friends and allies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-beral screwups are ENCOURAGING Iran, Russia, RED China, North Korea and the various radical Muslim TERROR groups.......


who all see LIE-beral values as CRAVEN COWARDICE from a govt that is about to SURRENDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yankees.......................AND enemies of the west..............................................


DESPISE LIE-berals for their CRAVEN HYPOCRISY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

Ottawa keeping tabs as doctors sound alarm about cancer drug supply

OTTAWA — The federal health minister’s office says it is keeping a close watch on the supply of three generic cancer drugs as doctors raise serious concerns about the risk of critical shortages across Canada.
The intravenous drugs in question are etoposide, vinorelbine and leucovorin.
Ginnette Petitpas Taylor’s spokesperson Alexander Cohen says the government has facilitated the importation of an international supply of etoposide in the short term.
Cohen says companies are conserving existing supply for patients and the shortage for that particular drug is expected to be over by the end of September.
In the case of vinorelbine, he says the company Generic Medical Partners Inc. is putting in place a distribution plan to supply 75% of demand for current orders by October and is also increasing production.
For leucovorin, Cohen says the federal government is working with companies on options to import an international supply as soon as possible.

“We’re closely monitoring the supply of each of the three cancer drugs, and have taken specific measures to ensure Canadians continue to have access to them,” he said in a statement.
CBC News reported on the weekend that hospitals in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have been scrambling to find alternatives and make existing supplies of the drugs last as long as possible.
