Re: Our Medical Experiences in Mexico

cupper. Who is asking you to trade? Why do private MRI facilities even exist up there?

The US healthcare system is broken and we didn't come close to fixing it with Obamacare. That was predominantly a social program, not a fix. However, when we do, the Canadian system won't have the same availability it has today. Like all business, your most profitable customers are typically carrying the load for the rest. Business considers the smaller players to be incremental profit at lower margins, that's how Canada gets away with negotiating capped pharma costs with the suppliers. However, once you start making less on your most profitable, that gets passed to the rest. If I were in your shoes, I would want the US to keep things just the way there are, but we won't.

Mexico is going to have the same problem. However, Mexico also has a serious pharma counterfeiting problem. One out of every 10, in fact. Counterfeiting exists everywhere, but can you imagine going to a pharmacy in the US and thinking there is a 1 in 10 chance that your bottle is fake? That's scary.
