Cybersecdn- The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given the green light to Florida’s program to import prescription drugs from Canada. This makes Florida the first state to receive approval to import drugs and comes after three years of delay and two lawsuits. The program is expected to save Florida residents millions of dollars in prescription drug costs.

As required by law, Florida is contracting with a private company, LifeScience Logistics, to arrange the importation of the drugs from a Canadian seller. The prescriptions are required to either be surplus or produced more than what Canadian manufacturers normally make so as not to impact their internal supply.

The program is expected to help Florida residents who are struggling to afford their prescription drugs. The state plans to import drugs to treat conditions such as HIV and AIDS, hepatitis C, diabetes, and mental illness. The program is expected to save Florida residents up to $150 million in the first year alone.
