We have a great new Spanish version of our site that you can find here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/es/. We’re really proud of this! Spanish-speaking Americans and immigrants who can’t speak English or just feel more comfortable in Spanish can access our online pharmacy verifications, international and local pharmacy drug price comparisons, and learn how to afford and find savings of 90% on many prescription drugs.
As much as Americans overall are struggling to afford prescription medication, the problem is even worse in the Hispanic community. First of all, the uninsured rate is much higher among Hispanics and therefore they are more likely to pay the full cash drug price at the pharmacy. Sadly, studies show that Hispanics are even more likely to just not take prescribed medication at all because of cost. While of course most Hispanics living in the U.S. speak English – 38% speak mainly Spanish.
And check this out: there are more Spanish speakers living in the U.S. then in Spain! About 53 million overall, with 11 million of them native English-speakers who are bilingual. So the prescription savings information that is now in Spanish on PharmacyChecker.com could be a great boon to tens of millions of Americans and immigrants living in the U.S.
People who don’t take their prescribed medications can get sick, end up in the hospital or die. No one living in the United States should have to go without medication because of cost and our new Spanish site will potentially help fewer people make that decision.Tagged with: community, Hispanic, Spanish
