Emergency Contraception at The Prescription Shop

We were recently informed by a patient of excessive pricing at shoppers drug mart regarding emergency contraception (the morning after pill) We phoned both SDM and Rexall to check, and here’s what we found out:

Our price: $17.99       SDM: $36.99     Rexall: $40.00

Why do the chain drug stores take advantage of this emergency situation to take profits?

Because they can.

In our view, using the situation of a vulnerable patient as an opportunity to profit  is an unethical practice. Please support ethical health care providers, and share this information with anyone you feel may be at risk of being impacted.
