I will be spending the next four months in Toronto, Canada on an academic sabbatical, during which period I will have health coverage through my US employer. I have a work permit to do academic research in Canada. I am also diabetic.
My insurance will cover 90 days of insulin at a time, so one solution is to bring 90 days with me and return to the US for another 90 days shortly before that runs out. It would certainly be more convenient to purchase it in Canada.
What must one do to get a prescription from a US doctor to a Canadian pharmacy which will be covered by American insurance?
EDIT Having done some more research, it looks like I need to have a Canadian doctor co-sign the prescription and there are a lot of regulations about this. Is this something which is easy to arrange?
It is very hard to search for this, because I am swamped by information about Canadian online pharmacies, and people buying drugs to take back to the USA.
