In a Nutshell: Prescription drugs in the U.S. can come with astounding price tags, even when people have health insurance. NorthWestPharmacy.com provides relief by searching the world over for the lowest prices on prescription medications from trusted and licensed sources and passing those low prices on to clients. NorthWestPharmacy.com customers can count on speedy responses and attentive customer service — it even has licensed pharmacists on hand to speak with people who have questions about their prescriptions. Because of its affordable prices and quality service, we are recognizing NorthWestPharmacy.com with our Editor’s Choice™ Award for Discount Medications.
Unexpected medical expenses regularly throw a wrench into millions of Americans’ financial plans. Even folks who live relatively comfortably and have their basic needs covered teeter on the brink of financial hardship should an unforeseen cost arise.
In fact, a survey revealed that 40% of Americans would not be able to afford an unanticipated bill of $400 without going into debt.
These scenarios are often framed around a single event — a trip to the emergency room or a round of pricey medical tests. But for many people, the high prices continue when they get their prescriptions filled at the pharmacy.
Even with insurance, I’ve had a few prescriptions filled that made my jaw drop when I saw the price. And, like myself, most Americans are likely to get those prescriptions filled by a nearby pharmacy — a couple of ubiquitous chains come to mind — because they don’t know there are other options available.
Enter NorthWestPharmacy.com. The company fills prescriptions online and over the phone, and ships affordable medications to customers all over the world.
“The drug companies make it very difficult for people — they want to continue to overcharge Americans and hold them captive to these high, inflated prices,” said Mike Bhangu, Call Center Operations Manager at NorthWestPharmacy.com.
But with its competitive pricing, NorthWestPharmacy.com is able to provide people with a safe, affordable alternative to the big chain pharmacy down the road.
“I’ve heard stories from people saying, ‘Oh, because of NorthWestPharmacy.com, I can turn my heat back on’ or ‘Now I can buy my grandkids Christmas presents because I have a little bit more money,’” Bhangu said.
Because of its low pricing and high-quality service, we are recognizing NorthWestPharmacy.com with our Editor’s Choice™ Award for Discount Medications.
Sourcing Medications from All Over the World to Find the Lowest Prices
NorthWestPharmacy.com is able to deliver prescription drugs at such low prices because it searches the world over for the most affordable medications, and buys them.
“We work hard here to ensure that all of NorthWestPharmacy.com’s valued customers have access to affordable medications,” Bhangu said. “I think everyone should.”
NorthWestPharmacy.com provides customers with an average savings of more than 50% off prices they would encounter at their local pharmacies, according to the company. Many customers end up saving over 90%.
“We’re so confident you will get the biggest savings on your prescription drugs from us that we offer a Lowest Price Guarantee,” according to the NorthWestPharmacy.com website.
Bhangu said the company carries thousands of products, including over-the-counter medications.
He said one of the most common questions he receives from potential customers is how they know the company can be trusted and the medications are safe.
“It’s a valid question because there are some rogue websites out there that aren’t even asking for prescriptions,” Bhangu said. “I tell them, ‘Look, first and foremost, if it’s a prescription item, if a company is not asking for a prescription, that’s a red flag right away.’”
Of course, NorthWestPharmacy.com requires customers to submit their prescriptions before it fills orders. The company also has professional pharmacists available to consult with customers who have questions about their medications.
Bhangu said that, before NorthWestPharmacy.com goes into business with a fulfillment center, it is carefully vetted by an expert to ensure the center is fully licensed and employs fully licensed pharmacists.
“NorthWestPharmacy.com will not work with anyone who doesn’t meet stringent protocols and guidelines because it wants to ensure that our customers are getting safe and effective products,” he said.
The company is also certified by third-party organizations to ensure it is meeting the highest safety standards.
Putting People First with Prices and Service
Bhangu discussed how NorthWestPharmacy.com prioritizes providing quality customer service because it is delivering medicine crucial to many people’s quality of life.
That means being ready to respond quickly to online orders and phone calls, and being attentive to the customer’s needs.
“With most industries and call centers, I believe the hold times are anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes. We try to get our hold times below 30 seconds,” Bhangu said. “Someone’s not holding on the phone to order a pair of shoes. This is possibly a life-altering medication they need to get as soon as possible.”
Getting medication on time is just one way the company demonstrates its commitment to customers, Bhangu said. NorthWestPharmacy.com’s affordable pricing is an equally important factor when it comes to customer service.
“Some people who are taking medication in the U.S. — it’s so expensive that maybe they are supposed to be taking one pill a day — but instead they are taking half a pill, or quarter pill, or a pill every other day.”
This can be extremely problematic because many medications will only work at the prescribed dosage and not taking enough can cause other complications with a person’s overall health.
“We just try to do whatever we can for the customer and customer service is the most important thing for us,” he said.
While many of NorthWestPharmacy.com’s orders are taken online or over the phone, the company even accepts orders by mail for customers who feel more comfortable seeing everything on paper.
Satisfied Customers Speak to the Value of NorthWestPharmacy.com’s Service
For people who like to see more evidence of NorthWestPharmacy.com’s trustworthiness and affordable pricing, the company makes available an array of testimonials from satisfied customers.
“If our hundreds of thousands of reviews and stellar TrustScore seem overwhelming, why not meet some of our patients one-on-one through their personal stories that give you a picture of what NorthWestPharmacy.com savings, safety and service is like?” according to the company. “Their sole motivation is to share a great thing — their NorthWestPharmacy.com experience — with others.”
Bhangu recalled one customer in particular, Sarah K., who was spending $2,000 per month on just one of several medications she had to take. Sarah was going into debt and had spent $50,000 in just two years on prescriptions.
She credits NorthWestPharmacy.com with changing her life, Bhangu said. She said she has saved at least $22,000 in medication costs since becoming a customer of the pharmacy and is on her way to getting out of debt.
“I tell everyone I know that takes medication and other doctors about NorthWestPharmacy.com because I feel it is wrong of me to not say something when NorthWestPharmacy.com could help someone else. PLEASE PLEASE give it a chance!” Sarah writes on the company website.
The NorthWestPharmacy.com website is full of stories like Sarah’s.
NorthWestPharmacy.com is the most reviewed and independently five-star rated online pharmacy in the world, according to the company website, and receives among the highest scores of any pharmacy brand on TrustPilot.
If you’re like I was and thought the chain pharmacy down the road was your only option for prescription medications, NorthWestPharmacy.com may be just the remedy your wallet has been looking for.
