Seniors Forced Back into the Workforce as the Economy Crumbles

Filed under: job market,recession,retirement,Uncategorized,workforce — robertprice @ 1:46 pm

As the current economic downturn continues, more and more seniors are finding themselves being forced to re-enter the job market. Times are getting tougher as finances are getting tighter. Those who were previously looking forward to retiring soon may have to hold off until the circumstances improve.

Many people are finding themselves in the same situation as Gary Jonson, a former marketing executive. Gary is turning 60 in the next few weeks and he was planning on retiring in the next few years. However, now he believes that this will not be the case as his 401(k) was hit hard by the recent market turmoil and now he expects to be working for at least another decade.

New Trends are Emerging as the Recession Continues

Job placement agencies have also seen a new trend emerge. Previously, seniors were calling in and saying that they needed a new job because their spouse wanted them out of the house or to keep them busy. Now, they are receiving calls from seniors saying that they need a job to sustain their lifestyle or to keep their house.

The recession is hitting everyone hard and now it is more important than ever to trim expenses wherever possible. Many people are now finding that they are able to generate extra money by saving on prescription medication by buying from CanDrugstore. Over the past few months we have been receiving a lot comments from customers saying that shopping at CanDrugstore.com saved them up to 70% on their monthly prescription costs. People on fixed incomes have found the huge savings to be especially important as their savings have diminished and they now need to save as much money as possible. While cheaper medication won’t save someone from re-entering the workforce due to necessity, it can certainly relieve some of the financial pressure. CanDrugstore aims to continue to support those in need by helping them weather this economic climate.

Prescriptions are Becoming More Affordable as People Warm to the Idea of Generics

Filed under: generic,new york,prescription,recession,Uncategorized — robertprice @ 5:40 pm

Doctors from all over the country have found that they are prescribing generics more frequently due to brand name drug patents ending while patients are increasingly becoming more accepting of the idea of generic drugs.

In New York alone, the prescribing of generics rose from 68.4% to 72.7% just last year according to Excellus Blue-Cross Blue Shield. In 2008, lower-cost generics lead to a prescription savings of $369 million which benefited taxpayers, patients, and employers according to health insurers.
Within in the last few years, numerous patents for high profile, brand name medications have ended and have become available as generic drugs. The vice president and chief pharmacy officer of Univera, Joel Owerbach said: “We’ve seen a growing list of generics coming onto the market, especially in 2006, and a coordinated effort by insurers and physicians to understand the opportunities to use them.”

In the coming years, as economic conditions worsen, the popularity of generic drugs will continue to grow as patients are educated on the benefits of generic drugs. Generic drugs are very safe as they are chemically identical to their brand name counterparts. Outside of the appearance, there are no physical differences between a generic and brand name drug. In addition, due to the lack of start-up costs associated with generics, they can typically be purchased for significantly less than the brand name counterpart once the patent is lifted. As health care costs increase, the use of generics will most likely become more prevalent.
