Hello, I am a Korean immigrant living in Canada. I was curious about what makes Korean medication cheaper compared to Canadian medication. When I was younger, I remember my parents paying less than 10000 won for my medication but living in Canada with insurance, I pay $100. So, it left me with curiosity. We are comparing two different medications here but I've realized that medication is so much more expensive here in Canada.
