Chronic Meds - JASE Medical

The Number One Reason to Order a Years Worth of Your Medications from Jase Daily – NOW

(And 2 other reasons)

Jase Medical recently launched Jase Daily, a 365-day emergency supply of prescription medicines mailed to your door, just like the Jase Case. Their extensive list of chronic medicines covers heart and blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, family planning, mental health and more. I recently placed my order and found the form easy and self-explanatory. It is reviewed by a board-certified doctor before filling the prescription.

 I have a primary doctor, however the assurance and peace of mind of having enough back up meds to weather the coming storms (pick one) allows me to focus on other priorities. With the continued escalation of tensions throughout the world, the last thing you should have to worry about is your prescription medications running out and there is no way to refill them. Check it out, I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

3 reasons to order a years’ worth of medications from Jase Daily-NOW

  1. The UPS Teamsters Union has a pending strike starting August 1, 2023 if an agreement isn’t reached. Their contract expires July 31st.UPS is the world’s largest package delivery company in the world, with more than 495,000 employees in over 200 nations. These drivers carry a whopping 6% of the United States gross domestic product. (GDP).

UPS Healthcare , a division of UPS, delivers lifesaving devices, critical diagnostic tests and medications to hospitals, clinics, laboratories, and pharmacies. Over the past decade, this division has been acquiring health logistic carriers, such Bomi Group Multi-National Healthcare Logistics Firm, which has facilities in 37 countries, 2,000+ daily flights to 220 countries/territories and more than 950 global field stocking locations. This global health network would be severely impacted if this strike took place and will directly impact delivery of pharmaceuticals. Could one of your chronic medications be on that list?

12 weeks and counting

On the UPS Teamsters Union website is a countdown clock boldly displayed on its front page. As it stands of this writing, the ticking clock is at just a little over 12 weeks until the strike if their demands aren’t met. The international union branch of Teamsters is demanding settlement of 28 of 30 open settlements and riders. Various news reports and interviews are pointing to a strike as very likely. Teamsters’ union president, Sean O’Brien has been touring the country and holding rally’s ahead of the strike, instructing workers to save money to weather the coming strike.

In the event of a strike, the domino effect and pressure put on other carriers, such as Fedex will surely result in delays, lost packages and overworked drivers. Not only the pharmaceutical industry will be affected, but all facets of commerce will come to a standstill. How long is unknown.

History repeating itself- The strike of August 4, 1997

The UPS strike in 1997 lasted 15 days and saw 187,000 UPS Teamsters strike. Back then, there were 2 main issues the union was fighting for- to maintain control of the pension fund and to create full-time positions from the part time ones. The Teamster union now represents about 330,000 members. That is nearly double the number compared to over 25 years ago.

That collective action stopped delivery of 80% of UPS shipments, with 7 million packages remaining in backlog and a loss of $780 million. President Clinton encouraged both sides to settle, but he did not seek an injunction under Taft-Hartley to end the strike. 

There has been no public statement from the Whitehouse regarding if President Biden would intervene using the Taft Hartley act if the strike does take place.

  1. Increasing tensions between China and the US could mean supply chain disruption. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is how fragile the supply chain is, especially with healthcare related supplies and pharmaceuticals.

A step in the right direction- but stalled- A bill authored by the Congressional Research Service and sponsored by  representative Mike Gallagher,  (R-Wi-8)  was introduced in 2022 (HR 7121) – Protecting our Pharmaceutical Supply Chain from China Act of 2022. This bill, which was referred to the Subcommittee on Health, would phase out all Chinese sourced ingredients purchased by the federal healthcare programs by 2024. No further action has been taken.

  1. Imagine a world where you couldn’t get your lifesaving medications for an extended period of time-Imagine what would life be like without your blood pressure, diabetes, or asthma medications-This could be a very real possibility- Or if you run out of your mental health medications? Also, along these same lines, have you ordered your Jase case that contains 5 lifesaving antibiotics yet?

Prepared Equals Peace of Mind

Prepared equals peace of mind

What is labeled “prepping” or being a “prepper” used to be how everyone lived as recent as 50 years
ago. Our just- in- time supply chains weren’t around back then. Amazon, and online shopping didn’t
exist. Back then, if you wanted something you had to either call the company and place an order or mail
a check in.

The Sears catalog, along with many other catalogs would arrive and you and your family would spend
hours poring over the pages. These pages were filled with almost anything you may need or want, from
bed sheets to tools for the shop. In essence, those catalogs were the modern-day equivalent of Amazon.
Sometimes it would take a month or so for the much-awaited order to arrive. This was normal. Back
then, if you wanted something you had to plan for it.

Just in time supply chain

Fast forward to today. With all the wonderful technology, the same day deliveries, and almost any item
at our disposal within a few days, we have become complacent. Don’t get me wrong, we have used this
system to receive much needed items, in some cases almost immediately. This is the wonder of our
technological age. But it comes at a price. We take for granted that these supply chains will always be
running smoothly. Our world economy, for the past several decades has made life more convenient and
opened our lives to new experiences and time saving devices.
Technology- double edged sword

Our global world is a double-edged sword. The convenience we so much rely on, can and has been in the
process of failing over the past few years. The consequences to our healthcare system have been
devastating. Medical supplies such as contrast dye and drugs, have been in short supply or altogether
unavailable with no end in sight. This illustrates how fragile our medical system is. We are only one
natural or manmade disaster, pandemic, political or civil unrest from the complete shutdown of life
saving drugs and medical supplies.

Pharmaceuticals outsourced

The last major pharmaceutical manufacturing operation closed its doors and left the United States in
2004. Since then, nearly all the active ingredients for antibiotics and chronic medications – even
vitamins – are produced overseas, mainly in China and India.
Take, for instance the current amoxicillin shortage.

Across the country many pharmacies have reported a limited or not available supply of amoxicillin.
Amoxicillin is one of the first antibiotics used to treat strep throat, ear infections, urinary tract infections
and many other infections. The shortage includes amoxicillin in pill form, powder to mix with water to
make a suspension, and chewable tablets.

The American Society of Healthcare Pharmacists maintains a database of drug shortages and
manufacturers. They have listed amoxicillin manufacturers who have reported shortages or no
availability.

• Aurobindo, with facilities located throughout the world, refuses to provide availability
information.
• Hikma, based out of the UK, did not provide a reason for the shortage.
• Rising, based out of New Jersey has amoxicillin capsules and tablets available, but doesn’t state
whether they have amoxicillin powder available
• Sandoz, headquartered in Switzerland did not provide a reason for the shortage.
• Teva, which is based out of Israel did not provide a reason for the shortage.

However, the FDA states the only shortage is amoxicillin in powder form. This is because if even one
manufacturer can supply the necessary drug there is no perceived shortage.

This is very disturbing. All it takes is that one manufacturer to declare either a shortage or the drug
not available at all and the US supply is dried up.

Augmentin, (amoxicillin / clavulanate) is one of the antibiotics included in the Jase Case (see below how
to order a Jase Case). This can be substituted for amoxicillin if amoxicillin isn’t available.

Generics less likely to be manufactured

An analysis conducted by the US Pharmacopeia, a group that sets standards around the world for
medicines, found that antibiotics are 42% more likely to be in shortage in the US compared to other
types of drugs. Most antibiotics are now generic.

According to an analysis by the FDA Report “Drug Shortages: Root Causes and Potential Solutions”
identified three root causes of drug shortages.

1. Lack of incentives for manufacturers to produce less profitable drugs. (Generics aren’t very
profitable)
2. The market does not recognize and reward manufacturers for “mature quality systems” that
focus on continuous improvement and early detection of supply chain issues; and
3. Logistical and regulatory challenges make it difficult for the market to recover from a disruption.
The fragile global supply chains mean that if a pharmaceutical factory is down in China, you may not be
able to find your prescription at the neighborhood pharmacy. Lifesaving antibiotics are at risk of running
out faster than any other medicine. Medicines that are now available could easily run out. This could
lead to dire consequences.

Jase Medical is on a mission

JASE Medical is a telemedicine company with a singular focus to change all of that. This platform offers
access to basic emergency preparedness medications for every family in America.

And how will they do that? Well, it won’t happen overnight. But JASE Medical has done its homework
and established a nationwide network of physicians trained to evaluate individual needs, assess
conditions, and prescribe appropriate prescriptions for emergency preparedness purposes. From there,
licensed pharmacists fill your prescription, and the Jase Case is sent to your home.

These are the medications that will become lifesaving for you and the people you care about. And it’s all
done online through the JASE Medical portal.

How it works

When you log on to the platform and begin your consultation, you will find a simple and user-friendly
experience. The consultation takes little over five minutes to complete. After a licensed Jase healthcare
provider has reviewed your health history and any allergic reactions to medications, your prescriptions
are filled, and your Jase Case is shipped to your front door.

What’s in the JASE Case?
The kit contains the following antibiotic medications:
 Amoxicillin/Clavulanate.
 Azithromycin.
 Ciprofloxacin.
 Doxycycline.
 Metronidazole.
(Substitutions are made if allergic to one of the antibiotics)

All medications carry a level of risk, but these five antibiotics were selected for their effectiveness and
optimal patient safety. Guidance from the CDC says it best: “Antibiotics … save lives, and when a patient
needs antibiotics, the benefits usually outweigh the risks of side effects and antibiotic resistance.”

Some of the infections a Jase Case can treat
 Anthrax, plague and tularemia (resulting from bioterror).
 Bite wounds.
 Cellulitis.
 Diverticulitis.
 Intra-abdominal infections.
 Tooth infections.
 Ear infections.
 Pneumonia.
 Sinusitis.
 Strep throat.
 Urinary tract infection.
 and more.

When access to your healthcare provider isn’t possible (you are on vacation, etc.) your Jase case
includes a symptom and antibiotic use handbook titled the “Emergency Antibiotic Guide “with easy-to-
follow instructions to ensure proper use of the antibiotics if indicated.
What about chronic conditions?

Soon, the JASE Medical platform will provide emergency preparedness medicines for those with chronic
medical conditions (such as blood pressure and other chronic conditions). JASE Medical’s same
physician network will assess your condition and the need for appropriate preparedness medicines.

Ongoing support

As part of its mission to prepare you medically, JASE Medical provides unlimited ongoing support from
their physician network for questions about any of the medications prescribed.

What about shelf life?

The good news about antibiotics is that they last longer than you think. The FDA’s Shelf-Life Extension
Program found that 88% of the drugs studied maintained their potency and safety beyond the published
expiration date. The extended usability of these medications ranged from 5.5 years to as many as 23
years beyond their printed expiration!

The JASE Case antibiotics all carry the FDA’s required expiration dates. JASE Medical endorses those
dates.

Value and peace of mind

At the end of the day, this is all about peace of mind and knowing that you are ready for the
unexpected. Knowing that you have found a solution, priced at a fraction of what it would otherwise
cost you, adds to that peace of mind.

Go to JaseMedical.com and secure your emergency medications, an emergency antibiotic guide,
unlimited physician consultation and a team of professionals who are on a mission to keep you and your
loved ones prepared and safe during these uncertain times.
