Thousands of Americans have missed their prescription medications because of U.S. Postal Service delays that have grown during the pandemic and, that since the beginning of July, have resulted in a dramatic decrease in on-time deliveries.
While the delays have put people in jeopardy of getting their prescriptions on time by mail, the postal service — which manages 1.2 billion prescription drug shipments a year — is being pressured to quickly fix the problem by reversing harmful policies responsible for the delays.
Although Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said recently that he would suspend operational changes to the postal service until after the election, many mail prescription recipients are still accusing the Trump administration of orchestrating the delays to undermine mail-in voting.
Listed among mail prescriptions are medications used to treat cholesterol or high blood pressure, which without them, could lead patients to have heart attacks or strokes.
Also, the delay of inhalers, insulin and anti-rejection medicines could cause major issues for who have had organ transplants.
