reimportation

(rē″ĭm-pawr-tā′shŭn)
The purchase of drugs manufactured in their source nation by another nation to which the drugs are exported. At times it yields significant price advantages to the purchaser. Drugs manufactured in the U.S. are sometimes marketed abroad to other nations at low cost. The purchase of these drugs by American consumers from foreign pharmacies may yield cost savings accompanied by the risk that they may prove to be counterfeit or contaminated versions of the originals.
