Senate report finds ‘significant’ prescription drug delivery delays under Postmaster General Louis DeJoy

WASHINGTON — A report released Wednesday by two Democratic senators found “significant and increasing delays” in the mail delivery of prescription drugs under the tenure of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.

The lawmakers in charge of the investigation – Sens. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts – said some of the nation’s largest pharmacies told them they were experiencing, on average, delivery delays of 18-32%, meaning deliveries that would normally take 1-2 days would instead take 3-4 days, the report concluded.

The senators said the delays could pose “serious health risks to millions of Americans and (increase) costs for consumers and taxpayers.”
