Wise consumer spending when it comes to prescription drugs can benefit you in many ways. Not only can it help save you money on your co-pay at the pharmacy counter, it can also help keep benefit plan premiums affordable, today and for future generations to come.
The cost of a drug can differ depending on pharmacy, region, or province. The total cost of a drug can include more than you might think:
Call around to pharmacies to compare the cost of your prescription.
Ask the pharmacist for a three-month supply on maintenance medications; this may help reduce the dispensing fee.
Consider an online pharmacy for maintenance medications- they tend to have less pharmacy mark-up.
Always ask the pharmacy to fill your prescription with the generic drug instead of brand name drug.
