Savings Day – Save on Prescription Meds
Trying to save money on prescriptions?
According to Healthline, Americans spent a whopping $350 billion on prescription drugs in 2020. Here are some ways to reduce your cost. Check prices at different places. Include independent local pharmacies. RX Saver is a website and mobile app that gives current prices at pharmacies in your area. It shows their preferred companies. So check the “see more” button for a broader list. Opt for generics. They’re much less expensive than name-brands. The Food and Drug Administration says that an FDA-approved generic medicine works in the same way and gives the same clinical benefit. ScriptCo is an online company that sells generic drugs. Their average customers save $1000 a year. It’s a membership model and does not accept insurance. Good RX is another option.
Do you take medicines on a regular basis? Consider purchasing in bulk or through a mail-order pharmacy. This reduces your total cost of copays. Ask your health insurance provider to refer you to a mail-order pharmacy that’s included in your coverage, and talk with your doctor. There may be alternative treatments available in your budget. They can provide samples and coupons, or possibly prescribe lower-cost meds that will treat your problem. Check into over-the-counters and natural treatments. Diligent spending for prescriptions will impact your ability to save money. Work hard at finding the best prices to stretch the dollars the Lord provides.
