Additional Tips:

  • GoodRX and SingleCare

    • These free services offer discounts on prescription medications. They work by negotiating lower prices with pharmacies, and you can use them even if you have insurance!

    • Compare drug prices at different pharmacies using their online tools.

  • Generic versus name-brand medications: Generic medications typically cost 80-85% less than brand names! This can be a huge difference, especially for long-term medications. Generics have the same active ingredients as brand names and deliver the same effects. They’re FDA-approved, so you can trust their safety and effectiveness. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about whether generic versions are available for your prescriptions.
  • 90-Day Supply: Ask if a 90-day supply of your medication(s) will lower the average cost per pill versus a 30-day supply.
