Terms of Use    

For quick cost cutting on your prescription drugs, try this:

  • Cut your bills in half by buying generic drugs instead of name brands.
  • Buy your prescriptions via mail order through a drugstore chain or your company health plan.
  • Slice your pills.  Sometimes you can save money by asking your doctor to prescribe a double dosage of a drug and then splitting the pills in half.
  • Shop around.  Pharmacies sometimes charge very different prices for the same drugs.  Websites such as wellrx.com provide an easy way to compare prices of the same drug at different stores.
  • Ask for the cash price.  Sometimes paying out of pocket is actually less than the amount charged when run through your insurance.  
  • Look for a discount card or coupon online.  Websites such as goodrx.com can help.
