More Tips on Cutting Your Drug Costs
1. Check and compare multiple options - no one source has the lowest cost on all medications, so using multiple sources will likely save you the most. Some sources are limited based on income and lack of insurance coverage, while others have no restrictions.
2. Talk With Your Doctor. Your doctor can easily tell you which prescriptions will more than likely cost you more or less depending on your condition. Remember there always isn't just one way of doing things. Let your doctor know that your prescription prices are too high for your budget and see what he/she can do.
3. Buy In Bulk. Check to see if a larger quantity will result in you obtaining discounted volume prices. Many mail-in-order sources offer 90 day supplies for only 2 monthly co-pays.
4. Find a Patient Assistance Program. Most all drug manufacturers have some sort of patient assistance program for people meeting certain income requirements (some accept family incomes up to $80,000), and some are only for certain diseases. Some exclude people with insurance coverage, while others will help pay for insurance premiums, copays or coinsurance. It pays to spend time searching and comparing these programs.
5. Ask for Free Samples. Ask your pharmacist or doctor if they have or can get any free samples of the prescriptions that you are taking. Some of the time they can get samples from their pharmaceutical sales representative. Remember, it never hurts to ask!
