The average American spend $1,200 per year on prescriptions. One of the most alarming facts about prescriptions is that the price of the exact same product can vary significantly depending on which pharmacy fills your prescription. You might be paying $346 for a prescription that can be purchased for $26 by having your prescription sent to the pharmacy across the street.
We can’t change how the US healthcare system works, but we can help you shop around to find the price of your prescription at various locations near you. You can then ask the prescribing physician to send your subscription to that pharmacy, allowing you to keep the extra money in your own pocket.
- Start typing the name of any prescription, and we’ll automatically fill in the rest of that long complicated name for you.
- We’ll suggest brand name and generic names of the exact same medicine for you, so you can compare their prices and be an informed consumer. You might be able to save money by switching to generic medications.
- Choose different quantities and doses from the dropdown menu to see the prices for a longer supply of medication. You might save money by purchasing a 60-day supply of medication instead of a 30-day supply.
- Tip: Ask your doctor if you can double the dosage and safely split your pills in half. If your doctor prescribes a 20mg pill, it might be possible to get the 40mg pills and cut them in half. The price might only be 20% higher, but your prescription will last twice as long!
