Check out drug prices

Recommended Posts

DH was released from hospital yesterday with 3 new prescriptions.  I have already checked out the prices with and without insurance at various pharms and have found ways to save alot of money.  It is not always cheapest to use insurance.  It pays to shop around.  I also have the Doctor write 3 separate prescriptions (instead of 3 on one sheet) which makes it easier to use different pharmacies.

DH and I found that it was to our great advantage to hide my Medicare status!!!!! 

 

But of course, things change without notice so I suppose one has to keep checking....keep checking....  :shrug:

I posted this in the Pinching Pennies Forum..I don't know how it got here and I can't figure out how to move it with this new forum set up.  Grrrr

 

Very true MtnRIder..places like WalMart sell some 3 month maintenance drugs for $10 which is alot less than using your Medicare Part D insurance.

I'm on my phone so I don't know how to move it, I will see if I can. 

 

WM had cheaper prices for DH's meds too. 

 

ETA:  Figured out how to move this thread on my phone. :hapydancsmil:

Publix has some for free.

 

CVS gave me a choice of using insurance for one scrip, meaning $7, or doing without--$2.13!

DH's most $$$$$ drug is $425/month co-pay.  We paid that once so far....and will probably get reimbursed.  The company has options for folks without co-pay insurance.  But of course, you work for that $$$ by filling out forms to qualify and putting up with nasty folks at the counter.  [well....ONE nasty lady at the counter who lied and said he doesn't get that co-pay discount despite getting the card from the company]  :buttercup: 

 

Our whole deal with prescriptions has been a nightmare ....I think it's due to that now-gone doc who never finished writing out his script orders.  :motz_6: Now we've got scripts coming from TWO pharmacies at the same time.  .....I give up!  We bought both of them.  A rare opportunity to get a month ahead on meds vital for his pulmonary embolism.  A month ahead is FAR BETTER THAN DAYS BEHIND ...as it has been running.  So...... :amen: 

 

MtRider  ......yanno?  The world of Western medical health care is one we like to stay FAR.....FAR away from as much as possible!  Sheeesh!  [but vital iffen you DO need it]
