Prescription Drug Pricing

Prescription Drug Pricing

I know some of us here read Get Rich Slowly, but for those of you who don't, the author summarizes and links to a very eye-opening article today about shopping around for prescription drugs. I encourage all of you who take medication to make a few phone calls to different places to see if you can get a better deal elsewhere.

Personal story: a friend of mine takes several different expensive asthma meds. His insurance (through his university) only covers prescriptions filled at the school's health center. However, by going to a pharmacy in town where he has to pay the whole cost out of pocket, he's charged only half of what he used to pay at the school pharmacy even with the insurance's reduction in the price! So even if your insurance only covers medication purchased in certain places, it can still pay to shop around!
