Request generic or low-cost drugs. When writing your prescriptions, physicians might not always consider your budget…and will promote the name-brand drugs (which are typically the most expensive.) While generic drugs aren’t always available, it’s still important to stress to your physician that the cost of medication is important to you, and you would prefer the lowest-cost drug available.

Access a mail-order pharmacy. When you pay for your prescriptions at a pharmacy, you are also paying for the pharmacy’s overhead costs. Mail-order pharmacies exclude these additional costs, therefore saving you money on your prescriptions! They’re also a convenient solution if you don’t have time to visit the pharmacy before or after work.
