Tips for Getting the Lowest Price on Prescription Drugs

Pharmacies also often charge different prices for the same prescription drugs or run special deals on certain items. Consumers should always look for the best price on medicines. Here are a few tips:

  • When using this card, always shop around to find the pharmacy with the lowest price.  Even if you are using the free prescription discount card, you may be able save even more money by buying your medicine at the pharmacy that charges the lowest price.
  • Always ask the pharmacist for the lowest price available. In some cases, pharmacies may sell your medicine at a price that is even less than what you can get using the prescription discount card.   

  • Ask your doctor about other low-cost options. This could include generics or free samples. Sometimes there are discounts for ordering a 30- or 90-day supply of medication.
