As I hang up from calling in the refills for our prescriptions, I realized that I’ve worked HARD to get the lowest price possible on the medicine’s that we need. With prescription costs skyrocketing and incomes plunging, it is even MORE important to do a little price matching on your own.
More and more pharmacies are PRICE MATCHING their competitors prices. By letting your fingers do the walking (either via telephone or online), you should easily be able to find the prices of your same drugs at both online and neighborhood pharmacies.
There are even websites set up by the health departments of some states. Here in Florida we have http://www.myfloridarx.com/ that compares the prices at various drugstores instate. Larger pharmacies like those in Target, WalMart, Sav-On, Osco and other networks regularly offer this price matching program. If you can’t find one nearby – Drugstore.com will match prices on a 90-day supply of your meds.
