Prescriptions can be incredibly expensive, and for many of us they are no longer covered by our insurance plans.  Whether you are on insurance or not, many times prescriptions still end up costing an arm and a leg.

We ran by CVS yesterday to pick up an ointment called in to find out it was $171… so we drove away and left it right there.  My husband thought I was crazy when I told him I didn’t get it, but I know we can get it for around $9… so I’m not about to pay $171!!

Let me put on my Registered Nurse hat for a moment and share some of my tips for cutting your prescription costs.

How to Save on Prescriptions:

Be upfront with your doctor.

Tell them right off that you don’t have prescription coverage.  Their goal is to get you better, and that means having you take the medication they prescribe.  If something is to expensive, many times there are other options they can pick.

Don’t be afraid to ask for free samples and coupons if they have them.

If you get the pharmacy and the prescription is super expensive, it never hurts to call and ask if there is another medication you could try instead.  This was step one for us in saving this weekend:

After hearing the price for my husbands $171 eye cream, I asked the pharmacist if there were other options that might be cheaper (the pharmacist is your friend).  He shared that had the doctor ordered an ointment instead of the cream it would be $50 rather than $171.  He also found that the second medication that was ordered with actually the same as the over the counter hydrocortisone.    To save $121 I’ll gladly call and ask the doctor if we can switch from a cream to an ointment!

Always Call/Search Around

Once you have a prescription you should always call around to see who has it cheaper.  You’ll be surprised the price differences and who is cheaper.  Typically the smaller pharmacies have the best deals, or head to Costco, Sam’s or Walmart.  The worst folks in town are the national pharmacy chains… that $50 ointment at CVS is $9 at Walmart for the same tube (much better than the $171 we started with).

If you want to save the phone calls, use the database at GoodRX to search prices.  While it may be off a little from the actual price I’ve found it to be pretty reliable.
