Posts Tagged ‘Prescription Medication Savings’

A prescription for savings….

costcoI want to write a brief note about a savings tip you may find beneficial. If a serious part of your budget is going towards prescription medicines–and if you are a senior it often is, you may thank me for this heads-up! It is to check the cost of your meds if you switch to having your prescription filled at Costco. Here is just one sample of the savings we recently found on one medication. My wife needs a supply of Metforim every month to control her diabetes, at Walgreens the cost of a month’s supplies $31 without her health insurance–with insurance it costs $25. At Costco the same prescription is $6.99. A three month supply of Metforim at Walgreens costs $75 (without insurance it runs $93,) at Costco the price is $9.99. Quite a savings for the identical medication, at Costco your yearly savings on just this one RX would be $288.

How about that yearly membership at Costco? It doesn’t apply for their pharmacy, just walk right in and go to the pharmacy section. If you have a regular series of meds that you purchase, why not go in and check with them what your savings would be. You may wonder what this has to do with my position of entertainment editor of Easy, with all these savings you might want to buy one of there giant flat screen TVs that they stock. In my next post I will give you some tips on how to ‘Cut the Cable’ and save a ton of money every month on your cable bill, while suffering no loss to your viewing experience.
