Best Bargains on Prescriptions!

Many generic drugs cost very little money to fill a presciption. In some instances the cost of the prescription is less than the generic co-payment for your insurance.  There are several pharmacies that provide low cost generic drugs for less than your medical insurance generic prescription co-payment.   In an effort to try to make sure our clients are getting the best deal for their dollars, we have decided to put a list toghether to help you determine if your prescription can be filled for less money.  If your prescription costs less than your co-payment, you should not be charged more than the prescription cost.  For example, if penicillin cost $7 and your co-payment is $10, you should only be charged $7.  The list of medication from these pharmacies is limited to generic medication and not the more expensive brand names.   You may find by using one of these websites that there is a generic equivalent to the brand name drug you are currently taking. To help your dollar go farther, please shop for the best deal for your needs.

 Please note, not all generic drugs are on the pharmacies dispensing list; however, if the drug is on the list you can save money by using one of the pharmacies identified.
