Prescription medication costs in the United States are out of control. The United States pays more per capita for prescription medications than every other developed nation. U.S. government data suggests that between 150,000 to 320,000 travel abroad (mostly Canada and Mexico) for their prescription medication. Other data puts it at 1.4 million. One example of the difference in prices is with insulin. A patient with diabetes will have to pay $3,700 for a three month supply of insulin. In Mexico the same would cost $600. In Canada, $370. Both countries do not require prescriptions for this life saving medication. So unless we live near Mexico or Canada, our choices are limited. But one way to sharply discount your cost for any medication is to use a discount pharmacy card.
Store Discount Cards Are Not The Same As Discount Pharmacy Cards.
Basically, almost every store that sells prescriptions will offer a store card. But buyer beware. Many store discount cards require a fee, or are not even available in all stores. Several will not only require your personal information, but a debit or credit card. The two most popular drug stores, Walgreens and Rite-aid have a “tier system”, which means you have to spend more to get a bigger discount. But most importantly not one drugstore’s mobile app will compare other prescription prices. This is why getting a pharmacy discount card with an app that will let you compare prescriptions of all the stores in the area is the best way for you to save money.
