As a Medicare Insurance Broker, one of the biggest frustrations clients have is the cost of prescription drugs.
Once you’re in a drug plan, it still makes sense to be a good consumer.
Before filling your prescription with your drug plan, ask your pharmacist the cash price for the medication￼.
It’s also a good idea to check out the cost of a medication using the free website good rx.com.
Before filling a brand-name medication, ask your pharmacist if there is a generic alternative that is less expensive and talk to your doctor about that.
Also talk with your pharmacist about getting a higher dosage prescription and breaking it in half if your pharmacist considers it a safe thing to do.
￼ Remember, be a smart consumer about your medication, and if you have questions about Medicare, book a time on my calendar here.
