Believe it or not, you can save BIG bucks at the drugstore around the corner (some prescription, some generic and some of both, depending upon the pharmacy) if you just do a little homework…
Costco Member Prescription Program — offers a discount on all branded and generic prescription medications. Members (and their dependents) who have no prescription drug coverage available are eligible to join. http://www.envisionrx.com/costco/cmpp.aspx
Walmart and Sam’s Club offer you ”special negotiated pricing on prescription drugs” with their PatientAssistance.com Prescription Drug Program. (Sounds kind of fishy to me.) http://www.patientassistance.com/wmt.html
And the RxSavingsPlus is a free drug/prescription discount card, to help lower the price for medication. It can be used at CVS Pharmacy, Target, Rite Aid and 60,000 participating pharmacies nationwide. And offers an average of 20% off the retail price of drugs. (Kind of skimpy, but one-stop shopping.) http://www.rxsavingsplus.com/
