Prescription costs are constantly increasing. This can be a significant issue if a person doesn’t have adequate prescription coverage, no prescription coverage or the medication is not covered by your insurance. Another scenario is that the consumer is simply being very aware of just what their insurance plan is being charged. And what about pets? I have often had a need to get my pet medication needs filled at a local pharmacy – those meds are definitely not covered by insurance so any chance I have to save money is definitely welcome…
As an urban public school administrator in a poor district, I try to educate our employees to be informed consumers as much as I possibly can. We have a self funded insurance plan so the cost is the cost – anything they can do to participate in savings goes right to the bottom line.
SearchRX is the perfect way for them to be smart consumers. The same prescription is not going to cost the same amount every where you go. The site includes a search function so you can search for your favorite medications. The results of the search gives a comparison of major retailers and their selling price. The price displayed is the cost AFTER the applicable SearchRx coupon is applied. This cannot be used in conjunction with insurance. Price checking allows you to determine if this is less expensive for you without going through insurance.
For example – I take Advair for my allergies. The comparison image below shows the types of results you can expect to find – different drugs may have very varied results…
In my example – Advair would be as low as $380.97 at Walmart or as high as $394.26 at RiteAid. The difference is $13.29 which is almost a 3.5% difference. That is just a result from one medication. There are many very high cost prescriptions that have minimal insurance coverage such as infertility meds etc… The savings are even greater with these types of meds. With this app/site you can find out the cost of the medication BEFORE you have to pay for it.
You can set your location so it targets your specific pharmacies. As an added feature (bonus) you can sign up for their newsletter and you will receive a free pharmacy savings card.
