Handing over your health insurance card to the pharmacist is supposed to be the all-access pass to super prescription savings. You expect the co-pay to be negligible. You expect the savings you were promised. What you may be discovering, however, is that even insurance isn’t softening the blow of many prescription meds.
D. Evans was faced with this harsh reality when she visited her longtime pharmacy of 18 years recently to fill her husband’s prescription. He was scheduled for an operation and the doctor had prescribed a drink mixture to be taken pre-procedure. When the pharmacist rang up the total, it came to $2,000.
“While I sat there on a wooden bench crying, I called the surgeon’s office,” said Evans, who described that awful day at their usual pharmacy.
Three hours later, the surgeon’s office had found a better price at GenScripts, a pharmacy that cuts out the cost-inflating 3rd parties to offer high-quality medication and very low prices. For Evans, the savings was astonishing.
“What was $2,000 was now $25,” she said. “Their pharmacist even sat me down to help comfort me after what I’d just been through! I love this place and the staff too!”
Finding Real Cost Relief
Evans isn’t alone. Due to insurance companies, brokers, and other cost-inflating 3rd parties, prescription medication costs have grown unmanageable for many households.
“My anti-seizure medication is anywhere from $220-$440 (a month)” at big-box pharmacies such as Wal-Mart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens,” said S. Jones.
With insurance not offering the relief expected, consumers need a free-market solution to prescription costs that do not depend on politicians, big drug companies, big insurance companies, or big chain pharmacies to drive down prices.
By paying cash instead of using insurance at GenScripts, patients often see an out of pocket savings that is less than most insurance co-pays or big-box chain pharmacies. Customers can receive as much as 80% savings on their prescriptions at GenScripts.
For Jones, the savings for her anti-seizure medication is obvious and immediate. “GenScripts charges me $31,” she said, in comparison to the $200 to $400-plus at other locations. “I’d be insane to go anywhere else.”
