5 WAYS TO SAVE MONEY ON YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS
Updated: Jul 2, 2022
No patient should ever leave a pharmacy without their medication due to outrageously overpriced drugs. With our business model, we price our generic drugs based on what it costs us to acquire them. Whereas, most chain pharmacies price their generics off of what the brand version costs, even if it only cost them pennies to acquire the generic!
Your medications shouldn't break the bank. We understand this - which is why we've put together these five additional ways we can save you money.
If your condition is stable and you are on a maintenance medication, you can usually lower the cost-per-dose significantly by purchasing several months at once. Also makes for fewer trips to the pharmacy. This can reduce your cost-per-dose by 33%.
Split to Save
Some maintenance medications can often times use pill splitters to cut the pill in half, therefore reducing the cost-per-dose. If your dose is 50mg, ask for a prescription for 100mg tablets and cut them in half. This can reduce your cost-per-dose by as much as 60% or more. ** Some pills have coatings and should not be split. Please check with your pharmacist to see if pill splitting is a good option for you.
Ask your doctor for a lower-cost alternative for the same condition. A registered pharmacist at GenScripts will assist you with this process. The savings could be up to 80%.
Always Shop Around Prescription costs vary greatly from pharmacy to pharmacy. Shop around! So many of our customers are glad they made that phone call to GenScripts for a price check.
Generic Medicines Always ask your pharmacist to dispense the ‘generic’, if available. The price of generics can vary widely from pharmacy to pharmacy.
