How to Find Cheaper Prescription Drugs In Your Neighborhood

Have you ever experienced sticker shock when picking up a prescription at the pharmacy?Well, here’s something even more shocking: That drugstore could be charging you hundreds more than a pharmacy down the street for that same medication, according to a new study.In the report, published this month by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) Education Fund, researchers called more than 250 pharmacies across 11 states to check the cash price of 12 common drugs.

 

 

 

They found that the price of these medications varied significantly, with large pharmacies charging between 8 percent and 840 percent more than small, independent pharmacies for eight of the surveyed drugs.“People are not aware that they can get their medication for less at another pharmacy,” said Dr. Amy Compton-Phillips, executive vice president and chief clinical officer at Providence Health & Services.
