Also check with disease related associations such as the American Cancer Society www.cancer.org/?utm_source=Everyday+Cheapskate <http://www.cancer.org/?utm_source=Everyday+Cheapskate&utm_campaign=340805d3 70-&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_3eccb93339-340805d370-67655377> &utm_campaign=340805d370-&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_3eccb93339-340805d370- 67655377 or the American Diabetes Association diabetes.org/?utm_source=Everyday%20Cheapskate&utm_campaign=340805d37 0-&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_3eccb93339-340805d370-67655377 for help in locating less expensive options that relate to those diagnoses. 5. BIG BOX STORE PROGRAMS. Many discount store chains like Walmart, Publix, Target, Meijer and Costco offer deeply discounted generic medicines for $4 to $10. Some medicines, like antibiotics or pre-natal vitamins are offered free at some of these stores. Costco’s assistance is available for members only and it is fantastic-well worth the price of membership if you do not already have prescription drug insurance coverage. 6. AARP DISCOUNTS. If you’re eligible (age 50 or older), look into joining AARP as their members receive many discounts including mail-order pharmacy discounts through reputable distributors. 7. BUY IN BULK. Certain medications (cholesterol statins for example) are often available for a greatly discounted price in a 90-day supply. You may be required to order by mail order to get that price. It’s sure worth looking into. From Mary Hunt’s Everyday Cheapskate, July 10, 2015. Note from Dan: I have checked all the links and recommendations and all still applies today. ]]>
