We all complain about the high prices of prscription drugs these days, especially if you are a senior taking multiple meds. So what can you do to save some time and money? Heres a few suggestions-
First, develop a good relationship with your pharmacist, and shop at a preferred pharmacy for your part D coverage, or use mail order. Remember, you can request a 90 day supply for either resource and most plans will give a you a discount for doing that. Make sure your pharmacy will price match other retail sources. A terrific online resource is Goodrx.com. Many times you can find a coupon that will make for great savings at a local store. Using generics instead of name brands when available can save a bundle. Check with your doctor to make sure you are not taking unnecessary meds, or if there could be drug interactions with the ones prescribed. And of course brokers who assist clients with Medicare Prescription drug plan s (like LJR Insurance Solutions) will be happy to check your coverage at the appropriate times (like the open enrollment periods) to make sure you have the best plan in place!
