What should I think about when reviewing the Prescription Drug Program?

As you are considering your options, you may think about the following:

  • Consider Generic Drugs - Generic drugs have the same medical effect as brand-name drugs, but usually cost less. Ask your doctor about generics.
  • Check out the Mail Order program to see if your cost will be more affordable if you purchase a 90 day supply of any maintenance medications you may be taking.
  • Compare Different Drugs - There is evidence-based research (EBR) that helps you compare drugs developed to treat a particular condition; this research also explains what the drugs do and how much they cost. Locate a consumer guide that summarizes and compares evidence about some drugs for many common conditions.
  • Find Discounts - Just like shopping for clothes or food, you can research and shop for medication discounts.
