How to Save on Prescription Drug Costs
I don’t like to pay full price for anything. Finding ways to save money is almost a second job for me. I am thrilled to partner with ScriptSave® WellRx to bring you this post and help you find ways to save money on prescription drug costs.
As you may know from my previous posts, my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer in July. Managing the costs associated with a chronic disease isn’t always easy, especially when you are living on a fixed income. The disease itself is a strain, then add in all of the associated costs of deductibles, medicine and treatments, it’s exhausting. My mom is lucky to have health insurance coverage, but we need to find ways to help cut back on the high out-of-pocket costs.
Thankfully, I learned a lot of my money saving ways from my mom. She is a pro at saving money. I couldn’t wait to introduce my mom to ScriptSave WellRx to help relieve some of the burden of prescription drug costs. Guess what? She was already using the ScriptSave WellRx app and has been using it faithfully to save money.
Did you know that prescription prices can change each day? I was shocked to find out that prescription drug costs can vary greatly from one pharmacy to the next on a daily basis. When I put my allergy medicine in the ScriptSave WellRx search option, I found my prescription at a hometown pharmacy for $30 less than a retail pharmacy. I was shocked. Then I was ecstatic to be able to use the free ScriptSave WellRx discount card to save money!

What are the benefits?
The most important benefit to me, is knowing that my family can save on prescription drug costs and help relieve some of the burdens they have to bear while dealing with a chronic disease. Every little bit of savings is monies that can be spent on other necessities.
Some participants that use the ScriptSave WellRx program have been known to yield savings of up to 80%. This doesn’t happen every day, but even if it happens once you win! On average, members realize a savings rate of around 44%. Some drugs will see lower discounts and on occasions there will be no discount available.
Remember costs can change daily, so checking for discounts each time you need a refill is important. Even if you save just a small amount of money, it’s worth it. Those pennies add up and turn into dollars.
The ScriptSave WellRx program is also available for pets. You may be able to save 45% and up to 85% on medications for pets too. Your vet can write your pet’s prescription for the human equivalent medicine and you can receive savings by using the ScriptSave WellRX card at your preferred pharmacy.
