Coverage and cost
How can I work with my doctor or pharmacist to lower my prescription drug costs?
Ask your doctor or pharmacist if a lower cost drug option is available. To find out more about alternatives for a prescription drug, search by drug name under the Find Drugs tab. Then click on Similar Products. See if there are over-the-counter alternatives for your prescription drugs. In addition, ask your doctor or pharmacist to review all your current medications:
- You may no longer have a medical need for all your medications
- You may be able to take a lower dose of your medications
- You may be receiving similar medications unintentionally
