For today’s Reader Q&A, I’m actually hoping to get some tips from all of you — my very smart and savvy readers. A reader wrote in asking for ideas on saving money on her prescriptions medications. While I had one or two suggestions, I figure I’m just scratching the surface. I bet you all have lots of ideas, too!
So, today I’m turning it over to you. Here’s the question:
Since my husband started his own business a few months ago, we have had to switch to a high deductible health insurance plan. On top of the high monthly premiums, we are also struggling with the cost of prescriptions. Unfortunately, I have a monthly medication that I can’t not take, and of course, it is very expensive. I just filled my 90 month supply and got major sticker shock: $700 for 3 months! I order from a mail-order pharmacy, but I’m wondering if there’s a cheaper way to go?
Thanks for any advice you have!
