Default Prescription Savings

Well let's try it this way!!!!!!
To stretch the dollars allowed before going into the part D donut hole we do the following:

for those Rx where there is a generic switch and buy at Walmart paying the cash price (this does not go against Part D)

ask your physician about doubling the dose (like from 20 to 40 mg) then cutting the pills in half....many meds allow this and the savings is substantial.

the remaining challenge is the latest and greatest Rx deemed a necessity by one's physician; these are usually very high priced (thank you US Pharmaceuticals) various providers seems to be the only alternative.

Are there any other Rx cost saving possibilities to consider???

I just posted the following on the 'Ambien' thread, then noticed this thread and felt it's worth repeating:

A big thing has been made about Wal-Mart offering generic prescriptions at $4 each. What's NOT publicized is that they have a specific list of generics that they cover at $4. That is, it's not all generics! Before you drop off a prescription for a generic at a Wal-Mart pharmacy, check to be sure it's one that's covered in their $4 list....
