Wal-Mart & Costco Informative - Discount prescription drugs
Not sure how many folks already know this, but I thought I would post a review.
Last week our doctor recommended we check out Wal-mart or Costco for our prescription. The pills we needed ran about $100 for a dozen or so at Walgreens. Our doctor recommended we try Walmart since they can buy in much larger bulk volume, and hence give a better discount.
They were right! We ended up getting the pills we needed for about $30! A savings of $70!
For us, we are on a HSA health plan, which basically means most of our medical expenses are out of pocket, but tax deductible. So this is a huge deal for us to save this kind of money.
You won't find me filling my prescriptions at Walgreens anymore!
One more note: Our doctor also said that at Costo, you do not need a membership card to use their Pharmacy, so you can go in and take advantage of the savings without signing up and paying membership dues. Not sure if this is true, but worth checking out...
