There is always room to save money in the prescription drug department where non-generic medicines can really put a dent in your budget or worse in some cases. Walgreens is now offering their Walgreens Prescription Savings Club which allows members to save with discounts off of prescriptions filled at the Walgreens pharmacy.
I did some test examples of some common prescriptions, like Proair which is used periodically for Asthma attacks for example.
On the Walgreens drug pricing page you can compare the prices of various drugs and it shows you what the price would be without and with the prescription plan. For PROAIR the price is around $6 less and if you fill it 3 times per year it would save you $22.80 for this single prescription.
Note, that the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club costs only $10 per year for families or $5 per year for individuals. So by filling just 1 or 2 prescriptions the plan pays for itself, in most cases within the first month of joining the plan.
Here is something else, not only do you cover your spouse and kids, but pet prescriptions are covered by the plan as well. If you have a sick pet or a pet that needs prescription medication this plan can save you quite a bit of money. Even if you have group based health insurance from a company you may not have prescription coverage for pets, so this could be worth joining.
More than 8,000 brand name and generic drugs are covered by the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club and you can start saving on your next refill or new prescription fill by joining today.
