If you or a family member take a regular prescription, or even if you’ve had to take a medication short-term, you are probably well aware how expensive prescription medications can get. Even with insurance coverage, my family still pays an out-of-pocket portion of the cost of one of my children’s medication. Simply put…it can really add up each month.
When I heard about the RxSaving Price Transparency Tool powered by America’s Pharmacy™ available at Sam’s Club, I was really interested to share because the idea of saving money on prescriptions is something that hits home for us.
There was a time when my husband changed employers that we had to wait 60 day period to get coverage. That was two months paying the retail price for the three prescriptions one of our children needs. That’s why I’m happy to share information that might help another family – Rx Savings powered by America’s Pharmacy helps families save up to 80% and average of 54% on prescriptions your doctor prescribes you. All you have to do is show your Sam’s Club membership card or bring your America’s Pharmacy Card or coupon (or electronic card) to the pharmacist and that’s it….you’ll get the lowest price available. In fact, many of the generic medications start at just $4. That can possibly add up to some serious savings for the average family.
The RxSavings Price Transparency Tool provides members with discounts available at Sam’s Club, but consumers can also receive discount information everywhere.
ANY Sam’s Club Member can benefit from the access to savings. You can even get savings on pet meds. We consider our pet a member of the family, so I never want cost to get in the way of making sure he has the medications he needs.
Since Sam’s Club can help you save money all-around, it’s no surprise that it would be a go-to for prescriptions. What I loved most about my experience was the attention to detail. A phone call from the pharmacy staff verified information with me and then when I picked up, I really liked the opportunity that was given to me to speak with the pharmacist privately. It’s the little things that make all the difference in patient care and customer service.
When I think about the tips I’ve shared in the past for saving money on prescriptions, it’s amazing that Sam’s Club helps me meet all of them.
- Be a Savvy Shopper – shop around, take advantage of apps and programs that tell you where to get your medicine. Compare prices.
- Switch to Generic. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist. If Generic is an option, see if it will save you some money.
- Ask Questions. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about your medication and costs.
- Seek out Programs – Discount or Assistance. Sam’s Club and America’s Pharmacy has done this for you with the tools that are in place.
Since we pay for our prescriptions up front and end up only being reimbursed a certain %, it DOES make a difference to me what I pay. Sam’s Club has made that easy and made it more affordable. Now, money that would go towards medications can be spent on more time and fun with my kids.
An afternoon of ice-skating, lunch and hot chocolate at our local ice rink is what my girls love. I love that I have the time and savings from shopping at Sam’s Club AND filling our prescriptions there.
I much prefer putting my money towards their interests vs. having to pay so much for prescriptions.
