Be An Informed Consumer When Purchasing Drugs, Tests Or Treatments

Next » « Previous


If your insurer has a formulary listing approved drugs, ask for drugs that are on the formulary. If there are different tiers of payments depending on whether the drug is branded or generic, ask if an alternative that will cost you less money is available.

When purchasing drugs, balance cost with the other factors that are important to you. To learn more, see: How To Save Money When Buying Or Using Drugs

When a doctor suggests a test or treatment, check around for a balance of the lowest price and quality. While test facilities may not be as used to being asked about price, that should not stop you from becoming an informed consumer.
