Buy in bulk

Who doesn’t want to save a buck or two on their prescriptions? Buying in bulk is one of many ways to save on prescriptions. Ask your doctor for a script for several months’ supply of medications you take consistently. Often, the price for a three-month batch is cheaper than buying it three times over the course of three months. Your health insurance may also offer mail-order services for bulk orders. Not only can you save money, but you’ll also dodge the hassle of monthly visits to the pharmacy. Just note that your insurance company may limit how much medicine you can get at one time.
