Saving Money with Prescriptions-

The other night on our drive home from some where we were listening to Clark Howard (http://www.clarkhoward.com/) on the radio. He was talking to a caller about saving money on prescriptions and my ears perked up. We are a family that does not have standard health insurance. We use Samaritan Ministries (http://samaritanministries.org/), which is great by the way and if you're interested I'll tell ya more about it! Since we do not have standard health insurance we pay out of pocket for all of our prescriptions, which seem to be ridiculously priced. Sometimes it can be $10 and other times it can be $90 and if you are in need of those prescriptions every month, that sure is a lot of money per month. I always worry when someone is going to get sick, and how much that is going to cost us out of pocket. Clark Howard mentioned on his radio program that you can go to places and get their cost per prescription list. Since I knew Wal-mart offers the $4.00 prescription program, I decided to call them today. The pharmacist was very helpful on the phone and said they offered a list in the pharmacy that can be picked up at anytime. Since I had just come from Wal-mart, I asked if the list was also offered online, and she helped me find it easily on the website. I think this is great advice on saving money for your family and I will be carrying this list with me the next time we go to the doctor to cut down on our prescription prices at the pharmacy counter. Since we are on one income and we also are trying to do better with our monthly budget, this will help us year to year save on our prescription medications.
 Here is the list for you!

-Happy Saving!
