7 Ways to Cut Rx Drug Costs

Ask your doctor if a cheaper version of your medication—a generic or older drug—would suit you. Also ask about free samples.

Rx assistance programs: Call your state health department or agency on aging, or go to www.benefitscheckup.org to find programs you might qualify for.

Veteran and military benefits: If you are a veteran, call (877) 222-8387, or go to www.va.gov. If you are a military retiree or dependent, including current, widowed or divorced spouse, call (800) 538-9552, or go to www.tricare.osd.mil.

Drug company assistance: Many drugmakers offer free supplies of their own products to Medicare enrollees without drug coverage. Income limits apply. For a free directory, call (800) 762-4636, or go to www.helpingpatients.org.

Rx discount cards: Ask your pharmacist about discounts. For details of drug company cards, go to www.rxassist.org, or call the following numbers: GlaxoSmithKline's Orange Card, (888) 672-6436; Eli Lilly's LillyAnswers, (877) 795-4559; Pfizer's For Living Share Card, (800) 717-6005; or the Together Card, (800) 865-7211, for drugs made by seven companies.

Discount mail order programs: There are many, including AARP's program, at (800) 289-8849 or www.aarppharmacy.com, and Medco Health, at (877) 733-6765 or www.yourxplan.com. Compare prices among several plans at www.destinationrx.com.

Canadian mail order: Two U.S. nonprofits help Americans of any age fill prescriptions from licensed Canadian pharmacies by mail order: The Minnesota Senior Federation at (877) 645-0261, ext. 124, and the United Health Alliance at (866) 633-7482.
