I see the TV ads all the time about $4 generic drugs at Walmart, but I never thought of buying them without using my Part D drug card. I didn't know we could do that! With the Part D that we have there is no co-pay for generic prescriptions, but the amount the drug company pays still adds up doesn't it. I will look into getting new prescriptions from my doctor and try getting my generics from Walmart. Good idea, if it works. I'm going to try it.
If you don't pay anything for your generic drugs now why would you want to switch and pay $4 a month for them? Maybe I misunderstood your point or didn't read all the posts. Also my local Walmart is line after line waiting for those $4 scripts. I prefer to pay the $14 for a 3 month supply and have it mailed to me. Mine used to be free all year for the generics but this year it switched to free until the donut hole and then the charge started...seemed backwards to me but I have AARP's advanced plan and I intend to drop it in November.....even if I have to pay a few $$ more. I did read in the last AARP magazine I received that in 2010 the donut copays were supposed to be halved with an agreement between Obama and the drug companies but now it seems that is part of the deals cut with the drug companies to get their backing for the proposed health plan so I don't know if it is a done deal or not.
