You may be able to save up to several hundred dollars a year by checking out two websites that offer coupons for prescription drugs: Optimizerx.com and Internetdrugcoupons.com (Optimizerx requires registration; Internetdrugcoupons may send you to a page that requires registration in order to get the coupon).
While experts warn that a coupon discount probably can’t beat the low price of a generic drug, a coupon may provide significant savings if your doctor has decided a brand-name drug works best for you. But, as always, read the small print—coupons offering rebates can’t be used by those insured through most state and federal programs, including Medicare.
Why? That money is seen as a kickback.
