With our current national healthcare and economic crisis, now more than ever, finding ways to save money is crucial. Millions of jobs have been lost, more cuts are coming, and health care benefits are in jeopardy. Despite the recent waves of stimulus packages being passed by congress, unfortunately many people did not qualify for the benefits, the stimulus check, or simply have yet to receive their stimulus check. So today’s video is going to review one way to help you save money during this economic crisis, by showing you how to save money on your prescriptions.

Many of you may be familiar with these savings programs, but many people are still unaware that a number of retail pharmacies offer steeply discounted generic prescription medication savings programs which range from popular pharmacies from Walmart, Walgreens, Costco and Sam’s Club. Please see the links below for the lists of meds and for some prices of the generic prescriptions they offer and please watch my video for some explanations about the subtleties of each program.

Always, always, always check these pharmacy websites for updates to what medications are available. Because things always change. For example, CVS used to offer a generic savings program, but eventually got rid of it in recent years.

I hope you found this helpful and if you have other helpful tips for people out there on how to save on prescriptions, please comment in the comment section to share your tips with me and everyone!
