Why do prescription drug prices vary?

Prescription drug prices vary by pharmacy location, because different pricing sources are used by varying health insurance companies and discount cards, to establish the price you will pay at the pharmacy counter.

You see, a pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) is usually tied to your health insurance or discount source. That PBM has negotiated the price you pay with the pharmacy you visit. All pharmacies and PBMs follow a unique process to establish their negotiate price. This is why prices vary and why you should always compare drug prices at local pharmacies.

Where is the best place to buy prescriptions online?

Though Rx Saver is not a pharmacy, we can help you find the best place to buy prescriptions online. We pride ourselves on having the lowest prices for prescriptions, and that means mail order too. If you search your medication on Rx Saver, you will see mail order options within our price list. Many people fill medications at their local pharmacy, but if you are prescribed a maintenance drug for blood pressure, diabetes, or anything else, our mail order options may help you lower your costs.

Always compare drug prices at local pharmacies

It’s important you always compare drug prices at local pharmacies, because they vary. Did you know pharmacies across the street from one another can have drastically different prices for the same prescription? It’s true!

What is the cheapest pharmacy to fill prescriptions at?

There’s not really one pharmacy that stands out as the best place to fill your prescriptions. Since prices vary by medication, it’s difficult to say which pharmacy will always have the best price, because that pharmacy may not even exist. It’s for this reason why we recommend always shopping around for your medications. We definitely understand that you can’t run all over town to find the best price for all medications, which is why you may want to find one pharmacy that works best for all of your medications.

Does Rx Saver’s mail order pharmacy work with no insurance?

The short answer? Yes, it does. Rx Saver and its mail order options do not require you to have insurance. Our coupons are accessible to the insured and uninsured alike. Most mail order pharmacies do not require you to have insurance and the one we provide discounts to is no different. You definitely have to have a prescription though!
