At your last appointment, your doctor recommended a new prescription medication. But before you pick it up, you’d like to know if you can save money.
Prescription drug prices can vary based on three things:
There’s a quick way to find out if your medication is covered — and if you could pay less for it — by using the CVS Caremark® Drug Cost & Coverage tool.
Visit caremark.com to sign up or log in to your account.
Under Plan & Benefits, select the Check Drug Cost & Coverage Tool. Decide whether you’d like to find out the price of a new drug, price a past search or price a previously filled prescription.
You’ll see results that list prices for the brand name medication, the generic medication and therapeutic alternatives. If a price is not listed, it means the drug isn’t covered. If you’d like to save money on your prescription costs,
look for the “best value” option on your list.
Find out if there’s a price difference between getting your prescription mailed or picking it up from the pharmacy. You can also compare costs at different pharmacies in your network.
You can show this information to your doctor, who will help you make the best medication decision for your health and budget.
