Four tips to get the most from the Drug Cost Calculator
- Log on to get the most accurate information. The cost of your prescriptions is based on your insurance benefits, so you’ll get the most accurate information by logging in.
Pay attention to quantity. Sometimes it’s a better value to fill a 90-day supply of your medicine instead of a 30-day supply. For example, many HealthPartners members can get a three-month supply for two copays by filling their prescriptions through the Mail Order Pharmacy.
Look at the fourth column to see how much medicine you’re getting, and look at the fifth column to see the price.
- Consider using a generic version of your brand-name medicine. Many generic medicines offer the same benefits as the brand-name medicines. They are just as safe and effective, but they cost considerably less. Click the black button that says, “View most commonly dispensed similar drugs,” to see if there are comparable medicines you can try.
Compare costs at your neighborhood pharmacies. Do you always use the same pharmacy? You can search for other pharmacies to see how the costs compare.
Selecting “Change” in the pharmacy column lets you search for additional pharmacies. Use this feature to compare prices at numerous pharmacies.
You can also choose whether you want to search for pharmacies that offer 30-day supplies or 90-day supplies. Pharmacies marked with an R offer 30-day supplies; pharmacies marked with a 90 offer 90-day supplies.
