Do you want to pay less for your medicine co-pays? Who doesn’t?! A recent JAMA article (see link below) looked at 9.5 million medication claims and found that nearly 23% of patients paid more through their insurance co-pays than the cost of those medications to insurers or to the pharmacy.
I urge you to do some research on the cost of your prescription with AND without “running it through” your insurance plan. My family member recently had knee surgery and I picked up the prescriptions and saved $15 on one prescription by using the GoodRx app and not using my insurance co-pay for that medication.
