Different Medications
Ask your medical provider if he or she can prescribe a lower cost medication. Is there a generic brand that might work as well as the name brand, yet cost less? Insurance prescription coverage may be higher for certain drugs. Find out which medications are considered preferred through your insurance and talk with your medical provider about your options.

Patient Assistance Programs
Pharmaceutical companies, state programs, and non-profits might offer free or low-cost medicine through drug assistance programs (PAPs). Look up the manufacturer on the internet and see if there are coupons or discounts. Visit Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America for more information.

Shop & Compare
Different pharmacies and insurance companies may have the same medications or coverage for different prices so be sure to shop around! GoodRx offers a price comparison tool to make your decisions easier.
