Generic Drugs and Low-Cost Prescriptions

Free or Low-Cost Prescription medications are always appealing, whether you have health insurance or not. There's no sense in paying any more for a drug you need than is necessary. It's one great strategy for saving money on the drugs you need. Prescription medications can be pricey, especially if you’re juggling several prescriptions at the same time. Buying generic prescription medications can be one way to save money. Generic prescriptions have the same active ingredients as the brand-name drugs they’re based on, but cost about 20 percent to 70 percent less, according to estimates from the Food and Drug Administration.

If you want to make sure you’re getting the best Low-Cost Prescriptions when possible, talk to your doctor and pharmacist. You can ask your doctor to write a prescription allowing a generic drug product when it’s appropriate. A common misbelief is that generic drugs take longer to work or are less effective. The FDA requires that generic drugs work as fast and as effectively as the original brand-name products.

Here are a few questions that are important to ask your healthcare provider regarding medications:

  • What is the name of the medication and what is it supposed to do?
  • How and when do I take it, and when do I stop taking it?
  • What foods, drinks or other medications should I avoid while taking this medication?
  • Should it be taken with food or on an empty stomach?
  • Is it safe to drink alcohol while on this medication?
  • What are the side effects, and what should I do if they occur?
  • Is a Patient Package Insert for the medication available?

Insurance Benefits In State Based Programs

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for persons aged sixty-five and older which is composed of multiple parts: Medicare Part A, Part B, Part C and Part D. Medicaid is a state run, health insurance program for low income and disabled individuals. Program participants are usually required to make small co-payments for their medications.
