For those wanting to keep their health insurance expenses down, generic drugs are the answer.
Using generic drugs is likely one of the smartest moves any health conscious American can make to keep their budgets healthy. Of course if the doctor has insisted on no substitutions, this may be a problem. That doesn’t mean a patient should not ask about viable alternatives, even to brand name drugs.
The price differences are phenomenal. Many doctors don’t stop to think about the price of drugs for the patient; they just hand out the script and leave the room. So check to make sure there isn’t another alternative that would work just as well, if not better, and be less expensive.
