AARP'S NEWS YOU CAN USE
Are you paying the lowest best price for your prescriptions? Do you think that you can get your prescription drugs cheaper? You may be right. Many people do not realize that different pharmacies charge different prices for the exact same drug. Thanks in part to AARP you can now easily compare prescription drug prices right from your own home for free using the NJ Prescription Drug Retail Price Registry.
The Registry compiles a list of the 150 most frequently prescribed drugs and what they cost at pharmacies across New Jersey. You can easily use the Registry's toll-free number or the website to find out what your drugs cost at local pharmacies before you buy them. All you need is the name of each medication, the dosage and your zip code. Instead of bouncing around from pharmacy to pharmacy looking for the cheapest price, you can go to one place and compare prices. The Registry can help you save both time and money and who doesn't want that?
