Medicationdiscountcard.com Launches New Online Feature for Comparison Shopping of Prescription Drugs
Date:1/19/2017

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Many patients don't realize that they may be paying over $100 for their medication when a pharmacy just a few blocks away charges only $25 for the same exact prescription.  To alleviate this problem Medicationdiscountcard.com has created a price comparison engine allowing doctors and patients to see exactly how much their medication will cost at most nearby pharmacies.

Comparison Shopping Made Easy

Medicationdiscountcard.com takes all of the hassle out of comparison shopping. After accessing the website online, patients can use a basic search function on the site to access an exhaustive list of prescription prices and coupons available from major pharmacy chains. A search for the drug Cymbalta, for example, generates a list of pricing from between nine pharmacies: ranging from Kroger and Safeway to Walmart and CVS.

Once patients access the specific drug they are looking for in the drug database, a general price comparison list is ready and waiting. At a glance, consumers can compare the prices of their prescription within all the most popular pharmacy chains. Patients can further narrow their search by entering specific ranges: name brand or generic, the amount and dosage of the drug prescribed, and a personal zip code. The zip code search will generate a much more specific list of local pharmacies located near the patient.

Comparison Shopping Advantages Are Huge

A recent study in Consumer Reports found some surprising and shocking facts about prescription drug shoppers. The most alarming: consumers generally don't comparison shop for their prescriptions. If co-pays go up, or insurance companies refuse to pay altogether, most patients surveyed said they pay the price or stop taking the drug.

Prescription drugs are a product, and like all products, sellers compete with each other for customers. Shopping around for the best deals on a specific prescription can save consumers hundreds of dollars a month.

Consumer Reports also noted a few other important facts that consumers should keep in mind.

  • Prices are not set in stone.
  • Prices vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. Up to 10 times as much.
  • Pharmacies don't expect patients to pay these high costs. They expect customers to bring coupons and access discounts.

Most of the discounts offered by Medicationdiscountcard.com cannot be used with a patient's insurance; but comparison shopping is still important. Many times the cost of a generic prescription is lower than a patient's co-pay.

Additional Manufacturer Prescription Drug Discounts

Medicationdiscountcard.com also offers a database that archives manufacturer coupons provided by the pharmaceutical industry.

Medicationdiscountcard.com's savings card is accepted at most major chain pharmacies across the country. The card covers thousands of common prescriptions like: Contrave, Saxenda, Crestor and Xarelto.
