$4 Generic Discount Drug Programs
The $4 Generics Drug Program lists pharmacy retailers' prescription programs which offer generic medications for a discounted price. Many do not necessarily charge $4 for their generic drugs, with charges ranging from $4-$15 for a 30-day or 90-day supply, but nevertheless it is a common name for this type of program. These programs make it possible for those struggling to pay for the medication to access them.
Some generic drug programs require enrolling as a member and/or paying an annual membership fee while others do not require any membership enrollment at all. Before enrolling into a program, read the fine print.
Here is some good advice from Consumer Reports:
- Make sure you're covered. Many discount drug programs don't include high dosages, and the list of drugs can be limited.
- Ask about restrictions. Some programs are offered only to people without insurance or are for medications that are not covered by insurance. And some are not available in certain states or their prices might be higher.
- Note that some programs carry an enrollment fee, which might make them less of a bargain.
- Check with your independent pharmacy. Some will match those deals when possible.
- Review the discount lists frequently. More generics are likely to be added to the lists as many major drugs, such as Lipitor and Plavix, become available as generics over the next 36 months.
