Selecting a Prescription Drug Plan

Tips that may allow you to reduce your drug expenses:

1. Talk to your health care provider or pharmacist, and ask if generic medicines could save you
money. Generic medicines are the same medicines as their brand name counterparts, but are available at lower cost.

2. Ask your provider or pharmacist if another, less costly, medicine could provide a similar
therapeutic treatment for you.

3. Ask your provider or pharmacist to review all the medicines you are taking to see if you still
need to take all of them. Sometimes, patients remain on a medicine when they no longer need to be, or one medicine may duplicate the treatment of another medicine you are also taking. Do not discontinue any medicine without your health care provider's permission.
