Prescription drug plans offer substantial savings in the purchase of prescription drugs. This sort of plan is especially necessary for people who take many types of prescription drugs on a daily basis. You will have to make monthly payments to maintain membership in a prescription plan, but you will save an exceptional amount of money in discounts when you purchase the prescription drugs.

Finding Prescription Drug Plans

You can find prescription drug plans through a recommendation or with careful research. Your doctor may be able to recommend an appropriate plan for you. You can also investigate the differences in rates and benefits of many plans on the internet, or by calling insurance companies for information.

Prescription drug plans are offered through a large network of pharmacies and major chains. You will save an average of 20% on generic or brand name drugs from most pharmacies. Network pharmacies can offer up to 30% in prescription drug savings.

Some health plans offer a mail order service for additional saving. You can save up to 45% on prescription drugs by ordering them through this service. The only drawback is the time it takes for the products to arrive in the mail.
