Comparison Shop for Prescription Drugs

Comparison shopping can help stretch healthcare dollars. Here are helpful hints:

• If you pay cash for drugs like Viagra and Propecia, which are not always covered by health plans, check out online prices, which may be more affordable.

• Compare Medicare drug discount card programs online. While one card might offer bargains on one medication, you might do better at an online pharmacy with everyday low prices. Start your Medicare price comparison at and for a limited time get a $30 credit.

• Be sure you do business with a credible retailer. Look for Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS). Administered by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, it sets strict safety, privacy and licensing criteria.

Advised licensed pharmacist Jeff Kimmell: "Legitimate online pharmacies have pharmacists on call and provide special services that can help you save even more."

Different drug discount cards offer different prices on different drugs-and those prices can change every week.
