Check out these helpful prescriptions tips:

If your prescription isn’t covered by your health insurance company, tell your health care provider that your prescription is expensive and ask if there is an alternative prescription or a generic version.

Check to see if your health insurance company covers this prescription in their formulary. A formulary is a list of drugs/prescriptions that your health insurance company will help pay for.

Use a drug/prescription discount card to help pay for the cost of your prescription.
