Overview

The first easy-to-use reference guide to saving 50% or more on the 250 most commonly prescribed medications in the United States.

Over 40 million Americans lack health insurance. Another 40 million Americans are insured by Medicare and do not have prescription medications as a covered benefit. The 50 million covered by Medicaid are threatened by reduced benefits and limited formulary coverage. Even the 74 million Baby Boomers with health insurance are impacted, as pharmaceutical companies pass their costs on in the form of higher co-pays and insurance premiums. We all are affected by the problem of rising prescription drug costs.

Drugs for Less is the answer to the problem. Empowering consumers with needed information, the book outlines seven simple strategies to reduce rising pharmaceutical prices. Here, for example, are tips on how to ensure that drugs you buy online are safe, guidelines on how to slice medications, and information on which generic drugs are more effective than the expensive brand-name versions. Most importantly, the book includes an extensive directory of the 250 most commonly prescribed medications with specific information on how to save money on that drug.

Making sense of the convoluted system of pricing drugs and showing you how to beat it, Drugs for Less is the best investment you can make in your health.
