    Medicare Part D is a great option! Thanks to it we were able to cover my mom’s prescriptions, plus the pharmacists over at Walgreens made it even easier with the additional information we needed to get. Lots of booklets as well all over the pharmacy.

    Smart lady, for sure! It’s amazing how much there is to know about care plans, and how little most of us are equipped to advocate for ourselves. It’s always important to learn about things that affect our families, especially with medications and medical costs!

    I’m so glad that walgreens is doing their part to help consumers with rising costs of prescription meds. I work in a nursing home where our corp owns their own pharmacy. My rates are pennies to the $$ which means although I benefit, others are paying an arm and a leg which isn’t fair. Kudos to Walgreens!

    These are great tips!! I have taught undergrad healthcare classes and my favorite part is having students take out their insurance cards to read the fine print!! thanks for making it easier for people and bringing attention to the challenges people face navigating the Medicare–its not easy!!

    I agree no one should have to make the choice between medication and food, it’s just so wrong. I’m glad to hear about this program and hopefully it will help a lot of people.

    That’s exactly what I did – I talked to a Walgreens pharmacist to see what I could do as an uninsured person to save on my prescriptions and I’m not sure what program I’m in, but it’s something and it saves me a ton every month.

    We’ve started using Walgreens for our family’s prescriptions (my daughter has a moderate to severe asthma & and I’ve need a lot of medication to get through this pregnancy) and found that they have tons of ways to help get around the high cost of medications. Even with health insurance, their savings plan often saves me more!

    I’m sure this is very helpful information for those who need it the most! My GF also has Crohns and the cost of the meds is really high … so much so that as a single gal she always considers a company’s medical benefits in great deal when deciding where to work.
