Saving on Prescription Medication
That Makes Cents: Saving on Prescription Medication
Ask your doctor to write a prescription for a double dose. For example, if you take 50 milligram pills, ask for 100 milligram pills, then just cut them in half.
An average HMO co-pay for non-generic medication is $25, so you'd spend $300 a year. By doubling the dosage and splitting the pills, the savings could be as much as $150 a year.
Not all medication is safe to split. Always talk to your doctor or pharmacist first.
Now that makes cents.
