Introduction:Here is an extremely helpful list of the top five ways to save money on your prescription medication costs with no insurance. This information can easily save you money and cut down on your prescription costs with every refill.
Many people are paying way too much money these days for their prescription drugs. There simply is no reason for this. It is very easy to save money on your prescription whether it is a new prescription or even just a refill.
Whenever your doctor tells you that you need to start taking a new prescription, be sure to ask questions. Ask about all of the side effects, what it is for, and if you really need to start taking it. Many times, doctors will offer prescriptions that we simply do not need to take or we just do not want to take all of them side effect risks by starting up with any new medication.
If this new prescription is really not necessary for you to take, thank the doctor for their kind suggestion while refusing to take it. This is a great way to save money on your prescription costs whether you have insurance or not.
Always tell your doctor or remind them that you cannot afford the cost of your prescriptions. Doctors always have free samples of the medications that they prescribe. They do not mind at all in giving these free prescription samples away quite freely. They usually only give these free samples to those who they think may need them.
People can always save money on their prescription costs with no insurance. This is an extremely easy thing to do. Always ask your doctor if the prescription being offered to you is a generic medication or not. Buying a generic medication will not only save you money, but it will make a world of difference in cutting down on your prescription medication costs.
Many people often forget to ask their doctors about getting the generic equivalent which works just as well and is way less expensive to purchase. People can always ask their local pharmacist about their prescription drugs as well. It is always wise to ask your local pharmacist what other prescription drugs are also available in this line along with their prices. Any good pharmacist will certainly be happy to help you out with any questions or concerns that you may have.
Another way to easily save money on your prescription costs with no insurance is to use a mail order prescription service for your medications. Many people do not even consider using mail order prescription services, because they do not want to wait for their prescriptions.
Mail order prescription services are quite reputable companies. You can always trust these companies to send your prescriptions right to your home and always send them on time.
Many people have the wrong idea about mail order prescription services. They unknowingly believe that these companies are available only for the elderly, seniors, and those who just cannot get out to their local pharmacies to get their necessary prescriptions filled. This simply is not so. Using a mail order service is an option available for everyone to use, and these companies offer substantial money savings on everyday prescription needs.
One reason that mail order prescription services can offer such great prices on everyday prescriptions is that they most often offer the 90 day supply on prescription medications. This 90 day prescription plan is not only offered from mail order prescription services.
Local pharmacies also offer the 90 day prescription refill plan. It would be wise to check with your local pharmacy to find out how much money you can save on your next prescription by switching to this 90 day plan. You will even be saving money on gas, because you will have less frequent trips to be picking up your medicines.
The last way to mention here in this top five list of ways to save money on your prescription medication costs without insurance is by using the store's price match guarantee policy. Many of the stores will match other store's prices. This is a great service and a great way to save money.
Every time that you go to the store to get your prescription filled or refilled it would be wise to tell whoever takes your order that you would like to take advantage of their price match guarantee. Be sure to also remind the cashier that you are using the price match guarantee to pay for your prescription. This will ensure that you really will be getting the price match guarantee and saving money with every prescription purchase.

Very good savings tips for people on prescription drugs when there is no insurance.I am one of the fortunate people who take no medicine, but I know some people who use your tips and they are helpful.
This is a helpful list! I don't know if other drug stores do this, but the Walgreen chain has a card you purchase for like, $25.00 a year that gives your entire family (up to age 24) significant prescription drug discounts! H5!
We just started using mail order. I can't believe how much we save even with insurance. It is amazing. Nice list.
