This may not be new to you, or maybe you're like me and it didn't occur to you that coupons are offered for prescription medications.
A couple of weeks ago, we took Grace to our pediatrician for a check up. The doctor prescribed a medication for Grace that I'd never heard of before, for a condition that I also never heard of. (For Grace's privacy, I won't mention the medication name or condition.)
Wanting to do a little research before getting the prescription filled, I looked at the little white square of paper and was amazed that I could actually read the name of the medication. (It amazes me that the pharmacists can read those things!) I found a website for the medication and was pleasantly surprised to see that there was a coupon for $15 off.
Since we have a prescription plan, I almost didn't print the coupon. I remembered that recently we tried to get a prescription filled for something else a while ago and it wasn't covered at all. So, I printed it anyway. I read the fine print and realized that if there was a co-pay under $15, you'd save the amount of your co-pay or the $15 whichever was less. Great! I thought for sure, we'd get some free medication for Grace.
NOPE, not free. Try, $35 after the $15 was deducted! With our prescription plan, the medicine was $50.
$35 was still a lot of money for us, but still better than the original $50. I was so thankful that I found that coupon. It was a total accident, but I will be sure to look for other coupons when prescription medications are needed.
