    Can also get cheap medications from drugs-med.com which I've been using for over 20 years.

    Me being reputable is questionable, but Good RX gives me better pricing than insurance about 60% of the time.

    as it is now, my health coverage i get free meds now.

    either via mail order or at the pharmacy.

    even generic meds are high dollar for some people.


    $5.00 drug (if there are still any at the price) at 15% mark up is...75¢., then the $3.00 fee, then $5.00 shipping, for a mere $ 13.75,
    still a high price for many to pay, IF they are on more than one med a day.

    could be a good deal for some, a killer for others.

    All meds and medical services should be transparent so we can shop around. Hospitals charging what ever they want while we are there is just sick! When I was in S Korea I would get prices from the hospitals and pharmacies and make my choices. It was nice.

    Imatinib, an oral chemotherapy medication used to treat cancer (or more specifically, one of the most deadly cancers, leukemia) is incredibly expensive. Gleevec, the brand version, costs around $10,000 per month from major pharmaceutical brands. But it doesn't have to cost a fortune, like GoodRx, a leading online pharmacy has proven with a price tag as low as around $1,500 for the generic drug with a coupon.

    Though now, Cost Plus Drug makes GoodRx look expensive by offering the potentially life or death generic prescription for just $200 a year-without a catch or coupon. That's less than one-eighth the price of GoodRx, and one-sixth of 1% of the brand name's price tag.
