Prescription costs can be a pill (Get it?!!)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Insurance can really stink sometimes. Of course, I only realized this recently since Anthony's new job is the first one he has had that didn't offer great group insurance (one of the benefits of having worked for a hospital or the state up until now). So I am always on the lookout for ways to save on medical expenses that don't involve insurance, because that is good information to have! With the economy the way it is, you never know what could happen to your insurance coverage. With that in mind, I just wanted to remind you guys about the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. For $35 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family included your spouse, dependents under 22 and pets. Individual memberships are only $20! Membership provides savings on more than 8,000 medications, discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies, and discounts when you buy Walgreens brand products and photo services.

If you are interested, there is a list of most medications covered and how much it costs for 30 and 90 day supplies. Anthony sees so many patients that struggle with how much their prescriptions cost, that I think he is going to start suggesting this to his patients as another option for being able to afford their prescriptions. (Isn't he thoughtful?? Once, after coming home from work, he realized that he had prescribed a pretty expensive prescription for a patient who didn't have insurance and he made a note to himself to call them back later to see if they wanted him to prescribe them something different. He's the best!)
