Post disclaimer

The cost of rising healthcare is a huge concern for many these days, especially if you have kids at home.

Have you ever run into problems with your families’ prescription costs being higher than expected?

 

Prescription savings with LowestMed

 

I was recently introduced to an app called LowestMed that compares prescription prices in an area. It’s a free, anonymous and user-friendly service that helps families find medication discounts at nearby pharmacies.

Downloading the LowestMed app is easy.

Here’s how you can find discounted prices on prescriptions and over-the-counter medications…

First, type the name of a prescription, or over-the-counter drug, enter a zip code, or turn on the location option, and select search.

The location switch only uses your phone’s GPS to find the nearest pharmacies – all searches will remain anonymous.

Second, enter the prescription’s quantity.

For example, the doctor may have prescribed 30 pills of Sertraline.

After entering the amount, select the prescription’s dosage.

Finally, select the discounted price and it will show you where the prescription is available.

Handy, right?

This app has saved more than just a few families money on their prescriptions whether they’ve had insurance or not.

Many prescription drugs can be expensive, even with insurance, and sometimes non-generics may not even be covered.

LowestMed also has discounts for some over-the-counter medications.LowestMed

The LowestMed app is free and available on iPhone, Android and Windows phone devices. For more information about how to save on prescription and over-the-counter medications with LowestMed, visit www.lowestmed.com or download the app!

    This is one great app, I drive so much each day, it’s not out of my way to go somewhere new to save money. I’d use this one for sure!

  2. 2

    fortunately we have prescription coverage so I don’t have to worry about this. I’ve had to use a service like this for our dog though

  3. 3

    That is good to know. I have great insurance, so I never worry about paying too much.

  4. 4

    huh… that’s pretty nifty. i dont pay much for prescriptions but i think this is something my sister could use.

  5. 5

    That is a really neat idea! With a family of 5, someone always has a script that needs filling. This could save us money.

  6. 6

    This looks great,Not possible to use this over here but it is a great idea.

  7. 7

    That app rocks with my family taking so many prescriptions this would be awesome for us.

  8. 9

    That is a really handy app! Currently, we only have one family member with a prescription, but I do think this would be really beneficial for those with multiples.

  9. 10

    What a great app. All of our parents take tons of meds so this would come in handy for sure!

  10. 12

    I just sent this link to my mother in law. This is fantastic!

  11. 13

    Thankfully we currently have zero prescriptions! I know it would save us money though if we had!

  12. 14

    Subscriptions can get EXPENSIVE. That’s a great tool to have to keep the cost down :)

  13. 15

    I might have to check into this. My insurance coverage is going to be ending soon.

  14. 16

    That looks like a great service. I think its stuff like this that makes me happy I choose to go to the military. I am a veteran now and don’t pay for prescriptions and my son is covered under his dads military insurance so we don’t pay more than $8 for a prescription.

  15. 17

    I would totally use this app to price compare! This is so nifty!

  16. 18

    What a neat app! Thankfully all of my medical expenses are covered through my job so I don’t pay much on my prescriptions.

  17. 19

    That sounds like a great app. Would be so helpful for folks.

  18. 20

    wow – thats a cool app. When winter colds and ear infections strike, I’ll have to download this.

  19. 21

    This is such a great app! It makes so much sense and would be extremely helpful if you had little ones.

  20. 22

    Wow, this looks like a great app to check out. Saving money on prescriptions is HUGE.

  21. 23

    Wow. Sounds like a really neat app. I can always use a good savings.

  22. 24

    Now that looks like a great app! We are lucky here unless you are private all prescriptions cost the same price per item. x

    I know quite a few people that this would be great for. I will definitely share this with them so they can check it out.

  24. 26

    Anything that helps my family save money is important! I am loving all these new apps lately!

  25. 27

    I like to price compare, so this would save time calling around! Thanks for sharing.

  26. 28

    This is a great app. I need to get this. My health insurance years ago had a program where you could online an search, but this is much easier!

  27. 29

    I am going to check this app out. I go to a place that helps people who are on low income and they give out a huge discount on meds so my meds are only 30 dollars. I also go to Target and or Wallmart use their 4 dollar generic or 8 dollar generic I make sure that what ever med the dr prescribes is on that list and usually the dr can find something that will work. The rest medicade covers for I discovered that if you get your doctor to do monthly scripts you can get them covered instead of paying for the refills medicade will cover for emergency meds. This app will help for meds that are not covered under insurance or the 4 dollar generics. great find thanks so much

    What a helpful app! I’ve never heard of it, but I’m definitely downloading it. Thanks for sharing.

  29. 31

    That looks like a great app for sure. We are all very healthy (thank you, Lord!), but LowestMed would definitely come in handy during the hard times. Thank you, my dear!

  30. 32

    What a great app. I think this is brilliant and I want to get this now!

  31. 33

    I can’t believe I never knew about this. It’s going to save me tons!

  32. 34

    My oldest son could really use this. I think it will come in real handy and save him some money. Thanks for the info.

  33. 35

    This is nice to have! :) I am all for anything that has a chance to save money.

  34. 36

    I was skeptical, but LowestMed saved me money on my husband’s antibiotic. We have insurance, but it’s worthwhile to use LowestMed’s drug search tool anyway. Sometimes it’s even cheaper than your insurance price! So glad we have this now. Why ever pay full price again?!

  35. 37

    This is a great thing to know about. Prescriptions can really vary so much from place to place!

  36. 38

    This is a great app. I would use it for the some of our prescriptions. We don’t really have any regular ones that aren’t 100% covered.
