We don't take many prescriptions, in fact the only one is for DW.
So, we went to Costco Pharmacy to get it renewed. The Pharmacist looked at the renewal and told us that there was now a generic available-exactly the same- and did we want it. Yes of course we did. The price went down from $1.13 per pill to .36 per pill. Very convenient since we had just emptied our HSA entitlement and had to pay this ourselves.
We were very pleased that the pharmacist mentioned this to us as I suspect that they make higher margins on the name brands.
