Use the web to reduce drug costs

While watching PBS Newshour Weekend, I was surprised to learn that the retail price for one bottle of a common prescription drug may vary from $14 to $400, depending upon retailer. Prices at well-known major retailers varied from low to high. Supposedly the #1 reason Americans don’t take their medications as prescribed is cost. The program suggested that http://goodrx.com may have a solution to drug price gouging by providing competitive price information to consumers.

I’ve used the Goodrx.com Android app to compare prices. (An iPhone app is available as well.) Its results are impressive but I’ve not yet used it to buy anything. Caveat Emptor.
