Tips to help you save on prescription drug costs

  • Choose generic when possible.
  • Use a participating retail pharmacy. For the highest level of benefits, use a Providence or Walgreens retail pharmacy. Search the online provider directory to find a participating pharmacy near you.
  • Fill medication taken on a regular, recurring basis for a chronic or long-term health condition (i.e., "maintenance medication") at a preferred retail or mail order pharmacy. You can purchase up to a 90-day supply.
  • Have certain medications prior-authorized.
