Find out how to save money on medicines from the Deputy Editor for Special Projects at Consumer Reports. And share your own strategies with us!

Prescription drugs cost more in the US than in any other country. Prices have been rising far more quickly than the cost of living, and the proportion people must pay out of pocket has also been increasing. As a result, many patients are finding it difficult to afford their medicines. Are you among them? Is there a way you could save money on medicines?

Save Money on Medicines:

Consumer Reports (May 2018) has just run a cover story on how to pay less for your medicines. We speak with the author, Lisa Gill, about some smart ways to lower drug costs. You might not know that many pharmacists must abide by a gag clause that prevents them from volunteering information on how you could get a better price. She describes how it works and how you can get around it.
