Discount Drug Coupons and Medicare

Knowledge is power. This is why discount drug coupon companies can be helpful to individuals on Medicare and Health Insurance. Comparing the prices of drugs between your Medicare drug plan (Part D) and discount drug companies could save you a lot of money! This is because many drugs can be purchased at a much lower price with one of these discount apps then any insurance co-pay will cost you. It pays to do a little digging to save what often amounts to a significant amount of money!

Please note that these discount drug programs do NOT count towards your health insurance deductible or out of pocket maximums. Please keep that in mind before using them!
