If you're like me you live and breathe prescription drugs, both brand and generic, how they are priced and how much you pay for them at your pharmacy. I've been involved with trying to decrypt and understand trends and policy in this industry for the past 3 years now and some days I feel like I'm no closer to understanding the logic behind the scenes. I've gone from optimistic that I was starting to get a handle on it, to pessimistic, to disappointed, to downright frustrated, to (where I am today) utterly confused!
I guess I've come to the conclusion that I'll never fully figure it out. But I'm signed up for the ride to see if I can find the best way to save money on prescription drugs.
That's the gist of this blog. To inform (you the consumer), uncover (the latest news and how it affects drug pricing), and explain (to the best of my ability) the how/why/where/when of all the latest news and scuttlebutt.
At the same time, we hope you will participate and tell us about what you have tired, hear of, etc. What worked, what didn't, and why?
Together we'll find new ways to save more, on more drugs, in more locations across the U.S.
