Save Money with Better Living with GenericsTM
Did you know that in most cases generic drugs are equally effective as brand-name drugs but usually cost far less? Given all you can save by taking generic drugs, we want to invite you to join hundreds of your fellow Retiree RxCare members who appreciate our Better Living with Generics program. How do you get generic drugs? It’s usually easy when you take the following steps:
- Ask your doctor to prescribe generics or write “may substitute” on your prescriptions. “May substitute” means that the pharmacist can substitute the generic equivalent for your prescription at the pharmacy.
- Say “yes” if your pharmacist asks whether you would like the generic equivalent of the brand name medicine your doctor prescribed.
- If there is no generic equivalent for a brand name medicine you are prescribed, ask your doctor if there is a generic alternative available to treat your condition and if it would be right for you. A “generic alternative” is a therapeutic alternative utilizing a generic drug to treat the same condition.
