Save Money On Prescriptions With LowestMed.com

Prices of prescription drugs vary from one pharmacy to the next. Consumer Reports market research found a 26% price variation between pharmacies on the same drug. It's not easy to shop around when filling your prescriptions. Website Lowestmed.com has come out with a solution to help you quickly and easily compare the prices of prescription drugs at many locations in your area.

Lowestmed.com has three ways to access its comparison data base. Simply go online to Lowestmed.com and click on the search button. Enter the name of the drug you want to find out the price for. Also enter in the zip code of the area where you want to shop. You can search as far as 30 miles away or narrow it down to a 10 mile radius. After you press the search button you select what milligram strength and either the 30 or 90 day amount.

How to use the website on your desktop computer.

As a test I entered Lipitor 10 mg. I got 8 results back with a price range between $118.00 to $123.00. It listed Atorvastatin as an alternate drug and displayed a price range between $63.00 and $107.00. The stores where to purchase the prescription and a map to them were part of the results. When you go to the pharmacy just present the card and you will be charged the price listed on the website.

How to use it on your phone.

You don't have to be in front of your computer to use Lowestmeds.com. There also is an iPhone and Android phone app. Or you can just use your web browser on your phone to search while you are out of the house.

Open the app and enter the drug and milligram strength written on your prescription. Search for the lowest price and tap the discount card button. Your ID#, Group#, and Bin# will appear. Just show it to your pharmacist to get the discounted price. You don't have to use the member card because the info will be on your phone screen,
