Per capita prescription drug spending in the United States exceeds that in all other countries, largely driven by brand-name drug prices that have been increasing in recent years at rates far beyond the consumer price index. While there are ways of saving when it comes to prescription drugs, it can be complicated and overwhelming for most.  Often, people choose to do without a medication due to the high cost, even when insured.  Join Jessica Daly and discover online resources designed to locate lower prescription prices for the patrons you serve.
