I have Medicare with Part D "Credible Coverage," which means I have coverage equal to or better than Part D. Mostly much better than (see below, after I make my point).

I was taking a prescription vitamin supplement, which Medicare doesn't cover but my insurance did. Well, my insurance stopped covering it, and last time my mail order pharmacy charged me $87. for 90 days worth. Not totally unaffordable, but I figured I would try to do better. I went to GoodRx.com, and put the medicine's name in their search box with my zip code. It told me that it would give me a coupon for $8. off, and that it would cost $62. at my local CVS and $83. at my local Walgreens, less the coupon. So it did the comparison shopping for me, and then dropped a coupon for better than 10% on top of it! Thought some of you might be interested in this. It only works instead of insurance, not with it.

About the mostly better part. I'm in "the doughnut hole" now. In fact, I'm almost through it. I have some expensive meds. Anyway, my "credible coverage" pays the difference between my initial coverage copays and the copays I'd have in the Coverage Gap. That is a HUGE savings for me, because it is only the end of July, and by the end of August I will most likely be out of the Gap and in the Catastrophic part of the prescription plan.

I have had some luck with Costco mail order pharmacy without using insurance beating my with insurance rates at CVS and Walmart for one of my gereric prescriptions that my insurance still considers tier 3. You don't have to be a member of Costco to use the pharmacy or mail order pharmacy and you can cost compare from home. You may have to sign up with a Costco pharmacy log on before you can shop prices.

I was also going to suggest looking at Costco. In MA, you don't need to be a member to use the pharmacy, eye prescriptions and liquor stores. Not sure if it applies in other states.
