I was given a prescription for Januvia which is for diabetes. It costs $271 for 30 pills. The pharmasist told me to ask the doctor for something less expensive. Luckily I had a coupon from Astra Zenaca for one month free.
Then I found that if you don't have insurance and are a low income single person - I think and it's less than $22,000 a year that qualifies you get your prescriptions free from them. Naturally if it a family the income is higher but still qualifies. I didn't look into it but I believe if you have co-pay insurance you might still get a break on the price. Not free but a break.
I mention this because some of my prescriptions are not generic so they're more than $4 a month.
I didn't know that Astra Zenaca has quite a program for people to get expensive drugs free or a low cost. My dad had one that was $600 a month for 30 pills and he got them no charge. My mom gets hers from her doctor and he has a supply directly from Astra Zenaca. He has the forms and gives her a three month supply right out of his office.
Although they don't advertise this, many of the big pharma's do have a program that gets patients needed prescrips for low to no cost, pending income requirements.
Ask your doctor and if your doctor doesn't know, check with the manufacturer--their website, customer service, etc.
