We at Medtipster have been monitoring the discounted generic programs offered by many of the retail chains for years now. Of course we have, it’s our business. Kroger, Target, Walmart, etc… offer $4.00 30 day supplies and $10.00 90 day supplies… Take it from a “lifer” in the Rx business, THAT’S AN AMAZING PROGRAM! We have several large employers in North Carolina that have instituted managed Rx plans on top of their current PBM / Rx program in an attempt to steer their folks to low cost generics. For more information, please contact us. We are huge fans of you BCBSNC (Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina) & would love to work with you!

Now the trend appears to be to offer FREE prescriptions. REALLY! We’re all in! Meijers in the midwest has been doing this for years and is extremely succesful. Now Stater Bros. & Albertsons are getting in the game. Kudos to you! Our goal is to get prescriptions in the hands of consumers that need them and at the right price. Sounds like that meets our criteria.

Trends – One Not To Be Followed

June 02, 2009 By: PharmaSueAnn Category: Medicine Advice, Medtipster

The economic climate in our country is something many of us have never seen.
Recent surveys say that 40 million adults are not filling their prescriptions and another 13 million are stretching their medication supplies by skipping doses. This is a trend I do not want you to follow.

As a pharmacist I am proud to say that my profession has been among the top 3 most trusted professions for the past 27 years. Kudos to my colleagues. This does not come easily, we prove this every day by helping you choose and use medications correctly and safely. Today there are many generic drugs that are suitable ‚Äútherapeutic alternatives‚ÄĚ to the newer more expensive drugs. Let us help you navigate through this.
