No this is not an alternative medicine solution. however, it could be a solution that reduces the cost of the prescription drugs that you require. I recently found a great solution, especially for those of you like me that do not have prescription drug coverage. Look into Singlecare. It is free, has no fees, and reduced my drug cost significantly. I need to apply eye drops daily. I called around and the highest cash cost for my prescription was $73.00 per month, and the lowest was $49.00 per month. With the Singlecare Pharmacy savings card my cost was $22.41 (or $7.47 per month) to fill a three-month prescription. Why does a bunch of numbers on a free card, entered into the Pharmacy computer, result in a price that is cheaper than simply a cash price is beyond me??? By the way I have not found an alternate medicine solution for my condition to even try. Note: Singlecare may save you money even if you currently have prescription coverage. Note: Purchasing a 3-month supply saved me 50% over a 1-month supply using Singlecare. Note: I do get an email once an a while regarding their video doctor service (has not been an issue). Note: I only use their service and have no other interest.
