GoodRx is an excellent app you can use to check the costs of prescriptions before you leave the doctor’s office. You can ask for generic or lower-cost medications while you’re still with your doctor if you find any using the app. All you need to do is put in your zip code or location and the price and pharmacy will show up.
Make sure you know what your Part D insurance pays first and if your medication is a costly drug. There may be a coupon that you can give to the pharmacist.

You don’t have to when it comes to coupons.
