Americans overpay on nearly 25 percent of their pharmacy prescriptions, a new University of Southern California study reveals. In most cases, it would have been cheaper for the consumers to buy the drug without using insurance. JJ’s Prescription Specialties can help you find the right answers. It’s a national problem that personalized service can help you avoid. “More and more patients are able to find prescriptions less expensive if they don’t use insurance than if they do,” said Doug Hoey, who leads the National Community Pharmacists Association. The study lists the drugs with the most frequent overpayments: zolpidem tartrate (for insomnia), amlodipine besylate (for high blood pressure and chest pain) and prednisone (a steroid). In a six-month sample, USC researchers estimated $135 million in overpayments. Investigate TV reports that U.S. consumers and the government pay more for their medications than any other country.
