The card has been around for a while and the City has determined that part of the problem with little participation was due to the fact that is has not been promoted enough so this week a new effort will begin.
I did a quick check for the name brand Plavix and it’s still a high ticket item at $170 for a 30 day supply but the good news is there’s some new potential lower cost drugs in the works and then a future generic coming around soon.
I did another comparison which may not be the best example and used a common anti biotic, Cipro. You can see a huge savings just between the name brand and the generic; however in this case I’m better off with the $4.00 offers from Wal Mart or Target and several other stores, so perhaps there are savings there, but I just picked a couple commonly prescribed drugs where a big difference was not seen.
