Whether you have a chronic condition like high blood pressure or diabetes that needs expensive medication, unexpected illnesses can still pop up. So how do you avoid breaking the bank?
Opt for a pre-tax flex spending account if your company has one. Shop around local pharmacies for the best prices. And always be clear with your doctor. Ask for generics, if you could get a stronger dose as long as the pill can be split in half. And never be embarassed to ask if they have free samples.
