Why do pharmacies have different prices for the same medication?

Lack of government regulation leads to lack of uniformity. Huge price discrepancies at U.S. pharmacies are a result of the fact that our market is relatively unregulated. Government programs, such as Medicaid and the Veteran’s Health Administration do have cost controls, which means far lower prices in those programs. Those regulations don’t apply to Medicare, the private health insurance market and, of course, the uninsured.

Regardless of your healthcare coverage status, we're here to make sure you get the best prices on meds you need to live your life.
