After you enroll in Medicare or change Medicare plans, you could continue to fill your prescriptions in exactly the same way you are doing it now. You could call your doctor, have your prescription called in to your pharmacy, wait to have it filled, and then go to your pharmacy and pay full price, or close to it. 

That’s the old way. But now there is another way called Cost Plus Drugs. It can save you money – often, a lot of it. Plus, it offers you the convenience of getting your prescriptions without ever setting foot in a retail pharmacy. 

About Cost Plug Drugs and How to Get It Working for You

The Cost Plus Drugs Company is the brainchild of a physician named Alex Oshmyansky and Mark Cuban. That’s right, the same Mark Cuban who is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and one of the most famous entrepreneurs in America.

And it’s revolutionary. Cost Plus Drugs buys generic drugs from pharmaceutical companies and sells them directly to consumers. At present, more than 350 different drugs are available through the plan. Plus, the company has announced plans to manufacture some drugs in the future, which could save you even more in in the months and years to come. 

And the idea has caught on. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, 1.4 million people have signed up for Cost Plus Drugs.

And You Can Opt for Cost Plus Drugs to Fill Your Prescriptions While on Medicare

“Prescription drug costs can be a large component of total annual out-of-pocket expenses for a Medicare beneficiary,” says Richard Chan, CoverRight’s Founder & CEO.

“Medication prices can vary widely by plan, geography, and even within the same zip code,” he adds. “With continued healthcare cost inflation in the U.S., it’s becoming ever more important to help consumers save….Our customers can simply order their medication through Cost Plus Drugs if they find that they can save” explained Chan. “Drug program adherence is a critical component of maintaining health and we want our customers to access all available options to help them achieve this” he added.
