Are your medical costs bleeding you dry? Given the price of some brand-name drugs, it’s worth your while to consider generic drugs. These drugs are generally less expensive than their brand-name counterparts, and usually provide the same quality and standard.

Take action:


Here’s what to ask your doctor and/or pharmacist: Are generics available for any of my medications? Are generics the best choice for my condition? Are there any risks if I change from my current branded drug to a generic equivalent? Are there any concerns about side effects with a generic? How much will I save if I switch to a generic?

Generics – all your questions answered
