Walgreens Feedback - Unreasonable cash price for prescription drug.

Unreasonable cash price for prescription drug.


My cash price for a 30 day supply of Temazepam (RX 1179948-04054) was $18.39. However, when using my health provider (United Health Care) the price was $6.00 co-pay for me and my provider paid $3.42 for a total of $9.42.

Why is the cash price almost double the insurance price? Actually, the cash price is three times more for me considering I pay only $6.00 co-pay for each percription.

All pharmacies increase the "cash" price of prescriptions to cover overhead costs and hopefully recover costs lost in processing medicare and medicaid claims. The reason the prescription was a lot cheaper with your insurance is because of a contract between the insurance company and Walgreens. If you actually analyzed the amount taken out of your paycheck each time and your copay you would see that it equates the "cash" price of the prescription. Co-pays are set by insurance companies not pharmacies. Price differences in "cash" prices can be found between pharmacies and can significantly differ if the pharmacy offers a special program, such as a loyalty program. If you do not have insurance it can pay off to shop around, but if you have insurance the co-pay will more than likely be the same no matter what pharmacy you use.
