When pricing my prescriptions, why should I consider generics or preferred brand-name drugs?

You may save money since generics or preferred brand-name drugs usually cost less than non-preferred brand-name drugs. There are generic versions to many brand-name drugs and many new generics become available on a regular basis. Check with your doctor if a lower-cost generic or preferred brand-name drug would be the right option for you.
