You've probably seen the commercials about various pharmacies (if you're in the US) offering generic prescriptions for reduced costs. These programs started out offering only antibiotics, but now cover many other medications in various categories (as mentioned in a previous topic). No insurance is required. Of course, you still must have a prescription from your doctor.
Some generic birth control pills have now been added to some of these lists!
For these prices, Hannaford requires you to sign up for the Healthy Saver discount card. It's free to enroll, never expires, and just requires the same information you would have to give when filling a prescription (name, address, telephone number, birthday, medical allergies). And of course, by signing up, your information is compeletely confidential, and you won't be put on any mailing order lists or anything.
This is a part of Walgreens' "Prescription Savings Club" that offers for $12.99 for a 3-month supply of over 400 generics. You must sign-up for this club and there is an enrollment fee ($20 per year for an individual or $35 per year for families). This is still a good deal if you don't have insurance and especially if you are on (or even eventually may need) more than one prescription.
(If you are going to use programs like this, please remember that you may need to have your health care provider write the prescription for a "3 month supply" or "90-day supply.")
