The October issue of the AARP Bulletin includes the following useful tips on how to cut costs on prescription drugs.

Check out drug assistance programs through your area agency on aging or http://www.benefitscheckup.org.

Ask for help from the companies that manufacture the drugs you take. For a free directory of drug companies call 800-762-4636 or go to http://www.helpingpatients.org.

Check out discount drug cards at http://www.rxassist.org.

Take advantage of discount mail order plans such as AARP's program (800-289-8849 or http://www.aarppharmacy.com) or compare prices among plans at http://www.destinationrx.com.

Two U.S. nonprofits help Americans fill prescriptions by mail order from licensed Canadian pharmacies: The Minnesota Senior Federation (877-645-0261, Ext. 124) or http://www.mnseniors.org) and the United Health Alliance (866-633-7482 or http://www.medicineassist.org.).

AARP emphasizes that publishing these tips does not imply the endorsement of AARP.
