Generic medications – up to 80% less than brand name
GEM and CVS share two goals – to keep you and your family healthy and to reduce costs to both you and your employer. In the US, the Food and Drug Administration requires generic drugs to meet the same standards as brand name drugs. They contain the exact same ingredients, yet brand name drugs can run up to 80% more cost.
To reduce your co-pay (where applicable), and to help your employer manage healthcare costs, speak to your doctor or pharmacist about the availability of generics.
Facts from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
- The FDA requires generics to have the same active ingredients, strength and dosage form as their brand-name counterparts
- The FDA requires proof that a generic performs the same as its brand-name counterpart
- The FDA monitors adverse effects and conducts ongoing quality control
- Many generic drugs are made in the same manufacturing plants as brand-name drug products and must pass the same quality standards
Ready to save with generics?
If you are currently taking a brand-name medication, ask your doctor if a generic is available to replace it, or simply ask the pharmacist when you are refilling it!
Any time you are prescribed a new medication, be sure to ask if a generic is available when it is being written, or filled at the pharmacy.
Maintenance Medication – Savings and Convenience
