They did say I can shop around and look for best prices in town. Or I can find a reputable online source to see if it's lower priced online.
I'll know more in July when my HDHP kicks in finally. I don't plan on touching the HSA money though.
I have found that goodrx.com is a nice source for prices, as well as discount coupons, if you don't have rx insurance. Also, I had my doc fax a prescription to a Canadian pharmacy and got the generic drug for a tiny fraction of what I would have paid for the generic here in the US. How screwed up is that, where I can get the same thing from Canada for 90% off the best US price?
