Web tool may help Bronx prescription drug users get most bang for buck
(10/11/04) KINGSBRIDGE New York State is giving its residents a high-tech tool for researching prescription drug prices.
A Web site is now available that will allow consumers to comparison shop for their prescriptions without leaving the house. The site allows users to see the price various pharmacies in their neighborhood charge for a specific medication. Although not every pharmacy is participating, state officials say it should give users a general idea when it comes to prescription drug pricing.
Owners of some local pharmacies say it is always a good idea for residents to research pharmacies in their area with or without the new site.
