I realize this is pointing out something most people today are at least somewhat aware of, but finding alternatives to drugs is another way to save. Not always instead of drugs completely, but maybe for taking fewer drugs, or, in some cases (e.g. pain management) lower doses of the drug are possible after lifestyle changes, diet, exercise, etc.

Doesn't always work for all people for all illnesses, but many have found success, and by doing so, you save not only money but also the side effects and save yourself also the (often not fully understood) effects of decades long long-term use of a drug, or save yourself from needing a higher dose of the same drug for the rest of your life..
