I've been unsuccessful in find a site that does this, so does anyone here know of a website where you can enter the name of a drug and see where it can be bought for different prices? Maybe with the "add on" of being able to say you're with AARP, AAA, or some other group?

Just do a Google search

Here's a couple of suggestions among several
www.goodrx.com
www.pharmacychecker.com (seems to have a Canadian focus)

If you are looking at common long-term meds then Target, WalMart and other large retailers have their own generic programs (no insurance needed). Target has a list of meds on their website.

Thank you, HoHum.

My search gave me such a wide variety of answers that it was hardly any use at all. The goodrx.com one you offered was perfect.

Those of us who have Rx med coverage can't just shop around. My current coverage limits the places where they'll cover the scripts. At the moment, it's either Walgreens or CVS.

It still is wise to shop around. I've recently had to start taking a drug that has a $90/month copay if I go through my insurance policy.

I was able to buy without going through insurance for $53 for a 90 day supply. Just because it's covered by your insurance policy formulary doesn't mean you must get it that way. (In my case, Costco had the lowest price, and you don't need to be a member to get your RX filled there)
