I am posting this query here at the suggestion of CABob who responded when I posted it via the ASK A FOOLISH QUESTION board:

I want to know if all preferred pharmacies within a Medicare Advantage plan charge the same for a particular prescription. I. E., if I am a member of Medicare Advantage ABC, will my Rx cost the same at all their preffered pharmacies or might one be cheaper than another? I cannot find the answer. Is there a board or site that might address this?

Thank you very much.

It's been my experience that you will get the best deal on prescriptions by using the mail-in service provided by whichever carrier you chose. I don't take anything fancy but my prescriptions (except one) have no co-pay when I use the mail in -- Humana.

That doesn't really answer your question, but this is the best I can do.
