I would say it depends on how much you go to the dr and how many meds you are on.. Me I could not go without ins.. I go to the doc atleast every other week or weekly. And on a bunch of meds..

I know there are some cards just for med discounts but I cant think of the name of them. You can also call liberty medical they give lower prices than alot of pharmacys.. My aunt said a 3 month supply of her meds through them was what 1 month worth would have cost at her other pharmacy. I hope this helps...
