The Emily at Emily’s Project is me, Emily Kaminski. I’m a teacher turned frugal stay-at-home mom who filled a simple prescription one day and came home with an idea. I went to the pharmacy not expecting a large bill. After all, I have insurance. My husband and I pay dearly for our health insurance, and so I was very surprised and annoyed to be told at the pharmacy that my insurance designated my prescription as tier 3 and wouldn’t even begin to help until the cost was $60. Once I called my insurance and figured out what “tier 3” and “formulary” meant, I got curious and called several local pharmacies just to see what their “cash price” was. I assumed that prescriptions would be about the same everywhere so I was really shocked to find that my prescription was $37 cheaper at another pharmacy. I started to wonder how many more people were victims of assuming prices were about the same everywhere. So I’ve created a site that gives people a place to compare prices of prescriptions. Much of the content is already available so check it out at www.emilysproject.com Please leave your feedback and join us too. Thanks!
