My family has been blessed with good health and I am very thankful for that. While we have been fairly healthy, we had an expensive year medically in 2018. Between my daughter’s surgery and a few other things, it was a year that I don’t want to repeat in 2019!
Along with the money we spent, it was time-consuming to keep everything straight. (There was even a situation where the insurance company was confused on a certain issue and I spent so much time going around and around with them. I won’t bore you with the story, but yikes…so many hours on the phone.)
With paperwork coming from multiple places, I later realized it would have been easier to have a system and way to track everything. Because we have been healthy and this was the first year with many more medical bills, I didn’t have a system down. I should have been tracking everything in one place.
I have created a printable to help you keep track of your appointments and medical visits. I hope that you find it helpful as you try to stay organized and on top of your medical expenses. There are two versions on the same PDF depending on whether or not you want to track multiple family members on the same worksheet. Get the Medical Expense Tracker PDF here.
Then keep reading for a tip on how to save on your prescriptions!
Until recently, we have not had to deal with filling more than a very occasional prescription. This means that I didn’t know the best way to compare and figure out the costs of certain prescriptions. As I filled a few prescriptions over the last couple of years, I was unsure how to figure out where to find the best price. If this is you, I wanted to mention a free and simple prescription savings option.
I wish I had known about SingleCare when filling prescriptions over the past year or so. Why? Because this free tool gives you the opportunity to compare the costs of prescription medications. There is no calling around, you can just use their simple online search or mobile app.
SingleCare is a prescription savings card that can help you save up to 80% at the pharmacy. The card is accepted nationwide at over 35,000 pharmacies, including Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, and more.
How do you use SingleCare?
- Either online or within the app – enter your location and search for your prescription
- Compare the prices from various pharmacies and select the price and pharmacy you want.
- Show the pharmacist your SingleCare card when filling your prescription. You can print the card or show it within the app.
SingleCare believes that consumers should be able to compare the costs of their medications and not worry about networks, coverage limitations, or deductibles. You can compare costs and save money when you fill a prescription using their Singlecare card.
Here is an example of research results for Vitamin D:
