About the Drugs

The drugs selected for price comparison include 150 of the most commonly prescribed drugs in Michigan’s Medicaid formulary. The strength and quantities of the drugs reflect the most typical results for a 30-day supply or the most frequently billed quantities.

About the Pricing

The prices listed on Michigan Drug are a guide to compare prices, not a guarantee of a particular price. Pricing information is based on paid Medicaid claims submitted by participating pharmacies. The prices listed are the retail price for generic drugs. If no generic drug price is available then brand name drug pricing is used. The prices listed are from the most current survey but retail prices are constantly changing and your local pharmacy may change its prescription drug prices more frequently than this site can be updated.

Call Ahead Before You Shop

It’s always a good idea to call ahead to your pharmacy to check the current price before shopping.

About Retail Drug Discount Programs

Several of the nation’s largest retailers and pharmacies now offer discounted pricing on a large range of generic equivalents and brand name prescription drugs. Drug discount cards, retail drug discount programs, and other programs may offer substantial savings from retail prices. To view a list of retail drug discount programs in Michigan, click here.
