Officials in Minnesota are touting a new Internet site that enables consumers to price shop more than 1000 community pharmacies across the state for the cheapest prices on their prescriptions. The Web site lists the prices of 200 common drugs based on amounts the pharmacies charged within the past 12 months to the state's Medical Assistance program.
Although officials at the Minnesota Department of Human Services conceded that there is no guarantee that the posted prices are current or that they would be honored by the pharmacy, they said that the Web site offers a good starting point for checking Rx prices.
