Like just about everyone these days, Partners HealthCare caregivers are concerned with health care costs. We are committed to doing our part to avoid waste and unnecessary costs for our patients and for the nation’s health care system. Our goal is to manage the high costs associated with brand-name medications when compared to similar generic drugs. We work to lower the cost of care, helping patients save an average range of $15 to $30 for each prescription.
