What exactly is a Best Buy Drug?

A Best Buy Drug is one that is in the top tier of effectiveness in its category, has a safety record equal or better than other drugs in the category, and typically has an average retail price that is substantially lower than the most costly drug in the category. In several of our categories, a consumer can save more than $1,000 a year by switching to a Best Buy.
