Navitus Cost Compare Tool can save your money on prescriptions

With the cost of prescription drugs continually increasing, it pays to shop around. Navitus Health Solutions, which manages the VUMC pharmacy benefit, has released a new online price tool that will help you search for retailers that offer the lowest prescription drug prices. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Visit the Navitus website and click on Member Login. Register for a NAVI-GATE account or log in with your username and password. If you have never completed a registration on the Navitus website, you will need your Navitus ID number, which can be found on your Navitus benefits card.

Step 2: Click on the Cost Compare button on the left side menu.  Click the member for whom you would like to conduct the price search. Note: You can conduct a search for yourself or dependents under age 12, but other family members enrolled in the pharmacy benefit will need to register separately.

Step 3: Type the name of the drug for which you want to compare prices. You can also search your medication history, which is auto populated based on your Navitus member ID. Choose a quantity and supply and disbursement form — for example, 30 pills over 30 days in the form of caplets.
