  • Let me speak with the doctor to see if there are any cheaper alternatives medications.
  • No, the costs of my medications are becoming very burdensome. 
  • I do believe there are a couple of generic medications I can switch the patient to.  I will send the prescriptions to his pharmacy.
  • Dr. White, I saw Mr. Wilson and he was very upset about the high costs of his medications.  Are there generic drugs alternatives available?  I feel if we can reduce the cost of his medications, he can better focus on maintaining his health.

  • That is great news, I am so relieved that you were able to help me lower my medication costs.
