Patients may be able to cut their prescription drug costs by a third simply by buying in bulk. A new study finds when consumers purchased their medications in 3 month supplies, they cut the cost by 29 percent.

That's an average savings of 5 dollars per prescription.

More than two hundred billion dollars is spent on prescription drugs in the U.S. year.
