The same prescription could cost you more in Cleveland than Columbus. This is just one result from a new study published on consumer website, GoodRx. The study details how prices of prescriptions can vary widely from city to city.
For example, prescription drug prices are about 13 percent higher than the national average in San Francisco. But in Columbus, we're about 20 percent less than the national average.
Higher cost of living in cities like San Francisco can contribute to the issue, but they aren't the main contribute.
Today on Wellness Wednesday, we discuss what's the causing this geographic price variation, gene editing, and when you should check bone density.
