The N.J. Prescription Drug Retail Price Registry will help consumers compare the retail prices charged by many pharmacies for the 150 most-frequently prescribed prescription drugs.
By comparing prices here, consumers can see what a pharmacy has reported to the State that it charged for a specific prescription drug. Comparing the prices listed in this registry will help a consumer find the pharmacy in his or her area with the lowest retail price for a specific prescription drug.
To use this registry, click here or click the "Search" link on the navigation bar under the New Jersey Prescription Drug Price Registry title above. After selecting the medication (prescription drug) and medication type (strength and form) from the pull-down menus, enter your town or ZIP code and then click the Search button. Please make certain to select the proper strength and form (using the medication type pull-down menu) because a prescription drug can be offered in different dosages and forms.
Based on the medication, medication type and town or ZIP code you selected, a list of pharmacies will appear. The registry shows the price per unit (single dose) based upon the last quantity reported by the pharmacy and the retail price for that quantity. The actual retail price may vary depending on the number of units purchased.
The Prescription Drug Retail Price Registry will be updated weekly to provide consumers with current pricing information. Please note that prices may vary from day to day and that the prices shown on the Registry are not guaranteed. The prices displayed in the Registry are compiled from the most recent claims submitted by licensed New Jersey pharmacies to the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services as their "usual and customary" prices. If a pharmacy did not submit a claim for a particular drug and dosage during the reporting period, the Registry will include the last reported data for that pharmacy/drug/dosage.
The Division of Consumer Affairs has endeavored to make this registry easy for consumers to use. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please use the "Contact Us" form that is included on the site.
Advisory: It is very important that you tell your health care practitioner and the pharmacist about all of the medications and supplements that you are taking and to ask them how to avoid harmful interactions between those drugs. You should also ask your healthcare practitioner and pharmacist about any side effects associated with drugs you are taking or any other question you may have about the drug.
