Let's face it. Prescription drug prices can be expensive. CVS Pharmacy conducted a national poll and it showed more than 80 percent of Americans are concerned about the costs. 

So what's the solution?

CVS is launching an app called the CVS Pharmacy RX Savings Finder. CVS pharmacists will be able to access ways you can save on your prescriptions based on the types of drugs you're buying, your insurance plan and more. CVS's new tool makes it easier to find cheaper prescriptions.

CVS Caremark offers clients offers preventative drug lists that make medications for many common and chronic conditions available at a $0 copay. 

There are other websites you can use, too. Good RX and Blink Health find cheaper prices on your prescriptions.

Walgreens also has a prescription savings club. It offers savings on brand-name and generic medications as well as other Walgreens products.
