— You may be surprised by the prescription drug deals you’ll now be able to discover through your pharmacist.
Insurers and middlemen will no longer be able to stop pharmacists from telling customers they could get a cheaper price if they don’t use their insurance.

News Center 7 consumer reporter Rachel Murray will find out what local pharmacists and customers think about the potentially money-saving moves today on WHIO-TV at 5 p.m.
