I think $500 is a lot for your pregnancy. I have only gotten 3 prescriptions during my pregnancy. Vitamins and antacids, which are both available over the counter if its cheaper. The only expensive thing I have had has been prescription hemorrhoid creams…And hopefully you won’t need it! But that is the one thing that I’ve had the prescription definitely surpasses the over the counter options. 

I will say that paying for a prescription plan once you have kids maybe be a consideration tho. Hubby has blue cross blue shield and we prolly pay $40-60 every time my step son gets sick.

Two of my friends that just had babies both had to take an anti-nausea med throughout the whole pregnancy.  It was a lot of pills and since you can only take prescriptions that are safe for pregnant women it limits your selection sometimes. 

I would tend to say yes the $500 is probably worth it because you may need meds after giving birth too.   You figure each prescription at around $50 each (full price for generic, much high for the brand name) if you get 10 prescriptions/refills then its worth it.

i think it depends on your health… which you can’t always predict until your pregnant. for me, i get really bad migraines so i’m still taking lots of meds, and many women start getting migraines during pregnancy so you just don’t know what you’ll need.

i would do it. you never know what’s going to happen, and you could end up having to pay a lot more.
