Default Do they sell insulin at Costco?

Do they sell insulin at the pharmacies in Costco store? If so, how much does it cost there? Is it any cheaper than at other retail pharmacies?

I don't know as I don't take insulin, but I imagine they do. Go to their website, click on 'Pharmacy' and there you can search for medication prices.

I don't see why they wouldn't sell it. I have priced other drugs there and found they are not always cheaper. But do some comparison shopping. We now buy our expensive drugs from an online pharmacy in Canada
Canada Pharmacy Store, Online Canadian Prescription and Non Prescription Pharmacies, Buy Discount Generic Drugs ? NorthWestPharmacy.com I don't use insulin, yet but I have checked out their prices and they look fairly cheap compared to US pharmacies.

Your link doesn't work.


And the pharmacy section on the Costco website can't be used to find out whether or not they sell insulin.

If you have a local Costco, why not call them on the phone, Leafs?
