A law gives insurance companies control of what a pharmacist can say to you, barring them from telling you if its cheaper to pay cash for your meds or got through your insurance company.

I actually heard this story earlier (NBC news), and asked my pharmacist. He told me that he's not limited in that way, and will always tell me the fairest price available. I've known him for years, and have had him do such things on occasion, so I don't know how widespread it is, but....doesn't hurt to ask.
