Health-related websites can often be difficult to find in the United States, particularly for those seeking to avoid high-deductible plans.
But the combination of high-quality health-related products, great customer service and affordability have made the health-care marketplace a natural fit for pharmacies.
That makes it hard to find out what a health-focused pharmacy is worth, especially for the average consumer.
One reason is that there are so many different kinds of pharmacies in the U.S., and some are not well-known.
For example, there are specialty pharmacies, such as a pharmacy for diabetes care, a specialty pharmacy for breast-feeding and a health insurance company.
These pharmacies are usually much more expensive than their generic counterparts.
This infographic by Next Big Futures breaks down what each type of pharmacy can offer, and offers a quick guide to the most common ones.
