Expensive Prescriptions? Let Lung Center of America introduce you to Good Rx!
Authored by - Julie Eversole, Operations Manager at the Lung Center of America
Why do I need GoodRx?
Prescription drug prices are not regulated. The cost of a prescription may differ by more than $100 between pharmacies across the street from each other!
Insurance isn’t helping like it used to. In the past 10 years, insurance companies started passing 25-80% more of the cost of drugs onto patients.
How can GoodRx help me?
GoodRx gathers current prices and discounts to help you find the lowest cost pharmacy for your prescriptions. The average GoodRx customer saves $355 a year on their prescriptions.
GoodRx is 100% free. No personal information required.
How do I find discounts for my drug?
It’s easy. Just go to the home page, type in your drug’s name in the search field, and click the “Find the Lowest Price” button.
They’ll even help you spell the name of your prescription.
What are GoodRx coupons?
GoodRx coupons will help you pay less than the cash price for your prescription. They’re free to use and are accepted at virtually every U.S. pharmacy.
Your pharmacist will know how to enter the codes on the coupon to pull up the lowest discount available.
How do I use a GoodRx coupon?
It’s similar to using a coupon at a grocery store. Simply print the coupon and bring it with you to the pharmacy when you pick up your prescription. The pharmacist will enter the numbers on the coupon into their system to find the discount.
Don’t have a printer or want to save paper and ink cartridges? You can show the coupon on your phone by:
A) Sending the coupon to yourself via email or text
B) Or using the mobile app
C) Or visiting the mobile website
What if I have insurance or Medicare?
Many insurance plans have high deductibles or limited formularies that don’t cover the drugs you need.
GoodRx may be able to find you a lower price than your insurance co-pay. Hundreds of generic medications are available for $4 or even free without insurance.
How does GoodRx make money?
GoodRx is free for consumers, and we do not require that you create an account to search for prices and receive discounts. We make money from advertisements on our site and referral fees.
