There’s a website that is saving Americans up to 80 percent on prescription drugs, and it’s 7 million monthly visitors are proof that it’s on to something. The site is called GoodRx. It was founded six years ago by some of Facebook’s original employees, and it’s done for prescription drugs what Facebook has done for social media. It’s reinvented the business.
Quite simply, GoodRx scans many sources for the best prices on the prescriptions you need to fill at 70,000 U.S. pharmacies, then makes those prices available to you – all at no cost.
“Today, most patients leave their doctor’s office with no sense of what their prescriptions cost at the pharmacy,” said Doug Hirsch, co-founder, and co-CEO of GoodRx. “GoodRx provides price transparency so that you know exactly what you’ll pay at the counter. It’s like Expedia, Orbitz, or Kayak, but for prescription drugs.”
GoodRx leaves no one behind.
Soaring prescription costs are leaving many Americans without the medications they need to treat chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and mental illnesses such as depression. Even if you have insurance, many plans have high deductibles or limited formularies that don’t cover the drugs you need. GoodRx can help by finding lower prices than your insurance copay. Hundreds of generic medications are available for a few dollars, or even for free without insurance. It’s no wonder that GoodRx has saved patients more than $3 billion on prescription drug costs. The best part is that it’s completely free to use.
How does GoodRx work?
GoodRx pinpoints and compiles prices and discounts to help you find the lowest-cost pharmacy for your prescriptions. Simply visit the site and type in your prescription name and location, and it will list the prices and coupons for pharmacies near you. GoodRx saves you money even if you already have insurance and works for every member of the family, including pets. Then next time you visit your pharmacy, just show your coupon – it’s that easy.
