Yes! Even if you have health insurance or Medicare, GoodRx can still help you control your prescription drug costs and find prices that are lower than your typical co-pay. Did you know that GoodRx has been found to beat insurance copays about 40% of the time? It's also a great resource to use when your insurance doesn't cover a drug or if you can't afford your medication due to a high deductible.
You can use a GoodRx discount instead of your prescription insurance or medicare if the cost is lower. However, GoodRx cannot be combined with your insurance or any federal or state-funded program such as Medicare or Medicaid. GoodRx is not insurance.
If you choose to use a GoodRx coupon or your GoodRx Gold membership, it’s important to ask the pharmacist not to run your prescription through your insurance or Medicare (Beware: This tends to happen often). Ask that the pharmacist use the coupon or Gold card to process the transaction as cash instead.
If your pharmacist has any trouble using the discount instead of your insurance or medicare, please give us a call at (855) 268-2822 (Monday-Sunday, between the hours of 8am and 7pm CT). Our GoodRx Advocates are always happy to help, and can typically resolve most issues while you’re in the pharmacy.
