GoodRx's cash prices are based on multiple sources. Some prices are based on the average cash price paid for a particular prescription at a specific pharmacy or chain. We use this information to create an average - estimated cash price. Because cash prices are estimates, they can sometimes change very quickly.
Other pharmacy cash prices are based on a pharmacy's published pricing list. The lists, typically published on the pharmacy’s website, often include popular generic drugs with cheap cash prices.
These generic drug program prices may be higher in the states of California, Hawaii, Minnesota, Montana, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin, due to laws within these states. Our listed prices reflect the official pharmacy price list, but some programs do have restrictions. Ultimately, the final cash price is determined by your local pharmacy.
While we try to be as accurate as possible and make updates based on recent price increases or decreases, we always recommend checking with your pharmacy before filling. The final cash price will be determined by your local pharmacy.
Pharmacies are contractually obligated to honor most GoodRx coupons, while cash prices are estimates, as marked. If the GoodRx coupon price is lower than the cash price the pharmacy is able to offer, you can use the coupon instead.
