As I’ve written about over the past couple months, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and had to start taking medication for it.
I discovered a new LifeTOOL for medications. I want to share it & ask you to share it too.
It’s called GoodRx.com
What’s important about GoodRx.com is you can use it whether or not you have insurance!
So here is how it works –
Go to GoodRx.com & type in the name of the medication. (1st time they’ll need your zip code)
This will bring up a list of pharmacies near you with the lowest cost of that medicine!
Some will have a coupon you can print or send as a text, others will just list the estimated cash price.
I recommend calling to confirm what their cash price is before you go there as a way to avoid surprises & wasting your time!
So, let me give you an example:
My doctor sent my script electronically to my local Walmart pharmacy.
Important: Ask your doctor for a paper script so you can shop around for the cheapest place to get your medicine!
I have a $20 co-pay for a 30 day supply of generic medications. But what I found on GoodRx.com was a coupon for Walmart with a cost of $12.72. I sent it to my phone.
After giving the tech my name & birthday, she stated, “That will be $20.”
I held up my phone & said, “I’d like to use this Good RX coupon.” Which she looked at the numbers and then typed them in to her computer.
She disappeared for a moment to the other side of the pharmacy – I realized later she had to reprint the papers and receipt to the cheaper price.
I paid the $12.72 INSTEAD of the $20 co-pay I would have had with my insurance!
Yes – it really is that simple!
The bad news for me is I could have gotten it EVEN cheaper!
There was a coupon for Costco where it was $6.01 with the free coupon.
This is why next time I will ask for the paper script!
IMPORTANT: You DO NOT need to be a member of Costco to use their pharmacy. Just tell the person at the door you’re there to drop off or pick up medication.
Please share this LifeTOOL with as many people as you can!
