    What is GoodRx?

    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 have passed 25-80% more of the cost of drugs onto patients.

    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 copay. Hundreds of generic medications are available for $4 or even free without insurance.
