Dr Jeff Crawford - Physician endorsement for Good Rx
I don’t understand how Good Rx negotiates these prices, but I am a physician, a cardiologist, and I tell all my patients to compare Good Rx prices with their $15,000 to 20,000/year health insurance provided prescription benefits. From their feedback and my own experience, Good Rx is more often than not better than even thru their health insurance benefits. Yesterday I demonstrated to a patient that thru Good Rx her Tamiflu Rx would be something like $37 vs over $300 thru CVS pharmacy (the major chains are always the most expensive) even using her health insurance card. I recommend for every Rx and for every refill, even on 90 day chronic medications, I ll compare Good Rx with insurance provided prices. I haven’t NOT used Good Rx for perhaps 4-5 yrs (I.e., I always find it better). The only caveat is that perhaps 10% of the time Walmart pharmacies don’t honor the Good Rx price. They are the only pharmacy that I ve run into this with, who does that occasionally. If you find that is the case when you go to pick it up, show them the price (I take a screen shot of the Good Rx promised price on my phone for proof), and if they don’t honor it, I would just ask for your prescription back and go to the next closest competitor. Good Rx is saving my patients lives affordably! Tell all your friends who don’t have surplus money about this excellent free offer!!!
UsherDesmond - Yes, it absolutely does save you money!
I’ve used GoodRX for years, I started seeing a new Dr. and he asked me if I have the “GoodRx” app. I told him I’d never heard of it, he told me that he had recently heard about it from one of his patients, and that it can save some serious money on medication. I downloaded it. My first experience was at the other corner pharmacy (not my preferred CVS)
I did have insurance through my employer. BUT, keep reading. I handed the Pharmacist my prescription, and my insurance card. She put everything in the system and said my medication was going to cost $140!! She saw the look on my face and said Yep, I guess you don’t want it do you. Even her pharmacy tech was surprised at how rude she was. I explained to her that I didn’t need it, and asked if she would quote the price with the good RX coupon. She said that no coupon was going to be better than insurance and straight up walked off! After she walked off, her pharmacy tech asked if he could do it for me, after handing him my phone he scan the coupon and the price went from $140 down to $45! That was just the coupon, no insurance! Yes I absolutely did what you would’ve done. I let the pharmacist know immediately that she needs to actually listen to her customers and that I saved $95 with the GoodRx app!
35madscientist - Mixed feelings…
I have been using the app for some meds for migraines, and I was impressed by the amount that people could save with this app! I also think it’s great for those who don’t have insurance or have limited insurance (HMOs, etc.), since people should be able to get the best medications for them. However, I have experienced trying to get one medication and my pharmacy knew it was no longer available—the FDA has concerns that really irritate me since it isn’t a controlled substance, but they worry that people can get one of the ingredients OTC, and this could lead to liver (and possibly kidney) problems—mainly liver toxicity. But they only give a small amount of them anyway, and taking the OTC would do nothing for those with migraines that would cause a physician to prescribe this medication anyway. Nothing has stopped my intractable migraines, but I had 2 that helped for a while—I could have a little break! I use other methods for relief and pray. I can still find the coupon for this medication in my area, and that’s just not good! What other meds might still be on the app? I thought the developer was up to date on the different meds in different ways from articles and other information I’ve read and seen. But now I’m not so sure. Please keep the information updated so that patients aren’t unaware. I appreciate that you have helped a lot of people and hopefully can still use the app for myself and others. But it is important to be updated. Thank you!
Antbelicheck - Good RX is a lifesaver
I am in recovery for a bad opiate problem I had. I have been clean and sober for going on 2 1/2 years I am very proud of myself for that it was extremely difficult. But the only reason I was able to do it is because of the treatment that I received from my doctor. I guess he is a psychiatrist and a treatment specialist. The meds that I have been taking I want gave me the ability to stop relying on the opiates. But my insurance was just recently canceled because I haven’t been able to work due to the coronavirus pandemic and my prescriptions were going to cost me about $350 a month on top of paying for my doctor visit every month I wouldn’t be able to afford that because of this pandemic. Fortunately somebody recommended good RX to me and it saved me $200 on my monthly meds. If it wasn’t for that I am afraid of what would happen to me if I did not have these meds. If it wasn’t for GoodRx I don’t know if I would be able to continue on the path that I am on which is the one I want to stay on if you need some help getting your prescriptions I recommend good RX to you. It is extremely valuable and will save you a lot of money. Good luck to you all and thanks to the makers of good RX if it wasn’t for you I don’t know where I’d be thank you
P!nk's#1fan - Better prices than using insurance!
I absolutely love and recommend GoodRx! I lost my insurance in January and have now gotten my new insurance. During that time span I started using GoodRx. I couldn’t believe how cheap some of my medications were! I have been taking multiple medications for years and paying $20 copay on almost every script that I have and my husbands as well. While I have been using GoodRx I have been paying less than my copayments were on my medications. Now that I have insurance again idk if I should continue using GoodRx or use my insurance and pay my copayments. The reason being is that last year I met my out of pocket and had a zero copay on my medicines for several months, however my family out of pocket wasn’t met so my husbands copays still had to be met. I know I will facing many medical bills this year as well but I don’t know if I will meet my out of pocket though so I’m not sure what I’ll do yet. If you don’t have insurance though I definitely would download the app and start using it. It will save you quite a bit of money for sure. Most pharmacies I have dealt with will not accept both insurance and another discount card or app for medications. They will only use one or the other. Get this app and enjoy your extra money that you will save!
BC0092 - Great savings seriously even if insured
I have no Rx insurance and was denied assistance when I had to (so i thought) leave a public sector job. Hmm Now i rely on good Rx as they have been literally life saving. I will openly and unapologetically say that being employed by the state department of health in Florida contributed as the major factor of the decline of my physical and mental health. I didn't find out about GoodRx until i had no income and chose to fight for each step toward being healthier. I still use this app as the savings are jaw-dropping hella good. More than private insurance. Pharmaceutical companies and even the dispensing pharmacies often mark-up the selling price of a medication. For example, one medication is valued on un-named pharmacy’s manifest of purchases as $7 cost paid to the manufacturer but attempted to charge unnamed consumer $91 for a nasal spray which soon after is on the shelves in both brand and generic (who could it be?). So enjoy saving money and always question authority. Help each other is what i would like as a consumer. There’s so much hate by default when our similarities and differences are how we learn and we teach embracing and sharing kindness. Be the change. - Ya’ll asked for it and obviously ...
Full-Time-Travelers - What a workout to save money
GoodRx advertises savings on drugs not covered by insurance and their pricing is lower than the cost of the drug to the pharmacy. One has to ask why would a pharmacy sign up to lose money. Big Y Foods pharmacy answer I found out was that they did not sign up with GoodRx. CVS answer was we will not honor the GoodRx price but they referred me to Walgreen who would honor the price but first needed the prescription to verify the price. They tried to have the prescription transferred from a Walmart pharmacy and had a problem but never contacted me. I called and they explained why they did not have the prescription. I told them how to fix the issue and reminded them not to order the prescription until they quoted me a price. I stopped by Walgreen’s pharmacy a few days later and found they ordered me the name brand drug for $1,000. GoodRx quotes Walgreens’ at $177. I declined the name brand drug and they then ordered the generic. While I was there I had the store clerk quickly verify the GoodRx price and he placed the order for the next day. I am puzzled why they couldn’t verify the price of the generic over the phone initially? But perseverance of multiple phone calls, confusion about prescription transfer, filling a prescription incorrectly but the end result was I saved $473. GoodRx is not easy but if you have the time and energy for quite a run around you too can save money with GoodRx.
Sheila H-R - Fantastic Savings Program and App!!!
I have been purchasing prescriptions (and some OTC drugs, which require a prescription) through Good Rx Gold and Good Rx Coupons, for about 6 or 7 months. I purchased the “Individual” plan, and I consider it as the best $5.99 per month that I have ever spent. To be clear, I have saved over $1300 in drug costs, since I began my subscription. To say that I am “Blown Away” would be putting it mildly!!! The one drawback is that one may have to use several different pharmacies to purchase his/her medications. This is because the drugs have different costs at different pharmacies. HOWEVER, with the amazing app and by inputting the formulary, one knows the cost of the drug (or an excellent approximation), prior to making the purchase. This may be a little inconvenient for the doctor, because to order a prescription electronically, they would first have to share their purchase plan with the patient (so that the patient can determine where would be the best price). However, I have yet to have a doctor to complain about having to do this, because I think that they know how much savings are realized by their patients. BRAVO, GOOD RX and GOOD RX GOLD!!!
V manderson - I’m very impressed!!!
Have saved literally hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of $ on expensive drugs since I started using it a few months ago. Didn’t try it initially when I first heard about it because I thought it was some kind of scam. Then my doctor’s office gave me a referral to the app. Of course, that legitimized it for me. My pharmacist at CVC told me this is killing them their prices are being so undercut.
Drug prices vary outrageously from pharmacy. Good Rx allows you to choose your lowest price then buy at that pharmacy.
This is how it works. Just anonymously enter your med name, dosage and how many pills a mo you take and a list will come up with pharmacies near you and their prices so you can compare. Choose the one you want, go to that pharmacy and give them your Rx. Show them on your ph their price for that med and they’ll sell it to you for that amount. Just like that! Unbelievable! But not unbelievable to your wallet. I watch and my prescriptions come in the bottles from the manufacturers so it’s not like any switches are made by the pharmacy. You don’t show them their Good Rx pricing on your ph until you’re ready to pay.
Also, very easy to transfer your existing Rx from your high price pharmacy to them.
Smile Rx - Laughter is the best medicine
This app makes what can be a harrowing chore actually bearable. It’s easy to find what medications you’re looking for, and the app tells you the cheapest place around to buy it, because GoodRx knows that prohibitive cost is the last thing you need to worry about when you’re dealing with whatever actual issue requires a prescription.
GoodRx makes it easy. And sometimes making it easy is just about reminding us there’s other humans all around.
Please give the employee who writes the mobile app “Update Notes” a big heartfelt THANK-YOU from me, (and also a raise? You should always listen to customer feedback you know!) because gearing up to struggle with all the complications and stress of illness and medications and money, and instead reading the breath of fresh air that is an entertaining GoodRx update log... the spark of joy, the simple reminder that there’s a person on the other end of the impersonal Internet, one who knows I’m a person too, made all the rest conquerable, even if just for one day. And the smallest speck of happiness and humanity can make all the difference “in these trying times.”
Sleepysb - GoodRX is often cheaper than my health insurance copay
I do not understand how there can be so much variation on the same medications. The need some kind of regulation. GoodRX is as good or sometimes better than actual health Insurance that you pay for. This is a FREE app, I don’t think drug prices should be like the stock market, and that is exactly how it is in the United States. We are the only developed country in the world that does not have some type of government oversight on what pharmaceutical companies can charge for medications. That’s why a lot of medications in Canada and Mexico are a fraction of what they charge for the same dug in the United States. The government should contract with GoodRX to do that. It looks like they already have the infrastructure to at least get it started.
Before GoodRX was around, I remember going to 3 different Walgreens in Ft. Myers on the same day to get my Androgel filled. I got 3 different prices from the same company ranging from $800-$1800. Why can’t medications be close to the same price wherever you go? Like gasoline or the price of beef per lb. Something needs to be done, this is the biggest problem within our healthcare system. Go for it GoodRX, go to congress and get it done!
Kevjles - Good Rx is a life savor.
I’ve been using Good Rx since around 2014. Thankfully I found them through a caring worker a lot a Local Phamacy. The Pharmacist assistant was belittling me because I was questioning the drastic change in my prescription meds I had been on for years and was told If I couldn’t afford the medication I could feel free to go to another pharmacy. Before leaving which I did and never looked back a nice coworker of theirs heard the discussion and realized I was shocked at how rude the lady behind the register was. Luckily at the time I had good insurance which surprisingly Good RX was cheaper than going through my insurance. Due to health problems I lost that good insurance and Good Rx has been a life savor. I have used it ever since. Especially now that due to my health conditions my insurance has once again been canceled. I can still afford my 5 prescriptions that keep me alive thanks to GoodRx. Just leaving the hospital yet again with the comfort of knowing that the new blood thinner they have prescribed me will not bankrupt me due to no insurance. The Hospital is another story. Thanks from the bottom of my irregular beating heart for being there for me. 🤩🙏🏼😎
A E Garfield - GoodRx Gold is worth its weight in Gold
I have been using GoodRx Gold ever since it came out. I just tried filling a prescription at a Ralph’s pharmacy that I’ve used for all of my prescriptions since 2002. The pharmacist told me that Ralph’s/Kroger no longer takes GoodRx Gold because, “Frankly, they’re losing money. The prices are less than Ralph’s/Kroger pays for their prescriptions.” In other words, GoodRx & GoodRx Gold are doing a Great Job! negotiating prescription prices for those of us who use this discount card. What’s interesting to me is that no pharmacist (I know all of them at this Ralph’s personally.) ever told me about the fact that Ralph’s/Kroger no longer takes GoodRx Gold. What am I going to do - even though I’ve used this pharmacy since 2002 for all of my prescriptions? I’ll take my prescription to a pharmacy that WILL fill my prescription using the GoodRx Gold discount because I’ve literally saved thousands of dollars using this discount card! (By the way, I do not work for any special interest or for GoodRx, nor has anyone paid me to say this. I’m just a happy consumer, a senior on Medicare, who wants to pass the word along.) Thanks!
Mellisacat - A life saver
I lost all my medications while traveling to visit a friend in another state. I was under the impression that if my doctors office ordered a replacement prescription for me my insurance would cover the medication. NO! I was stunned at the price of the medication and I called Humana only to find out that after years of being my insurance company, my insurance did not cover lost or stolen medication. If not for this app that saved me hundreds of dollars I really did not know what I was going to do. The pharmacy manager at Walgreens in Eureka Missouri was so kind and respected my situation and told me about this app. I was great full for the information that saved me so much money. I am talking in the hundreds of dollars. I hope someone like her is in every pharmacy and helps a customer in shock because they cannot pay for medicine that is important for their health. She could of not cared about my plight but she listened and told me about Good RX and excepted the coupons even after I had already paid the full price. She refunded my credit card and was so understanding and professional that someone should be aware of what she did for a customer in distress. Thank goodness for this app.
Happiehippiechick - Great savings with no insurance hassle!
Short story: I will never be without the GoodRx on my phone!! Read on if you want to know why. 😉
I discovered GoodRx when my dog needed expensive eye drops. The vet had the GoodRx cards in the exam room. I’m so glad I did because after that, my husband and I transitioned to a high deductible plan which meant paying the full insurance prices until our deductible was met. I started shopping around using the app to compare prices for the medications we needed and was happy to see we could save A LOT of money!! 💰
In the past two years, I’ve had multiple major reconstructive surgeries on my hands/wrists/arms and had to be on narcotic pain relievers afterward. New regulations made it easy for my insurance to deny me access to the medications my doctor prescribed even though I had met my very large out of pocket max for the year. GoodRx prices gave me an affordable alternative which allowed me to avoid the hassle of getting my insurance to pay...which would have meant suffering in pain while fighting with them! I am grateful I had access to an alternative that didn’t cost me a fortune. I tell everyone that will listen to check out GoodRx!! 😁
Yorkiemom1968 - Very satisfied
We live in Tennessee and we have good RX gold first of all for 999 per month it’s the best $10 a month we have ever spent because it saves us so much money we don’t even use my husband‘s insurance card through CVS because they were pre-authorizations only want to fill for seven days so you have to make two trips out to the pharmacy with good RX we save more money than our regular insurance co-pay we have never even used our insurance card through General Motors because of the CVS co-pay is so much. For example my husband was traveling to Omaha Nebraska the Hy-Vee pharmacy told them that they would not fill his narcotic because they didn’t except good RX for narcotics I called good RX customer service because Hy-Vee pharmacy is listed on the good RX as taking good RX by again and the good RX gold customer I do not get the free app I paid $10 a month the customerService representative called the Hy-Vee pharmacy herself and straightened out the problem they did a good RX gold for narcotics just not the free good RX appSo we were able to save over $204 on that particular medication thanks to the good RX gold customer service representative
Yemmawoo - Had it in my phone forever without use but WOW I’m impressed today
So I’ve had this app downloaded for probably 2 years with 0 use because I just don’t really get sick. Well I’ve been miserable for 5 days and finally decided to cough up 60$ to do a web cam visit with a doctor (god I love technology). I don’t have health insurance and urgent cares can get extremely expensive, especially with me pretty much knowing my diagnosis. Web cam doctor confirms that I more than likely have strep throat and sends my antibiotics to my pharmacy. I’ve done this before without insurance and I got really nervous about how much the pharmacy would charge me without insurance. I pull up my goodrx app and think there’s no way possible 30 antibiotics are going to be less than 10$. I can’t even get over the counter meds less than 10$. Well I was full of anxiety wondering if it was going to work or cost me upwards of 100$ for my medicine. It worked to my surprise and I’m a believer!! I’m a forever customer and I feel like I owed them this review. Thank you goodrx. I don’t know how you do it but thank you.
Thhall110856 - Dragon slayer
This fantastic service helps me as a physician to help my patients beat the unreasonable and unforgiving pharmacists, health insurance companies and big Pharma. It’s still disheartening that I have to tell patients that the pharmacists will not voluntarily tell them that they can pay less if they pay cash than if they use their “health insurance”. The pharmacists always take the highest price, and only render the lower price when the patient knows they have the right to receive a lower cash pay price. The health insurers are in cahoots with the pharmacist in this cheat. And of course the health insurers are taking over the pharmacy industry by directing patients to “pharmacy benefit managers” who work really hard at benefiting them selves. Good RX works so well, I’m waiting any day for it to disappear after being purchased by one of the evil “pharmacy benefit managers”. They are “managing” things all right. They’re bringing healthcare to a screeching halt by requiring prior authorization for healthcare that actually benefits people. They don’t want people to receive healthcare that works. They are only interested in enriching themselves.
Banana Who - Good Rx
I was diagnosed with breast cancer. They started me on hormones and I paid $250 for a 90 day script. Then my treatment changed because I needed chemo. So I was prescribed something different and I mentioned to my doctor about what I paid for the first. He was stunned. He gave me a Good Rx card and looked up the hormones, I could have paid only $15 for them with Good Rx. When Walgreens told me $500+ for my 2 new prescriptions, I asked if they didn't have the discount cards, and was offered a $20/mo membership with them that would bring my prescriptions price down to $108 Somehow I couldn't accept that either. I loaded the app to my phone, compared prices and called Hy-Vee to ask about moving my prescriptions. The pharmacist I spoke to at Hy-Vee did get my scripts transferred and she was really helpful. I paid under $25 that was fantastic! Imagine if I never asked, Dillons would have let me pay $1,000 for 4 x hormones. The only thing that could be greater is if they would give me back the $235 they made me over pay, but with Good Rx I feel pretty confident that it's the best way to go. And I highly recommend having this card, I'm really happy to have it!
Answerprayer - GREAT DISCOUNTS! THANK YOU!!
Thank you very much !!! I don’t know what I would have done without it. My spouse passed away recently from GBM. I suddenly had no medical insurance and my husband had been the breadwinner while I had taken care of my grandsons and also been homemaker and sadly been diagnosed with arthritis in all my joints as well as fibromyalgia and CFS. I have to be able to take care of a farm, farm animals and working dogs, among other responsibilities. It’s so difficult to go through such grief and mourning and still have to go on. Without GOODRX I JUST WOOILD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO AFFORD MY MEDICATIONS and be able to push through and get things done on the farm. My only disappointment is that we don’t have a pharmacy which would offer a good price ( with goodrx) on lidocaine patches 5% ( 90 a month), prescribed by my GP. On my husbands insurance/ drug plan, it only cost $10 for 90 patches. It helped so much for the chronic pain and was at least one less medication that went through my digestive system. Praying for a way to get that at a decent price. God bless you all.
Snowbaby2020 - Good Rx Review
Oh my words! Incredible with how much you have saved me with my medications! I am generally in the “ donut hole” by March beginning every year and that includes having to pay a $560 out of pocket part d drug deductible. I’m a senior on social security. One of my meds is my “ life line”- amitiza. The cost out of pocket is astronomical but I have to get it thru insurance as it’s still beyond what I can pay with Good Rx ( over $1400 for 3 month supply ). This is the drug that puts me in the donut hole early on. Do you think this med will ever go genetic or the price will come down? Aside from this I am forever grateful for Good Rx as I have saved literally $100’s out of pocket on my other meds. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Even this seems not enough. So so very grateful for lowering my financial stress level in regards to the huge savings you offer on the 5 other drugs I require. I bypass my part d insurance coverage even though I have to pay the monthly premium. I am in hopes that some day the amitiza will go generic and that cost will become more reasonable and affordable. Thank you for all that you do! Good Rx rocks!!!
JudithReigh22 - So VERY helpful
I rarely do “reviews” but THIS app has saved me so much money. When my insurance benefits changed drastically a couple of years ago, When I went on SSDI, I no longer enjoyed being able to use commercial coupons for a couple of VERY expensive meds. While nothing will ever replace THAT, GoodRx has saved me a LOT of money! The “Part D plan” that I have to use doesn’t cover almost all of my essential prescribed meds. Without GoodRx, I don’t think I would even be able to pay for all of my meds. At least now I can afford most of them, and some of the GoodRx prices are better than what my private insurance used to be! It’s always been a “fun challenge” to me, always shopping around for everything to find the very best prices. With this app, I can always find the best price nearby and it has become an essential app for me. I highly recommend using GoodRx, even if you have wonderful prescription drug coverage. It beats even the smallest copays sometimes! I LIKE to save money. I think we all do….. Thank you for this app!
Bwbwtrtr8908 - Unbelievable that more people don’t know about this
My first time, unfortunately. I could’ve saved sooo much money in the past if I had known about this😔 So.. I had my prescription called in to a different pharmacy due to the one in my doctor’s office being closed for remodeling. It’s normally $20 even there. The pharmacies near were a Publix and a CVS. At Publix it was $87 and at cvs it was $98. Something told me to google apps that could possibly save me money. I remember reading or hearing about that somewhere at some time. I ended up downloading this app, after reading the reviews, and giving it a shot. When I tell you the coupon it gave me for public showed the price of $37!! BUT when he scanned the coupon off of my phone, it went even lower.. to $33!! No complaints, wxcept I wish I had known way sooner! Just such a shame they won’t tell you about this!! As a single parent trying to make ends meet, like ALOT of us are, I’m sure, any help is always needed! Thank you soooooo much for this app and the help you provide!!!🙏🏼🙏🏼 Again.. I’m just in shock.. this is truly unbelievable!
Mrhcktt - Bait and switch
The Costco in Memphis Tennessee doesn’t honor the price posted on the Bogus RX app even after telling me over the phone they do. After being informed over the phone by Costco that they would honor the price I told them to go ahead and fill the prescription. When I go to pick up the prescription I find that they would not honor the price however they did discount it some. It was the last refill remaining on the prescription and being tired of being misled and lied to I decided to give Kroger to shot at honoring the price. Of course Kroger like other pharmacies in the area I live in require prescription be transfers to them before they will give you a price. How convenient! And of course Costco counted the prescription I did not pick up as the final refill and there wonderful automated personal high-quality automated service text me and asked me if I would like for them to contact my doctor. I said yes and then ask Kroger to have the prescription transferred to them. That was three days ago and I still haven’t heard a word from Kroger. Kroger did admit to me that they have to have the prescription before they could give me a price and that it doesn’t always match what the app says that they will sell it for. More smoke and mirrors, more bait and switch. Don’t waste your time with this app!
94CamaroZ28 - How to save a ton of money
I haven’t had health insurance in over five years, maybe longer and I have four different prescriptions a month as a result of being in a car accident and one of my doctors offices had a GoodRx card in it. Well I picked it up and then went on the website and looked up the prices I could have been paying for medication.. GoodRX has saved me more money than I could imagine, just recently it started saving me $208 a month on just one prescription!! That’s $2,500 a year in savings!! Over the last four or five years it has probably saved me over close to $7,500!! Download this now if you have multiple prescriptions or don’t have insurance like me and start saving now! The only tiny and sometimes annoying catch is that you may have to go out of your way a bit to get the best price but I’m willing to drive an extra 25 minutes to save $208/month on just one prescription. All in all GoodRx is an amazing program or whatever/however it works I’m not sure but if you require medication download this app and start saving now!!
Forbiddencitychineserestaurant - Awesome App!!! Saved 93%
Healthcare in the USA is awfully expensive. I’ve been paying $2380 for a 90 day supply of my antiviral hepatitis B medication for years. I have a $7000 deductible to meet yearly before my Blue Cross Blue Shield pays 80 % until $13,500 out of pocket cap. One doctor mentioned about GoodRx. So I downloaded the app to see if it can safe me a few dollars. To my surprise, the app showed coupon prices ranging from $164 to $545 for a 90 day supply of this pill from various pharmacies. I was skeptical about it. But I wanted to try anyway. I transferred my prescription from Rite Aid to Safeway as Safeway has the lowest coupon price of $164. The Safeway pharmacist told me it’s $2385 for my 90 day pills before I showed her my GoodRx coupon. I showed her my app coupon and asked if it works. She said “IT WORK “and I paid $164 for the same medication that would have costed me $2385. It’s a 93% Saving. I don’t understand how and why this happened. But I’ve been using GoodRx app for all my family members’ medications. I told all my friends and relatives about it. GoodRx App is a life saving tool for a lot of people. Thank You GoodRx !!!!!
Bigshep81 - GoodRx should change their name to OutstandingRx!!
About a year or so ago, I lost my job and my medical insurance for a short period of time until I was eligible for insurance at my new job. I had to have my doctor change the medication I take from an extended release form to an instant release form because the cash price was cheaper for the generic. Not a big deal but I preferred the other med because it was better overall for my daily medicinal needs.
Thank goodness I only paid the “cash price” for one month at the local small town pharmacy next to my doctor’s office. I was fortunate enough to hear about GoodRx on a various internet ad and looked into it. This app took my cash price from $136 down to $15 for the 7 months that I had no employer insurance! Thank you for saving me money during my times of unemployment and times of waiting for employee prescription insurance coverage!!!! GoodRx is truly a financial lifesaver during hard times and can even save you money against your regular insurance so always compare prices with GoodRx before filling any new medications!
Need-to-know - Good RX is a welcome drug price negotiator!
For about a decade now, I’ve been using this internet site and app as my go-to expert consultant for strait forward information about the meds I take, normal dosing parameters, potential side-effects, alternate drug options, and price comparison.
The app informs me of various options for the meds I depend upon, and it lets me know when genetics become available, where to shop when my health plan options are more costly, and helps me formulate practical questions to ask my pharmacist, insurance carrier, and my primary care doc. It lets me have more control over the choices I make for my own health and well-being. I no longer depend solely on my doctor and pharmacist, because GoodRx has become my “outside-the-box” expert advisor, which lets me take a more active role in my own health choices. Over time I’ve been able to try different newer med combination options to discover which regimen seems to work best for me at a lower, more reasonable cost. This would not have been possible had there not been a readily available expert advisor like GoodRx.
SAMANTHARAYNY - LOVED GOODRX FOR OVER A DECADE
From scraping pennies together in college to real ongoing mental health maintenance; trying to hold it together as you get to the point in your health journey of dollar signs to see if you can now “afford” the medication you’ve been prescribed…. GoodRX is like, that hug you need right then, and beyond that… it’s that true “American” idea where all is just and free that you really see no one doing anywhere else here. I actually have *Gold* GoodRx and in place of addtl prescription riders on my health insurance as it always beats everything I pay $$$ for. It’s kind of unbelievable and a huge testament to this company, that over a decade later it’s still the same god send as it was when I first discovered it. It was actually a pharmacist who saw I couldn’t afford the ~$300 script; one GoodRX coupon and my eyes in disbelief later, it was like $8. Changed my views on MHC and affordability. Recommend to any and everyone who needs it, which is any and everyone. Thank you GoodRX, from the bottom of my heart-!
Happy fbooker - Disappointed in gold
Beyond disappointed in this company and the way I have been treated. I have had my RX canceled five times. What they don’t realize is that if you are not an advocate for yourself you won’t get your medicine. It’s a real shame that their technology is good from a consumer facing position but so is Pizza Huts. These aren’t pizzas, these are RX. There are no supervisors available and their contact is all done through emails with no way for them to call their partners that fill their RX on their behalf. They use a company called True Pill. When I called them they seemed confused as well too.
The people that answer the phones are very nice. It’s interesting how they say you are being transferred to a human being. Wonderful, except they can give answers. The only call I got back was at 6:00 AM. Their software isn’t even good enough to determine that I am on the west coast and they should wait to call and not wake people up. Today is Jan 20 and my order was from two weeks ago and it’s still not filled. All they tell you is we are sorry for the inconvenience. Not delivering meds is more than an inconvenience. They should shut their ops down until they fix this problem. Pretty scary that they are operating in this manner.
Laura buck - How do they do it??!!
I don’t know how they do it but OMG it works!! I needed an eczema cream for a small spot on my foot. My dermatologist called in an ointment to CVS. My insurance did not cover it & would have cost me $233. I don’t have $233 to blow on a med that might not work so I had dr call in something else. Once again new script was not covered by insurance and would have cost $180. A nurse friend recommended trying this app and months later after the eczema spread and became painful did I finally try. I called CVS to find out the name of the meds, typed them into the app & long story short, RiteAid has it for the lowest price, $27 for the first script, ( the 2nd one Dr called in was more expensive). I called RiteAid, they called CVS to transfer the script & when I picked it up I brought my phone with the GoodRx info & it only cost me $12!!! I SAVED $221. How??? I don’t know & I don’t care but from now on when I go to any doctor and they call in a medicine, I will ask what it is, CHECK THE APP, then tell them where to call it so I can get the lowest price through GoodRX!!
Kacemacee - Don’t Miss The Entertaining Updates😂
As for the practicality and usefulness of this app, it’s great. I’ve saved hundreds of dollars. However I only came to write a review after reading another one of the “what’s new” updates. I just wanted to give props to whoever is in charge of running this part of the app. If you haven’t already, PLEASE take the time to read “what’s new” when there’s an update for this app, I promise you won’t be disappointed. 99% of apps will just say something basic like “bug fixes” for each update. However the last few times I’ve looked at GoodRX’s “what’s new” it’s always a hilarious story tied into what is in the update. The most recent being the connection of telehealth to Wonkavision.. that’s so funny and creative! Whoever you are you may have a future in creative writing/blogging if this current role doesn’t work out for you. Anyway I just wanted to say thank you for bringing humor into the world of pesky apps and updates, and thanks for the laughs!
Scruffledfuzz - Literally saved me over $100...
Like the title says. This app literally saved me over $100 the first time I used it! No joke! I had to go to another pharmacy but it wasn’t a problem.
When I first went to get some new meds filled, I was shocked that they were about $118. To us, that’s a lot. The young man, pharmacy tech saw that in our eyes, and said “That’s a lot of money, most doctors have no idea how much these meds cost!” We just didn’t have the money for that and were kind of embarrassed, he saw that too. So on he went, “Maybe you could get these later and check out this app called Good Rx, I’ve seen people save 30 bucks, 40, even $100 once, that was crazy! Can’t promise anything but it’s worth checking out.” Relieved I nodded and said “yes thank you! I will definitely check that out.” We left and downloaded the app and did find the SAME meds a little over $100 less than without the app! That saved me from not being able to buy my meds, to, buying them and having money left over! GoodRx IS great!
TheStrongestLimaBean - Great app, but having trouble saving prescriptions lately
I’ve used this app for years and even upgraded to Gold and everything was amazing, but a month ago I tried to save a new prescription and it said I had reached my limit, which I didn’t know there was one. This is something I’d be willing to be okay with because I use the app for my wife, my aunt, and my own medicines and I understand that’s a lot prescriptions, but the problem is the new prescription was a replacement so I had already unsaved what it was replacing and the number of saved prescriptions would not have been different than it was before. It’s not letting me save any new prescriptions anymore. I’ve tried to email GoodRx about this but I only got an automated email saying to look at their troubleshooting guide, which that was the first thing I did. This is the first problem with the app I’ve had in years, but it’s a pretty big one, as I have to manually look up the medicine every time I need to get the price. If someone could help I’d really appreciate it!
KimCov - INCREDIBLE SAVINGS—Better than insurance!
GoodRx has saved me a BUNDLE, and I don’t know where I would be without it! I have several severe medical issues, including rare genetic disorders, autoimmune diseases and complex medical conditions, all of which require medication(s) to manage their progression and/or symptoms. Without GOOD Rx, my meds would cost me a MINIMUM of $2,200-$2,700 per month, and that’s WITH my Rx insurance coverage!!! Using GoodRx, I pay between $325-$400 per month!! WOW! Without GoodRx, I would be unable to afford a majority of my medications; as a result, I would be hospitalized and suffering severe pain constantly. GoodRx has literally saved me from having to be hospitalized. I can’t praise GoodRx enough! Note: For those of you on maintenance medications (e.g. thyroid, heart, blood pressure, and other monthly meds), you should ABSOLUTELY get your Rxs filled in a 3mo quantity, as the savings for 3mo quantities are EVEN BETTER than the monthly savings. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GoodRx to everyone, regardless of your insurance coverage. GoodRx is a LIFESAVER!!!
Suzanne krat - Great! Better than some insurance plans!!
I have new prescription insurance. I’ve had two instances since January where my insurance required prior authorization. One medication I was already on for a year prior to the new insurance. The new insurance wanted a prior authorization and would only dispense one month at a time – as previous insurance allowed a three month supply of this medication. I ended up using Good RX and got my three month supply of medication at half the cost that I would’ve been paying with my new insurance and no prior authorization. Same medication. Second instance was – I sustained a rib fracture that I was taking Tylenol with codeine. To try a medicine that was not a narcotic, my doctor ordered Lidoderm patch. Here I am on a Friday at 4:30 PM and my insurance needs a prior authorization. If I had the prescription filled without The prior authorization they would’ve charged me $200! I got the prescription filled at Pick And Save using Good RX and got it filled for $45 -same day as ordered.
Larry-MT - Great app and great savings!!
At first I was not sure this was even legitimate. However, I decided what did I have to lose. My script was going to cost me over five hundred dollars, and I certainly could not afford that. My prescription insurance did not have my drug in their formulary. Looked it up on the Good Rx app and found it would be around one hundred with the coupon. I had the doctor send a new prescription and when I went to pick up, I handed them my phone with the coupon codes. Much to my surprise it all worked and I got the meds for the price shown in Good Rx. Since, I have used it to check prices on all my drugs. Had a second one that was expensive so I did a coupon for that in the app, and it worked as described and I saved money over my prescription insurance. I recommend everyone get the Good Rx app and start saving money too. This is an amazing app. It even notifies you of price changes in any of your meds!! Amazing—you will be amazed too!
Smoke Rise - Excellect app!
In several instances GoodRX costs are below my copay cost of medications in my prescription drug program, i. e. medicare plan D. This concerns me greatly as shouldn’t one’s plan D program drug costs be negotiated for lower costs for their customers? Are is it that these programs are cartels keeping drug costs high to enrich the companies at the expense of retired persons who have the most accumulated wealth in the US than any other group collectively? Thus, another means of wealth transfer from seniors to drug manufacturers and insurance companies. Or are the laws structured in the United States written and devised to benefit drug manufactures and insurance companies from competitively bidding and crossing state lines? Many of these drugs are distributed in other countries at extremely lower costs than what it cost US citizens.
I have not used GoodRX as of yet. However, I’m looking forward to using it in 2018 and the challenge of lowering my prescription costs.
Thank you to the stakeholders of GoodRX for your collaborative efforts in the development of this app.
Prov 23 - Unhappy CVS customer
Had problem with CVS pharmacy accepting coupon; called your help line for assistance; GoodRx agent was well
Informed, courteous, patient , and demonstrated willingness to help me; she spoke with pharmacy tech to resolve the issue. Despite excellent help from your agent and pharmacy tech reaching resolution that satisfied my coupon, the pharmacy tech did not fill my Rx as it was written and overcharged me. After a 50 minute discussion and wait, I accepted the 3ml btl of bimatoprost (15 day supply) despite the Rx for 30 day supply which would be the 5 ml btl which was exactly the coupon I had, my Drs Rx, and your agent supported. To continue protest with pharmacy tech was exhaustive and disregard for other patients waiting for their meds was not appropriate .
I will not be using CVS again. My Rx was filled incorrectly resulting in overpayment even with GoodRx coupon! Thought you should know about CVS disregard for coupon and incorrect prep of my Rx as well as excellent service by GoodRx agent!
Respectfully, Patricia Jordan
Skycat319 - Saves me LOT of money
GoodRx has been great!! I'm so glad that one of my doctors had recommended it to me a couple years ago. My insurance company would not cover one of my medications and that is when my doctor asked if I was familiar with GoodRx. It immediately saved me about $70 just on that one medication . I use it with Kroger Pharmacy and I've never had any issues with it. I now use it for many of my medications because it often pays more than the price that my insurance will. I also sign up for notifications from GoodRx because sometimes they will have a price change on one of your meds and it may be even lower . If Kroger rings it up and the it happens to be more than what I am showing , I can just show Kroger the new GoodRx card with the new price, they type in the number on it and they've always honored the price it states! I'm grateful that GoodRx is such a huge help with the cost of my medicines!
Nick Name (real user) - Prices have not been accurate once
While it is true that GoodRx will get you a much better price on prescriptions than you would get from The Cartel at full price, after using the coupons about 20 times, the price on the coupon has never been accurate in my experience. Most have only been a dollar or so higher than the coupon price, but a handful of times I have been told by pharmacists that the true price with the coupon is as much as 20 Times the price on the coupon. That was after downloading the coupon just minutes before trying to use it. Two pharmacists have told me that they have never seen GoodRx prices accurate at the point of sale. I use another app as well (won’t name because I don’t want to make this review appear to be an endorsement) and the prices have always been accurate. I will say that Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug offers all my prescriptions at a lower prices and with total transparency regarding the price. I would encourage people to try MCCPD before resorting to coupons, and I would also encourage people to download other coupon apps.
Lil Sho - Prescription needs done the right way!!!
Need I say more!?! GoodRx is the absolute best! They make expensive medicine probs go away. This is the best app ever and a big thank you to the people behind GoodRx. Thanks for caring and willing to help others afford to fill their prescriptions. You guys are amazing!
P.S. I have a sleeping problem and I have been trying all sorts of stuff that works a bit then stop so my doctor prescribed me Lunesta instead. I went to Walgreens to pick it up, was over 300$ for 30 1mg tablets then with my insurance it was like 200$, so opened my GoodRx app and now it was 100$ and I've never had the med yet so was like nope not paying that, and asked why are y'all so high compared to the other GoodRx prices and they said something about they're always higher than their competitors with GoodRx or any prescription savings discount card so that let me know not to go to them anymore lol. Albertsons or Costco it is from now on. The price was $24 with GoodRx...Thank You!!!😃
Mollycoddled - Savings are from buying Generic
I have been taking Synthroid for low thyroid for 30+ years. Thyroid medications must be taken in consistent doses at the same time (s) daily or the patient will experience side effects. Like many others I cannot take the generic alternative because the 25% variance that the FDA allows wreaks havoc from month to month as the dosages vary up to 25% above and below my prescribed dosage. A male co-worker agonized over his wife’s health issues for over a year. When I asked what her issues were, he said ‘it changes almost monthly. One month she is fine, the next she is depressed and tired, the next her heart is racing and she is angry and anxious. Plus her weight goes up & down so she is upset over that as well.’. Recognizing the symptoms, I asked if she takes thyroid medication & whether she takes generic meds.’. He answered yes to both. Long story short, his wife changed doctors, was prescribed Synthroid brand with a no generics stipulation and a couple weeks later husband and wife were happy. He continued to thank me regularly for the next few years for helping him get his happy wife back. Bottom line: choose brand vs. generic wisely.
Snef Alef - I wish I knew about this sooner...
Good Rx has helped me in two different ways.
First, I decided to drop my insurance since it’s super expensive and I only really use it for my birth control. Good Rx makes it so my birth control is less than $15/month which is totally worth it over spending hundreds of dollars on insurance.
Then this past week I got a UTI but did not want to go to the Urgent Care or hospital since I don’t have insurance. I used the Good Rx doctor consult feature to talk to a doctor to get a prescription for antibiotics since my UTI was not going away and I was suffering. I was nervous there would be hidden fees or that it would take forever but after filling out the survey I was immediately given a prescription and the cost was exactly as advertised. The entire process took about five minutes. When they give you the prescription you see the price of the medication at all of the pharmacies around you and you get to choose which place you want. They also automatically give you the Good Rx coupon if there is one. My antibiotics were only $15 and were filled and ready for pickup within 30 minutes of me talking to the doctor.
From the moment I decided to use the good RX doctor consult feature to the moment I was taking my first pill of antibiotics was under an hour and for a grand total of $55 without insurance or promo codes or anything.
Beana123456 - ProfessionalMom
Decades ago I use to have to do this manually .. as in look up each of the manufacture of each medication for 6 different family members and contact them or my doctor to see if they had a discount card and then try to get it pushed through my pharmacist and then through my insurance …. I love this app and my only real complaint (NOW) is no matter how many times that I have said “No thanks to the subscription option” it still asks me after every single action I take, making about half the time I’m using the app is spent w me declining the subscription option.
My other “compliant” is just a silly I wish this tool/app was around 20yrs ago bc this could have saved so much time & stress for me.
And finally I used to look forward to the silly updates but I guess they finally let the person go who made reading the update descriptions interesting & fun to read - which is a bummer. I’d vote to bring them back. Otherwise great app!
ER Chick - Uninsured Dream
I work in the emergency room, in a very low income area. The majority of people are on state funded insurance or uninsured. It's very frustrating when a patient needs a medication, and what I prescribe them is either not covered, or the patient can't afford it. Gone are the days of the four dollar lists. In my own family, we went from paying $10 for 90 days of thyroid medicine, to $30 for one month. Good Rx has been amazing!
A patient just the other day came back to the ER, because their doxycycline prescription, which used to be $4 everywhere, was $79. We were able to find it on Good Rx for $18, which he could afford.
Despite that most patients have no insurance, the majority of them have cell phones with internet (go figure). I can typically find a medication that will cover what they need at a reasonable rate with Good Rx. Saves me the hassle of a ton of phone calls later about patients saying they can't afford the medicine. Thank you to Good Rx!
#POWEROFPRAYER - 32 years old My husband.
Has had 3 strokes since July 2017.
Since we found a discussion, narrowing of the vein. Theres 4 ways to get blood to the brain were this is at blocks all other ways of blood supply so if this wall breaks down I will lose my husband. A stint is not an option it’s to high up and the vein wall is to weak. We are working with a wonderful team at IU Indianapolis. But as of our last CT scan with Dr. Sheer his neurologist, who is my husbands age 32, by the way, without him we would have no faith. Says he could see some fatty tissue forming,!healing it’s self,! Because no medication can heal this it can just help thin the blood give it a chance to heal. It has been up and down results. just keep taking your medication. Daniel does faithfully. So when I say medication.. we have 3 children 17, 7, and 1 1/2 LoL. We have used this app for all of prescriptions. Even tho he has insurance 20$ per script.
We are getting all 6 for 20$...
I hope this review helped.
Chaplain Howard - Costco would not honor coupon
I had been taking my prescriptions to Costco for 6 months and had no issues with them accepting coupons from the GoodRx app. On my last visit last month they told me that they had the coupon codes for my medications from GoodRx in their system and there was no need to show them the coupons every time I picked up my prescriptions. Today my wife went in to pick up my prescriptions and was told they were no longer accepting the GoodRx coupon because I have existing healthcare insurance. Purchasing the medication at my HMO pharmacy is too expensive and this is why I got the GoodRx app to save money. Don’t know why all of a sudden they are not allowing me to use GoodRx. Will no longer be able to use Costco pharmacy as it is charging me same price as Kaiser. At least Kaiser mails my prescriptions to my home, using Costco, I have to make two trips to get my prescriptions. Something very wrong.
1outof1 - Great savings total life saver!
GoodRx is amazing we have saved hundreds of dollars on our prescriptions already! With a high deductible at the first of the year like most plans have we typically end up spending thousands of dollars on our prescriptions. My self and my husband both have health issues and several prescriptions to fill each month. Typically the first of the year is very hard for us due to deductibles being due. This year thanks to GoodRx we were not only able to afford our prescriptions but able to get everything instead of only the couple we could afford. They truly have been a life saver for our family!!! Thank you GoodRx you are wonderful! Now hopefully you can find more Rx companies that will work with you on the price of diabetic supplies like Insulin this was the only item I was forced not to get due to it still being $400. Everything else was an amazing price other than my Insulin.
Kmusic1 - Often beats insurance prices!
I have been using GoodRx for several years and recently decided to go all out to join GoodRx Gold. I’ve rarely had difficulties with prices at the pharmacy and then it was due to pharmacy error. GoodRx is always available to answer questions or “go to bat” on your behalf if necessary. With some meds that I could get for a bit less through my insurance mail order program (3 months at a time,) this program is much easier, faster, and I still save money. Plus they don’t place limitations on quantities like insurance companies are notorious for doing! They allow your doctor to make those decisions for you - as it should be. They even offer discounts for some medications for my pets! The app is straight forward and simple as well. Needless to say, I love using GoodRx and highly recommend it. It’s the only discount card you should ever need.
