So, your doctor has prescribed you a medication. You look at the prescription and your eyes fall upon the name and you have no idea how to pronounce it. You start to wonder if you can afford it. Will insurance cover it? If insurance does cover part of it, will you be able to afford the rest? Why do doctors all have such bad handwriting? Why do they make medicine names so hard to pronounce? How on earth are you going to afford another prescription? Time to look into prescription discount cards and prescription coupons. Here’s how.
The first step to saving on your prescriptions is to search for the name of your medicine with RxLess. Whether you’re looking for a medication name like levothyroxine or something simple like Lipitor. All you have to do is type in the name. Once you have the right medication, you select the prescribed form, strength and quantity. Then, scroll down to find the discount for your desired retail pharmacy. If you want to find pharmacies in your local area, simply type in your zip code under location and click ‘Find Nearby Pharmacies’. Once you’ve found your discount, you simply click on it and can then send the card or coupon to yourself or save it. You don’t have to provide any personal information or pay anything for the card.
Once you have your discount card or coupon, you head to the pharmacy where you want to get your prescription filled. When you pick up your prescription, show the pharmacist your savings card or your prescription coupon. They’ll calculate your savings and you’ll pay the discounted cost. If you’re insured, you cannot use your savings card with your insurance. But you can use your discount card instead of your insurance if the price is lower. Using the card will not affect your insurance eligibility.
One of the great things about prescription discount cards is that you can continue to use the card. It does not expire, and you can use the same card for refills or another prescription. So, you save now and in the future. You may want to go back to RxLess to have a look at the pricing, though. Prices may change, so you’ll want to be sure you’re getting the lowest price possible.
Prescription discount cards can help you keep your prescription medication costs down. If you’re looking to save some money on your medications, head to our site and see what discounts may be offered.
