Use RxLess Even With Medicare

Updated on August 18th, 2021

Save up to 88% on your medications

Unfortunately, prescription drug costs can be excessively expensive, and they tend to inflate over time due to a lack of price regulation. Moreover, your insurance may not always cover the type of medication you need. Things get even more complicated if you have Medicare and face the "donut hole," or coverage gap, in your insurance plan.

Fortunately, there is a way to save big on prescription costs, even with insurance. With RxLess, you can use a discount card instead of Medicare to save on some of the biggest (and most expensive) drugs across over 70,000 pharmacies in the U.S. and its territories.

How does RxLess work?

RxLess does the heavy lifting on savings for you by searching for the best offers across millions of medication prices. From here, program administrators negotiate with pharmacies and manufacturers alike to settle on the best discounts for any individual who uses the service.

For RxLess users, the process is very straightforward and pain-free. After receiving the prescription from your doctor, you simply search for your medication on the RxLess website. Whether you are prescribed drugs like atorvastatin or metformin, you can easily find it there. After you locate your required medication, you will enter some basic information, including the quantity, strength, and form of the medicine, as well as your zip code.

You'll then be shown your price offers across various pharmacies near your location. Click on your desired discount, save the offer and head over to your pharmacy of choice.

Can RxLess help me with my Medicare coverage gap?

A common question about RxLess is whether those with Medicare can use the program discounts. The answer is absolutely! You can ask your pharmacist for a price comparison on your prescription by comparing the drug cost with your insurance and with RxLess and pay whichever one is lower. You cannot use the RxLess offers to offset an insurance copay.

RxLess is especially useful if you use Medicare and find yourself in the coverage gap. This gap, also known as the "donut hole," is when your drug plan reaches a temporary limit on what they will cover. During this period, you will typically have to pay more for your prescriptions, which can add up tremendously. RxLess can provide you with huge discounts so that you can get the medications you need without breaking the bank. It’s important to note that the discounted amount paid will not automatically count towards your deductible. You will need to speak with your insurance carrier to find out if they accept after-purchase receipts for reimbursement.
