The rising prices of prescription drugs have left millions of people feeling sick. Even with a health insurance plan, the prices can still be expensive. Don’t worry, finding ways to save money on prescriptions is possible. For those of you that are feeling the pinch, here are a few free apps that can help you save money on your prescriptions the next time you visit your local pharmacy.
Use comparison websites and apps
One of the easiest ways to find the best and lowest price of your prescription medications is to do a little bit of comparison shopping on comparison websites. Examples of comparison websites include GoodRx and LowestMed.
GoodRx provides free discount coupons that allow you to receive a discounted price on your prescriptions. You can even sign up for their FREE discount card and have it mailed to you! Finding coupons for your prescriptions on GoodRx is really simple. First, go to the website or download the app. Second, use the search tool to search for your medication and enter your zip code to find the nearest pharmacies. Once you find the coupon that you want to use, all you have to do is print the coupon off or display the coupon on your phone, and present it to a pharmacy associate at your local pharmacy. Download the free GoodRx iPhone app or Android app onto your phone today to help you save money on prescriptions.
LowestMed is another free app that offers free coupons to reduce the price of your prescriptions. If you do not have insurance, the free discount card (that you can sign up for and have mailed to you) and coupons found on the Lowestmed app and website never expire and can be used every time you pick up your prescription. Go to the Lowestmed website or download the app, and enter the medication that you are looking for into the search bar. Also, enter your zip code in order to find the pharmacies in your area. When you find the right coupon for you, print the coupon or display the coupon on your phone to have your discount applied to your prescription.

OneRx is the only prescription savings app that allows you to enter your insurance information manually and calculate the amount of your copay for your prescription. OneRx will compare your copay to discount coupons to ensure that you are getting the lowest price possible. If you are not insured, OneRx offers a free discount card and coupons that can possibly help you save up to 90% on your prescription medications. To have your discount applied to your prescription, show the coupon/card to a pharmacy associate at your local pharmacy. Download the OneRx iPhone app or Android app onto your phone to help you save money on prescriptions.
Please Note: Discount cards / coupons cannot be used alongside insurance. You either have to pay the insurance copay price or pay the discount source’s price. Insurance and prescription discount cards or coupons cannot be used together.
