Today I want to let you in on one of the best and most helpful apps I’ve found recently. This thing has seriously saved my behind on more than one occasion, I’ve been using it for about two months and I must say, it has saved me at least three hundred dollars (if not more) in prescription costs in that time.
GoodRx can be accessed via an android or iphone app, or through your web browser and is a great resource for anyone who doesn’t have insurance but still needs to buy prescription medications.
It works by allowing you to search for the medication you intend to purchase and entering your zipcode, and then the search engine provides a list of the closest pharmacies by medication cost, lowest on top. You can easily change the type of medication you want (tablets, dissolvable, capsules), or between generic and name brand to compare prices.
GoodRx also provides coupons for many medications, allowing you to receive an even lower price at the register. You can email the coupons to your phone, text them to your phone, or print them. I’ve used this feature at least five times and always have been surprised by the discount I’ve received!
I can’t even begin to describe how much time and energy this service has saved me. I used to call around to all the pharmacies in the area to check the prices of my prescriptions, and now I don’t have to! On top of that, I can use the app in my provider’s office to search for the medications they want to prescribe and see if I can actually afford them before getting to the pharmacy and being disappointed.
For anyone who doesn’t have insurance but needs to buy prescription medications, I would highly recommend this product. It is quick, it is easy, and best of all -it’s free!
