Do Prescription Drug Cards Really Work?

With so many scams in the news, you might be skeptical of prescription drug cards that promise to save you money at the pharmacist.

We can assure you that the BetterRxCard has helped thousands of families pay less for their medications. Best of all, it is free, and you can start to use it as soon as you print or download it.

How It Works

By partnering with pharmaceutical companies and thousands of pharmacies throughout the United States, we can provide discounts on most FDA-approved drugs. The savings could be up to 75% or, in some cases, even higher.

You may wonder why companies and pharmacies would want to offer steep discounts to their customers. The short answer is to help people afford the medications they need, without having to jump through hoops.

Getting your BetterRxCard is easy. You can access it right from your computer or mobile device and you don’t have to reveal any personal information or answer medical questions.

Your physician doesn’t have to know either, so it’s confidential and private. Unlike insurance, there are no limitations based on pre-existing conditions, age or place of residence.

To get your savings, you simply print out the prescription drug card or download the BetterRX App to your mobile device.

All of the major pharmacy chains, including Walgreens, and CVS , participate. You will want to make sure your preferred local pharmacy is among the 63,000 participants in the BetterRxCard program. Once you have confirmed that your pharmacy will honor your card, show it to the pharmacist the next time you pick up your prescriptions and save money. It’s that simple! If you have tried a discount card in the past, be sure to also try BetterRX, as some of our discounts are higher.

Who Can Use It

Because your card contains no personal information and there are no restrictions or limitations on its use, everyone in your family and your friends can save money with your card…or get their own. Even your pets’ medications could be less expensive (these are limited to prescriptions that are the same drugs as human medications).

It doesn’t matter if you have insurance, are underinsured or completely uninsured. Everyone benefits from the BetterRxCard.

How to Save the Most

There are ways to best take advantage of your potential savings with the card.

If you do have at least some insurance coverage, the prescription drug card can’t be combined with your insurance. Don’t worry, though. That only means that you have more options to be able to realize the most savings. In some cases, self-pay with the discount card may be less than your insurance co-pay.

Use our drug pricing tool so that you can compare our discounted price to your insurance copay amount. Choose the option that saves you more money: the BetterRxCard or your insurance copay. Then show your discount card or your insurance card, whichever is the better option for you, when you pick up your prescription.

If you are underinsured, or your insurance doesn’t cover your prescribed medication, the BetterRxCard can help you avoid paying the full “cash price,” which could be very expensive. We provide access to more than 60,000 drugs, including prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.

For those with no insurance, the card can benefit you and your family, as well.

You have nothing to lose, only money to save, so sign up for your card today.
