Can a member use a GoodRx/Discount Card coupon if they have insurance?

Yes. Your insurance will typically offer either a co-insurance price on your prescription or a set copay ($5, $10, etc.). Your insurance’s formulary determines what prescriptions your plan will cover and the Tier the medication is on will determine your copay or co-insurance amount. Sometimes a GoodRx/Discount Card coupon will be lower than this amount.

Here are two things to consider when deciding whether to fill your prescription with your insurance or by using a GoodRx/Discount Card coupon

Is this drug covered by your insurance plan? If so, how much will it cost?

  • Insurance companies use “formularies” which list how much they will pay for a specific prescription. Formularies divide drugs into “tiers.” Tier 1 drugs may have a $10 co-pay, Tier 2 may be $20 and so on. For many brand-name drugs, your plan may cover just a percentage of a negotiated price. 

Have you met your deductible?

  • Many insurance plans have a separate prescription deductible you must meet before they’ll pay for your medications. Other plans have a high deductible for all of your care before they will pay anything. In these cases, you’ll usually still get a discounted rate, but it may not be as low as the GoodRx/Discount Card coupon price. 

Why can GoodRx/Discount Card coupons sometimes beat my copay?

Benefit design and network rates differ amongst Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs). GoodRx/Discount Card coupons let the member reduce their out-of-pocket expenses by accessing the rates of another PBM, but potentially sacrificing the contribution toward meeting a deductible.

What are the most commonly prescribed drugs with GoodRx?

This varies over time, but amoxicillin, atorvastatin, gabapentin, prednisone and tramadol are a few of the most commonly prescribed.
