If you rely on a medication that keeps rising in price, you should check out prescription drug apps. They can help you comparison shop among nearby pharmacies for the best price.
GoodRx is perhaps the most well known of all the prescription drug apps. It’s accepted at 70,000 pharmacies nationwide — by far the largest network of participating pharmacies.
However, SingleCare has been gaining in popularity recently thanks to a lot of TV ads. With 35,000 participating pharmacies, its network is only half the size of GoodRx.
Unlike its two main competitors, RxSaver by RetailMeNot doesn’t give specifics about how large its pharmacy network is. It simply says it’s accepted at “thousands of pharmacies nationwide,” including CVS, Costco, Kroger, Walgreens and Walmart, among others.
WellRx isn’t necessarily well known, but it has a large network of more than 65,000 participating pharmacies.
Finally, Blink Health also advertises a network of 35,000 participating pharmacies nationwide.
However, Blink Health structures its pricing a bit differently than its competitors. It has a Home Delivery Price, an Everyday Low Price and a Blink Smart Deal Price. For the purposes of this comparison the Everyday Low Price was used because that’s the price available at any of Blink Health’s participating pharmacies.
There are a lot of prescription drug apps out there. If you only want to download one or two to try, I’d recommend RxSaver and GoodRx for the reasons noted above.
However, if there’s one particular medication that’s really eating up your budget, you can always check the price of that drug on each of the apps’ websites before making a decision about which app(s) to download.
Meanwhile, if you want the absolute best price each time you get a prescription, remember to re-check prices when you refill the medication every 30 or 90 days. If you check every time you refill, you could find a better price at another pharmacy.
