We started GoodRx with a simple question: Could we make prescriptions affordable for all Americans? Before we could help people save, we needed to see if we could find current, accurate drug prices (it’s harder than it looks!). Then, we set out to find discounts, coupons, savings tips, membership programs, patient assistance programs and anything… Read More

Epipens. Sovaldi. Tysabri. Acthar. Harvoni. Every month, it seems, there’s fresh outrage–from president Trump, the Congress, in the media, and among the public–over the soaring cost of prescription drugs.    With good reason: The cash price for the average brand-name prescription drug has increased 48% since 2013. These increases put desperately needed treatments out of reach… Read More

Nobody ever said doing good deeds would be easy. As we watched Hurricane Harvey bear down on Texas last week, we knew that GoodRx needed to do something to help. Houston is the fourth largest city in the USA and many people who live in the area struggle to afford their prescriptions—and that was before a… Read More

At GoodRx, we’ve spent the last 6 years trying to do one thing—make prescriptions more affordable for Americans. We’re proud to say that we’ve helped millions of Americans save more than $2 billion, but that’s just a beginning—after all, Americans spend more than $400 billion on prescriptions each year! Prescriptions – especially brand-name drugs—remain too… Read More

For years, GoodRx has been telling Americans to compare prices and shop around. With the support of millions of Americans, GoodRx has just negotiated even greater savings at a number of pharmacy chains. There’s never been a better time to shop around than now. Prices at many pharmacies will be changing in February and March—which… Read More

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the controversy regarding EpiPen pricing a few months back. Why people got very upset about EpiPen prices: EpiPen is a life-saving injector which provides immediate relief to severe allergic reactions.
