GoodRx, America’s #1 source of prescription drug savings, announced today a new partnership with Benefitfocus to offer deep Rx discounts via GoodRx Gold to Benefitfocus members and their employees. As a result of this partnership, GoodRx’s premium prescriptions savings program, GoodRx Gold, which saves members up to 90% on their medication costs, will be embedded directly into Benefitfocus’ member-facing platform and made available to employers who have a large subset of employees with little to no health benefits.
“We launched GoodRx Gold as an immediate, affordable solution to the drug cost crisis and increase in high-deductible health plans that leave many patients on the hook for the high cost of prescriptions,” said Jim Sheninger, Pharmacy Strategy Officer, GoodRx. “And we’re thrilled to be partnering with Benefitfocus to make Gold easily accessible to millions more American families, many of whom don’t currently have access to health benefits or are under-insured.”
GoodRx Gold is a premium offering from GoodRx that provides up to 90% off on prescription medications at thousands of pharmacies across the nation. Benefitfocus members receive a one month free trial of GoodRx Gold, with an option for employees to then either join the program at the $9.99 monthly subscription fee, or for employers to share some of that monthly cost with their workers.
Benefitfocus members will have access to the following benefits via GoodRx Gold:
- Savings of up to 90% on common prescriptions, with prices so low they often beat out insurance copays
- More than 1,000 popular prescriptions for under $10
- Six family members (pets, too) covered under just one, $9.99 monthly membership
“Our aim, through this partnership, is to help Americans pay less for the prescriptions they need to stay healthy, and provide them with some much needed peace of mind about affording their medications, moving forward,” added Jim Sheninger.
Benefitfocus members can expect this partnership to launch this coming Fall, in time for open enrollment.
