Prices Are Changing on GoodRx

Heads up! As you’ve probably seen in the news, many changes are happening at pharmacies and drug manufacturers. The result is that prices and discounts for your prescriptions may be changing.
Starting in November, prices are changing at Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Kroger. It’s not all bad though—some drug prices are up, but others have come down.
What can I do?
For some drugs, the cost for your next refill may be slightly higher or lower. You may also need a new coupon to receive the biggest savings.
To make sure you still get the lowest price available, simply check prices on GoodRx and print out a new coupon when you next refill. If you have our mobile app, just ask your pharmacist to enter the new coupon information you’ll find on the app.
I found a new, better price elsewhere. How do I switch pharmacies?

If you find that a new pharmacy has a lower price, it’s easy to transfer your prescription. Simply call your new pharmacy and ask them to transfer your prescription for you. Remember to print a new coupon if it’s a discount price.

As a reminder, we always recommend checking GoodRx every time you fill (or refill). We never want there to be any surprises when you pick up your prescription. Our prices are updated daily, and it’s always possible that another pharmacy or coupon may offer you a lower price the next time you fill.
