Reduce Your Patients’ Prescription Costs
The GoodRx Pro for Healthcare Professionals iPhone and Android app provides immediate benefits for you and your patients. Use it and your patients may pay up to 80% less for their medications. In 2016, the American Academy of Family Physicians named it one of the top five 5-star apps.1
The app also makes it easy for you to keep a reference list of the agents (and their costs) you prescribe most often. You can research prices at more than 70,000 US pharmacies—and opt-in to receive news and updates. The content on the app is updated every week with both information and available discounts.
This can make a big difference to your patients and overcome price as a barrier to filling prescriptions.1 The free discount cards and coupons never expire. You can easily order refills with GoodRx discount savings cards.
In addition to the version for healthcare providers, patients can use the app to find manufacturer coupons and store discounts. They can maintain a list of their medications and set up alerts to remind them to take medications. There’s also a “pill identifier” feature in case a patient has a pill but can’t remember its name.
A New York Times review of the app cited a study by GoodRx that evaluated the prices of 500 common drugs in 30 US cities2 and found significant differences in costs. This is important as consumers pay higher co-pays—sometimes between cities in the same region. For example, the generic version of Paxil had a cost of $46.94 in Cleveland. In Columbus, the cost was $20.87.
