How to Save Money on Prescriptions

how+save+money+prescriptionsHave you ever had to call around to multiple pharmacies to find the best price on one of your prescriptions? This has happened to me and it’s always at the worst time – when someone is sick. Thankfully, there is a solution for how to save money on prescriptions.

We all like to save money, but it’s often unrealistic to take the time to call each individual pharmacy to check prices. With searchRx, I’m able to search for discounted prices on prescriptions in my area. I wish I had known this past summer to download the searchRx app to my iPhone instead of driving to three different pharmacies (with two sick and cranky kids in the car) while trying to get my son’s asthma medication at a reasonable cost. Android users can download the searchRx app here.

Working as a registered nurse in reproductive endocrinology for over a decade, I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been asked by a patient to help figure out where to find a particular prescription at the lowest cost. Whether it’s during treatment, a chronic medical condition, or an acute illness that requires medication, searchRx offers a way to find real discounts on FDA approved medication with free coupons.

The reason I’m such a fan of this process is because you just search for the medication, print out, email, or receive the coupon via a text message and present it at the pharmacy. I appreciate services that make life easier and there is no catch. No need to jump through hoops of fire, no need for personal data, and no secret decoder ring to access this discount. Check out this video below that explains in detail the process with searchRx.

I also appreciate that I don’t have to register to use the service. The savings can make a substantial difference to anyone who has to pay out-of-pocket costs for prescriptions. After I used searchRx personally for my son’s prescription, I began to recommend it to my client’s undergoing fertility treatment. The true test came this past week when I showed it to five family members that are all in the age range of 70+. The crowd with more life experience often has daily medication regimens. Price shopping can be a hobby, but it’s often not feasible to call or travel to different pharmacies. After checking out the searchRx website, they all agreed it was easy-to-navigate and understand. That is a huge win when it comes to a population that often could use a little help.

Without going into specific details, I’ll just say to the ladies out there who have ever had a UTI (urinary tract infection) and needed a prescription, there is no time to waste and price check the medication. Even in that type of situation when a medication is needed STAT, this service can still come in handy.

It’s rare to find an opportunity that can serve everyone at all stages of life, but searchRx has managed to do it. It’s a money-saving option as a mom with two young kids, working as a registered nurse trying to minimize the stress for my patients, and offers a way to help make life easier for elderly family members.
