The other day I pulled up to the Walgreens pharmacy drive thru window to pick up my prescription. The pharmacist sent out something to the car in the drive thru window next to me and the next thing I hear is $399.00. In shock, I looked at my oldest daughter. She looks back at me. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones who thought the pharmacist misspoke as the gentlemen in the car said, “What did you say? $399?! The pharmacist confirmed that was indeed the amount. We all know that prescriptions can be really expensive so wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to save on them. What if the way to save on them could even be less than your co-pay? I discovered that there is a way to make prescriptions a little more affordable using ScriptSave® WellRx.
About ScriptSave WellRX and How It Saved Our Family Money
ScriptSave WellRX is an opportunity to save money on your prescriptions whether you have insurance or not. Medical costs are expensive and whether it is an unexpected prescription for an antibiotic because your child has an ear infection or a monthly medication you need to take for example to treat your diabetes it can all add up. ScriptSave WellRX is a discount prescription program which helps you save money on your prescriptions through working with over 62,000 pharmacies creating a more affordable option to purchasing the medications you and your family needs.

ScriptSave WellRX is available as a card or an app which you present to your pharmacy just like you would your insurance card. Think of it like a loyalty card, but instead of having to spend money to save money you actually get to save your money right then and there!
It is free to join, so you haven’t spent a penny. Not like some restaurant discount cards where you have to buy the card first in order to save in the future. And while we are all about saving for tomorrow, we would prefer to have the money right now, thank you very much.
Easily available online or app
My doctor gave me a prescription for medication I take on a regular basis. Finding out that even after my insurance benefits that it was $75.00 she suggested a discount card that she had in her office. This was my first introduction to a prescription discount card. I headed to the pharmacy to use it and my prescription was only $25.00! Now this is savings that I can really appreciate.
However, there was a small catch. I could only use it for three months. Then I had to go back to the doctor to get another card, even though my prescription was for 6 months. What does this mean? I’m out another office visit copay just to get the discount card for my prescriptions.
That is an example of how these discounts SHOULD NOT work. With ScriptSave WellRX you don’t have to get the discount card from your doctor. You can get it online and carry a card around with you or download it to your tablet, iPhone, or smartphone from iTunes or Google Play store.
Then when you go to the pharmacy just show your card (available to you via text, email and printable) or on your app to get an average savings of 45% with a potential savings of up to 80%!
The ScriptSave WellRx pricing tool (available online and in-app) is a great way to find the best rate within a given zip code. Use it prior to every refill.
I hate pulling up to the pharmacy drive thru or walking up to the counter to find out how much my medication may cost after the doctor calls it into the pharmacy. Don’t you? We called around as suggested by my doctor to find the best price. She also recommended that we ask for the “cash” price and the insurance price after co-pay as many times the cash price can be lower than the insurance price even after the copay. Guess what we found out when we tried to find out the cost of a prescription. That pharmacy’s contracts with insurance companies will often prevent the pharmacist from volunteering information about when the cash-price for a drug is lower than the insurance price. With the ScriptSave WellRX app I know the price before I buy the medication and void “sticker shock.”
Let’s face it. All of us have something else that could be done with the money we can save on prescription medications. Right now it’s back to school season and I know that we have a LOT of back to school supplies to purchase.
Even dinner out after hours of shopping for school supplies.
Or what about making that credit card payment for summer camp?
Or start now and save money each month towards next summer’s vacation.
