GoodRx and Medicare Part D

Some of my clients that rightfully have secured a Medicare Part D Prescription Plan also sometimes use the GoodRx service. Here’s a brief overview on the relationship of Good Rx and Medicare Part D.

While you can use a GoodRx discount instead of your prescription insurance or medicare if the cost is lower, you cannot however combine the GoodRx discount with your insurance or any federal or state-funded program such as Medicare or Medicaid. GoodRx is not insurance. 

If you choose to use a GoodRx discount, it’s important to ask the pharmacist not to run your prescription through your insurance or Medicare (This tends to happen often). Ask that your pharmacist use your GoodRx coupon or membership to process the transaction as cash instead.
