Getting the Lowest Prescription Costs with WellRX

While there’s no cost to use the WellRX card or mobile app, you still have to pay for your prescriptions. Medication costs and the discount from WellRX vary depending on which pharmacy you use.

To ensure you get the best discounts on your prescriptions:

  • Shop around. It’s a good idea to compare drug prices before choosing a pharmacy to fill your prescription. Pharmacies may have vastly different prices for the same medications, even generic ones. Use ScriptSave WellRX’s pharmacy search tool to compare participating pharmacies nearby and find the lowest price on your prescriptions.
  • Check price comparisons frequently. The price of drugs can change daily. So while you may save more at one pharmacy today, the situation may be reversed tomorrow. You can get the most out of your WellRX discount by diligently watching prices on the drugs you need.

Just read a previous review that started, "Why did this card get 5 Stars?"... so I felt compelled to add my own review (and response to that question). Here's why I give WellRx 5 stars... My prescription went from $99 per month to less $20 per month - that's more than 80% off my monthly cost and I don't need to do anything.

I read a review somewhere else that said something like "saved me $100s already this year and it's only March 1st!" I'm in EXACTLY the same situation. AMAZING! When I signed up, they told me they couldn't help every patient with every prescription, but they pointed out that it costs nothing to give it a try. If they can help, GREAT. If not, then you've lost nothing. They were dead right.

My med dropped by >80%. My wife's only fell by about $10 (but 10 bucks is still a big help each month, especially when we didn't have to do anything). For anyone taking expensive brand name meds that are notoriously difficult to find discounts on, patients should probably check the WellRx website just in case but, realistically, they should probably look directly to the manufacturers of those meds for help.

Can't really expect a free cash-savings program like this to bail out the manufacturers and their ridiculous prices. Thanks Scriptsave. Thanks Wellrx. Thanks Retirement Living!

Why did this card get 5 Stars? I just checked for a specific Drug price because it is Brand and not on a Formulary list. This brand is required by patient. Three each pills per day, of the Drug Searched from your list, range in total price from $5,802.00 to $6,294.00 per Month. Yes that is each month and in addition to patient's other Rx required monthly. Hardly what you can call "Retirement Living"..

It is very nice that you can help save some people $5-$10 even $100, but a much bigger heart of the drug pricing matter is in the truth of price gouging that I've listed above. Work on doing something that will address 100% unrealistic Rx Pricing. Truly work with Manufacturers to help!

I usually do not write reviews, but you are about the 6th site I have gone to looking for assistance. All of you have flowery wording to get you to apply/take your card services, but everyone of the sites, yours included are of no real value where you would be needed the most. I don't imagine this review will see the light of day, but my frustration said to speak to you about service. Thank you, now please help at a different level.

Free card for discounts? Can't be better than my insurance... Well it was! Saved over $10 on my prescription over my insurance cost! Saved over 75% over cash price. Either way I will be checking each time I fill a medication is cheap or my insurance.
