This program provides a savings of up to 85% certain generics and up to 15% certain name brand prescriptions. Discounts may reflect some variation based on type (generic or brand name) or the pharmacy’s location, but you will always be guaranteed the best price. Discount card price, insurance program’s price, or pharmacy’s discount price, you’ll be able to select the most affordable option available!
There will be some circumstances where no discount is offered, typically when the drug is already heavily discounted or in instances where the pharmacy’s discount is lower than the card’s.
Unfortunately you are prohibited from using both cards at the same time. However, if you have the pharmacist give you the price for all your prescriptions with our card and also with your insurance card, you will then be able to choose the most cost effective option. You’ll find that our card will provide a bigger discount than many insurance plans, so it’s worth investigating.
Simply give your card to your pharmacist with your prescriptions. Everything they need to electronically process your prescription and apply your discount is included on the card! Your Patient Rx Discount Card is a non-insurance discount drug card that offers significant savings for everyone.
It’s easy! Print, or download your card to your mobile phone; or we can text it to you!

The Patient Rx Discount Card program has no eligibility requirements. As opposed to insurance programs, there are no waiting period, income, pre-existing condition, age, or deductible restrictions. The discount card program was established to assist nationwide patients without coverage, or with high deductibles or copays, to afford their prescriptions.
Our program is also a benefit to those who must pay full retail prices during insurance deductible or coverage “donut holes,” like with Medicare Part D.
