Your prescriptions may cost more with insurance than without it

–Learn how to beat the drug price crisis and get the lowest price for your meds, every time–

Doug Hirsch

Co-CEO of GoodRx


Up to 45% of Americans have trouble paying for medications, forcing more than 200 million prescriptions to be abandoned at the pharmacy counter each year. With drug prices causing outrage from Washington DC to Washington state and everywhere in between, many consumers across the country have been shocked to discover that they can sometimes get better deals for their prescriptions by paying out of pocket for their meds, instead of going through their insurance plan.

But with so much confusion around what price you’re actually paying at the register, and recent alarming news headlines around gag clauses at the pharmacy, how do you know which option will get you the lowest price on your specific prescription, at your local pharmacy?

Please join DOUG HIRSCH, co-founder and co-CEO of GoodRx, as he addresses issues surrounding the high cost of prescriptions and breaks down exactly what’s going on with drug pricing and how your viewers can get the lowest possible price for their meds. GoodRx is a website and free mobile app that tracks consumer pricing for drugs at almost every pharmacy in America, and helps you find the lowest cost pharmacy for your prescriptions. He will discuss:

♦      Why drug prices vary so widely

♦      How the prices of prescription drugs are set

♦      Why your co-pay may not be your lowest price

♦      How to know you’re getting the lowest price for your meds

♦      Why it’s important to know the drug prices in advance of your purchase

♦      What new tools and tips are available to help consumers get the lowest price
