A look at GoodRX Gold

So, you may already know that you can search for free drug coupons on goodrx.com, which can lower the price of medications by up to 80%. But did you know that with GoodRx Gold, the GoodRx membership drug savings program, you might be able to save even more?

What’s the difference between GoodRx and GoodRx Gold?

GoodRx Gold is a drug savings program that you pay a membership fee to join. Just like GoodRx, GoodRx Gold gives you access to drugs at discounted prices at popular pharmacies in your area—but Gold offers even better prices and more convenience. In fact, if you or your family takes mostly generic medications, you’ll likely find that your savings with Gold will exceed the cost of your monthly membership.


How much does a GoodRx Gold membership cost?

GoodRx Gold currently has a special offer where you can get a free membership for 30 days. After that, monthly plans will cost $5.99 for individuals and $9.99 for families.

How much will my prescriptions cost with GoodRx Gold?

With GoodRx Gold, you can save up to 90% on your prescriptions and typically,  40% more on average compared to using GoodRx. Can’t decide if you should use GoodRx or GoodRx Gold? Here’s how pricing compares for some popular generic medications:


Disclaimer: All prices are estimates for a specific quantity, dosage and form. Please view each drug’s page on gold.goodrx.com to modify the quantity, dosage and form. Exact pricing will be determined at the pharmacy.

What pharmacies accept GoodRx Gold?

Pharmacies nationwide, including Albertsons, CVS, Kroger, Safeway, and Vons, accept GoodRx Gold, and more than 97% of Americans can find a Gold-participating pharmacy in their zip code. Use their pharmacy directory to find Gold-participating pharmacies in your area. If you don’t see your preferred pharmacy on the list, don’t worry—they can help you easily transfer your prescription to one that accepts Gold. Read more about that process here.

GoodRx Gold is accepted in 49 states and Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, GoodRx Gold is not yet available in Washington.

How does GoodRx Gold work with Medicare?

GoodRx Gold cannot be combined with any insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid.  So it can be used instead of your Part D coverage if the co-payment is cheaper under the GoodRx Gold.   You need to do a drug cost search on each of your drugs to see if the GoodRx Goldis cheaper.  If you fall into the doughnut hole in the past, this can be a way to possibly prevent falling into the doughnut hole in the future.  If you use the GoodRX Gold for your drugs where the GoodRX Gold co-payment is cheaper or close to the same as your Part D co-payment, those drug cost do not count toward your True Out of Pocket Cost that triggers the doughnut hole.   If you have Medicare Part D and want to take advantage of your medication’s price through GoodRx Gold, just tell your pharmacist you want to pay in cash and then present your GoodRx Gold card to get your discounted price.
