Possible Savings on Prescription Drugs

By Express Scripts, Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM)

Prescription drug savings for you and your family

No one should have to worry about how to pay for their medications. Suppose you or a family member are in a season of transition or without insurance and currently paying full price for your medications. In this and other cases, you (and your pets) may have access to prescription medication discounts by using the Express Scripts Inside Rx® savings card.

Inside Rx® and Inside Rx Pets® are prescription savings programs offered to most anyone through Express Scripts, and provides brand and generic medication discounts at 60,000 participating retail pharmacies.

Inside Rx provides you with:

  • Up to 80% average savings on the cost of generic medications*
  • Up to 40% average savings on the cost of brand medications*
  • Easy access to savings at one of 60,000 participating retail pharmacies in the U.S. and Puerto Rico

There are no fees, sign-ups or obligations required to receive these valuable discounts. Eligible persons can present their Inside Rx card with a valid prescription at a participating pharmacy to save. Visit insiderx.com/saverx to download your free card.

*Savings based on cash price for eligible users of Inside Rx card.

Can anyone use the Inside Rx card?

Anyone with a valid prescription can use Inside Rx. However, restrictions exist for certain featured brand medications only. For example, if you participate in a state or federally funded health care program, such as Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE or others, you may not use Inside Rx to purchase specific featured brand medications, even if you elect to pay for the prescription as an uninsured or cash-paying patient. You may use Inside Rx if you are enrolled in one of these programs and choose to purchase generic or non-featured brand medications. Additionally, if you’re 65 or older, you cannot use Inside Rx to purchase Advair® HFA, Anoro® Ellipta®, Arnuity® Ellipta®, Breo® Ellipta®, Incruse® Ellipta®, Trelegy Ellipta, Flovent® Diskus® or Flovent® HFA.

Can I use the Inside Rx with my insurance card?

The Inside Rx card is not insurance and cannot be combined with your insurance, copay cards, or other secondary payers. If you go outside of your benefit plan and use the Inside Rx card, your medication’s cost may not apply toward your deductible or other cost-sharing requirements. Before using the Inside Rx card, check your insurance benefit because it may provide greater savings than the Inside Rx card.

The Inside Rx card is not insurance. It cannot be used (1) by persons covered by state- or federal-funded programs with certain medications, even if processed as a cash-paying patient, or (2) with any insurance benefit or copay assistance programs. You are responsible for the cost of prescription(s) when using the card. Discounts vary, and restrictions and terms apply. See insiderrx.com for the full terms and conditions.

Also, be sure to check with your insurance plan to verify what prescriptions might already be listed under your preventive drug list and covered at 100%. Here is the current preventive drug list for those enrolled in the Alliance Health Plan.

Prescription drug savings for your pets

Inside Rx is a “PAW-FECT” perk on prescription savings for your pets! If you are a pet parent, you know nothing can replace the love of our furry family members. However, just like humans, health care costs for pets can be expensive. Especially if you are dealing with expenses for prescriptions treating chronic conditions such as diabetes, anxiety, arthritis, or heart disease, it can be a real burden to your budget.

But help is on the way – we have partnered with Inside Rx Pets®, a prescription savings program to provide pet parents discounts on brand and generic human medications prescribed for pets at 60,000 participating retail pharmacies.

It’s easy to get started. Visit insiderx.com/saverx to download your Inside Rx Pets card.

Enjoy the savings* at a participating pharmacy when paying for your pet’s medication. That’s it!
