How prescription discount apps work

Did you know you can save money on your prescription medications? All you need is a discount card or app and you can save up to 80% on your prescriptions. No special health insurance required!

Pharmacy discount programs like Optum Perks exist to help you save money on your medications by comparing prices and negotiating discounts to get you the lowest price. A mobile prescription discount app, like our Optum Perks app, lets you search for your prescriptions to find, save, share, and use coupons to save money directly from your phone.

How can Optum Perks help you save money?

Prescription prices change throughout the year and it can be difficult to keep track of price fluctuations. That’s why we have a dedicated pricing team to help you find the best price for your prescription medications. We’ve saved users over $1.7 billion on prescription medications at over 64,000 pharmacies nationwide where our discount card is accepted, including Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid.
