Ever visit a clinic or health center with an in-house pharmacy? It’s like a one-stop shop for all your health needs. No need to make an extra stop on the way home. And the pharmacists likely know your providers personally, making any questions or concerns much easier to address. 

Well, that’s what Genoa is all about. There are nearly 600 Genoa pharmacies tucked into health centers across the country. The best part? They’re a closed-door pharmacy. That means only people who go to the health center where the pharmacy is located can use its services. It’s like an exclusive club where you feel cared for and heard.  

When you’re a part of the Genoa family, you know you’re getting tailored service. And you’ll have access to their 24/7 customer service call center, too. 

They also specialize in helping people (and their families) who are dealing with mental health or addiction issues. Genoa pharmacists create custom-designed packaging that helps folks take their medications on time. They also help secure insurance prior to authorizations, sync up refills and give refill reminder calls. On-site staff are available to help with transactions or to answer any questions. 

For more than 20 years, Genoa has been caring for communities around the U.S. And now it has partnered with Optum Perks to help you save even more on your most needed medications.  

Here’s what you need to know.

How Genoa’s savings program works 

Genoa pharmacists are already dedicated to helping you save. They'll help patients take full advantage of savings programs from the manufacturers of prescription medications. 

But what if you’re still struggling to afford those medications? Optum Perks can help you by cutting prices by up to 80% on most prescription medications. Anyone with an Optum Perks discount card can access the potential savings. We've even made one that's co-branded with Genoa. The Optum Perks card, like the mobile app, can be used if you don’t have insurance, or if you have insurance and just want to make sure you’re getting the best price. And the service is totally free: It costs nothing and there’s no annual fee or hidden charges. 

How to use Optum Perks at a Genoa pharmacy 

To get started, simply ask Genoa pharmacists for the Genoa-branded Optum Perks pharmacy discount card. (You can also print it out through the link above.) Then bring it with you each time you go to the pharmacy. Like any other Optum Perks discount card, you can use the Genoa-branded version at more than 64,000 U.S. pharmacies.

Show your discount card to your Genoa pharmacist and ask them to compare your out-of-pocket or insurance costs to your Optum Perks cost. This way, you’ll know you’re getting the best price possible. Alternately, if you have the Optum Perks mobile app, you can use that to search for coupons yourself. Then you can show that to your Genoa pharmacist.

How much you save depends on the medication. But this special discount card has the potential to save you up to 80%. So why leave money on the table? 

If you or someone you love uses a Genoa pharmacy, know that the team wants you to get the medications you need at a price you can afford. And so do we.  

Prescription medication prices can be downright frustrating. But they don’t have to be. See how Optum Perks can help you today.
