What if I already have insurance, can I still use Optum Perks coupons?

Yes, of course! Our card is not insurance, we simply provide discounts on prescriptions. Since pricing is an ongoing negotiation, please bring both your insurance card and Optum Perks coupon to your pharmacist to see which provides a more cost-effective option for you.

How can Optum Perks coupons help?

Prescription drug prices can be unpredictable, and high out-of-pocket costs can keep people from getting the prescriptions they need to live healthy lives. Our drug coupons can provide deep discounts from these costs and give some relief from rising costs of medications.

Does my pharmacy accept Optum Perks coupons?

You're in luck, Optum Perks coupons are accepted at nearly every pharmacy nationwide and in Puerto Rico. Whether you get your medication from a small independent pharmacy or a large chain, our discounts are accepted at thousands of pharmacies.

If for any reason your pharmacist does not accept your coupon, please call us 24/7 on our pharmacist help line at (1-866-407-8901) and we'll be glad to help you.

Is there a discount on my prescription?

Use our proprietary search engine to input your medication and location specifics. Tell us what you need and where you are and we'll show you the lowest price available in your area. Prices are subject to change, so to find the most accurate price of your medication, have your pharmacist perform a price check using the numbers on the front of your coupon before you purchase.

I'm having trouble finding my specific prescription (brand, dosage, quantity).

If you're having trouble finding your medication and dose, try using the full name and any letters behind it (like adding XR or ER). Send us an email at perks_support@optum.com. Otherwise, please contact our customer service line at 1-866-407-8901, we're glad to help!

Important note for Medicare users

If you have a Medicare Part D plan, you can still use Optum Perks. But drugs purchased with this discount will not count toward your Medicare deductible, and therefore not allow you to exceed your deductible and get out of the "donut hole." Contact your plan administrator to get the details. Not all plans are the same.
