There are apps to help you find the lowest costs on just about anything, whether its every day products you might find on Amazon or apps like GasBuddy to help you find the lowest prices on gas. A new app which launched recently for Android and iOS called OneRx aims to bring that same type of simplicity and cost savings but for prescription medication. It boasts the possibility to save people up to 90 percent on all prescription medication costs which could end up being a huge savings if you typically need multiple types of medication or if your medication is usually expensive.
If customers have an insurance plan the app will automatically apply any benefits the plan carries to the prescription purchases, and much like you might find with a website that compares prices on hotel rooms and flights, OneRx will compare the prices of pharmacies to show you the best prices on the exact medication you’re looking for so you know where to get it while saving the most money. You can also obtain and use a OneRx discount card which will end up saving you an annual amount on prescription costs, reaching a total of up to $750 over the course of the year.
The app should be simple enough to use for just about anyone, with a dashboard that has access to all the main functions like messages from the OneRx app, app help, searching for meds and a MyMeds section for viewing saved medication. There’s also a button for the My Rx Card which you can tap on to open it up and show it to your pharmacist when you’re ready to pick up and pay for a prescription. Searching for medication is quite simple as the app lists off the varied prices and the location of each price as well as how far away it is from your current location. You can also swipe over to a maps tab to see the location on the map if you aren’t sure where it is which could come in pretty useful if you’re searching for the medication in a city you’re not familiar with.
