"Our new and expanded partnerships with pharmaceutical manufacturers who share in our commitment to patient savings provide patients with deep discounts on the brand drugs they need or prefer."

To benefit from the Inside Rx discounts, eligible users simply need to download the free discount card from InsideRx.com or via GoodRx.com/brand and present it at one of the 40,000 participating pharmacies. Inside Rx can be used at national chains such as CVS, the Kroger Family of Pharmacies, Walmart and Walgreens. There is no membership fee or other costs to download or use the card which could save patients hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year.
