If I have a drug program while on Medicare, Can I use the GoodRx card rather than go through Cigna?

    You can use a GoodRx discount instead of your prescription insurance or Medicare if the cost is lower. However, GoodRx cannot be combined with your insurance or any federal or state-funded program such as Medicare or Medicaid. GoodRx is not insurance.

    So, yes but can't use (both). So, like the article states, if goodrx is cheaper than your insurance co-pay, then you have to tell the pharmacist to (not) put in your insurance.

    Years ago, a friend complained that she found a RX for $4, but her Part D was $10 copay. So instead of paying $10, then had pharmacist put in as (cash), thus paid only $4.

    You have to pay cash with GoodRX unless they will accept your Cigna drug plan.

    Yes, you can use GoodRx instead of your Medicare coverage.

    I do find GoodRx has good prices compared to some Part D coverage but usually you'll be able to find a drug plan that'll be better. You should check into changing plans when you get the option.

      It's too bad that the part D plans in your area are never better, in my area they often are. Also, the $12 - $25 plans are usually better for most people than the more expensive plans.

    Yes.

    As long as the coupon you are using says that it can't be used if you have other coverage.

      I've never seen with GoodRX where it says it can't be used if you have other coverage. I'm glad it doesn't. I think they're great, and also very helpful if you call them. No charge even to help you get the pharmacy to accept the coupons.
