SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 5, 2019 — GoodRx, America’s leading resource for healthcare savings, today announced a new partnership with AAA to offer its 59 million members exclusive access to coupons and discounts on prescribed medications at pharmacies nationwide.

To view and compare prescription prices, AAA members simply go to AAA.com/GoodRx. After entering their membership number, members will receive immediate access to GoodRx prescription discounts that provide best-in-market savings of up to 85%. By combining exclusive prices from GoodRx with AAA’s vast membership, more Americans than ever before are now able to access affordable medications.

“We’re thrilled to partner with AAA to offer their millions of members the best prices on medications,” said Jim Sheninger, SVP & Pharmacy Strategy Officer at GoodRx. “We’ve worked hard to build a deep network of low prices at thousands of pharmacies, and it’s gratifying to be able to bring AAA members the savings they deserve.”

The GoodRx Prescription Discounts program offers AAA members an additional savings of 5% to 10% beyond the already significant savings available to all consumers on GoodRx.com. GoodRx is able to accomplish this through exclusive partnerships that deliver the lowest negotiated discount rates directly to its users.

“Rising healthcare costs are a major issue that our country is facing, and one that affects every one of our members. With this new program, AAA is delivering high value on prescription purchases, while also helping our members save on the cost of their membership and more,” said Scott Denman, VP of Financial Services and Discounts & Rewards at AAA. “We are always looking for ways to add new and relevant discounts to the AAA Discounts & Rewards program, so partnering with a best-in-class provider like GoodRx is a natural fit for us and a cost-saving resource for our members.,”

“GoodRx was founded with a mission to help every American, whether they have insurance or not, get the prescriptions they need at an affordable price,” said Doug Hirsch, co-CEO and co-founder of GoodRx. “We share with AAA a goal of bringing Americans ways to save money, and this partnership allows us to help more people than ever before.”

Since its founding in 2011, GoodRx has saved Americans more than $10 billion on their prescription medications, with $4 billion saved in 2018 alone. GoodRx partners with thousands of doctors, pharmacies and insurers across the U.S. to provide consumers with the best information and lowest prices for every FDA-approved medication.

AAA members can now use GoodRx Prescription Discounts at more than 70,000 pharmacies in the U.S., including CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Publix, Kroger, Costco, Giant Eagle, Schnucks, Albertsons, Duane Reade, Safeway and more.

Non-Medicare program is not just for seniors or AAA members.

While Medicare is in the process of sending its users information on how to apply for help with drug costs this summer, AAA already has a simple solution that many may already be carrying in their wallet: the AAA Prescription Savings program. 

With this program AAA members and their family members living in the same household can receive an average savings of 20 percent on prescription drugs at more than 54,000 pharmacy locations nationwide. It is free with a AAA membership, and the benefit extends to family members even if they are not AAA members, including children. The program can even be used to purchase pet medications at a discount.

“AAA Prescription Savings is most beneficial for the uninsured or under-insured,” said Tom Wilt, managing director, AAA Partnership Programs, “but it can also be helpful if a drug is not covered by a person’s insurance or if the insurance co-pay is higher than the cost of the drug.”

Unlike the new Medicare plan, AAA Prescription Savings has no restrictions on income, age, or the type of medication that can be purchased, and there is no deductible. Although savings are averaging more than 20 percent, greater discounts are available on generic and mail order prescriptions. Participating pharmacies include drug stores such as CVS and Rite Aid, and also discount and grocery stores such as Target and Publix.

“Even if you already have a discount prescription plan, insurance or Medicare,” said Wilt, “there is no additional cost for AAA Prescription Savings and you may be able to save more than what other programs are offering. You owe it to yourself to compare.”

For more information on AAA Prescription Savings or to enroll in the program, simply contact your local AAA office, call 866-AAA-SAVE (866-222-7283) or visit www.aaa.com/prescriptions.

AAA Prescription Savings is not an insurance plan. Savings are only available at participating pharmacies. Savings may vary by drug. The program administrator may obtain manufacturer rebates and other fees based on your prescription drug purchases. These rebates may be retained by the program administrator or shared with you and/or your pharmacy. As North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 48 million members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive-related services. Since its founding in 1902, the not-for-profit, fully tax-paying AAA has been a leader and advocate for the safety and security of all travelers.
