Nearly 30 million Americans were uninsured in 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau—and a Gallup poll reveals that the number has only risen since, by almost 14%. Add to that the number of underinsured individuals (people who are insured but have high deductibles and high out-of-pocket expenses relative to their income) and you’re left with an ever-growing need for affordable healthcare options. That’s where SingleCare comes in.
What is SingleCare?
SingleCare is a pharmacy savings card that can reduce prices up to 80% on your prescriptions. You can use it if you don’t have insurance, or you can use it instead of your insurance if our price is lower than your copay. That includes Medicare and Medicaid.
We believe that you should be able to get the best price possible for your medications. And we want to help you do just that with our free Rx card. It’s that simple. We’ve been helping customers save on their prescriptions since 2014.
How do I sign up?
All you have to do is search for your prescription on our website or using our app. You can text the coupon to yourself, print it immediately, or add it to your digital wallet. And don’t worry: Your SingleCare card is (and always will be) completely free to you, no strings attached.
How do I use it?
Just bring your SingleCare coupon to the pharmacy counter when you pick up your prescription.
Our card can be used by anyone—regardless of insurance status; however, it can’t be used at the same time as your insurance card. So if you have insurance that covers prescriptions, you should compare our prices with your co-pay. If you don’t have insurance, you should compare our price with the out-of-pocket (or cash) price.
When you’re at the drug store, you can ask the pharmacist to ring up both options for you to determine what’s best, or you can check prices on SingleCare first.
How do I compare prices?
If you visit singlecare.com, it’s easy to check the cost of your prescriptions. First enter your location, then type in your prescription name (our system will suggest drug names as you type). Once you’re on a drug page, you’ll need to select your specific dose and quantity.
Then you’ll see various pharmacies and your best discounted pricing options. Our price transparency charts show the average cash price compared to the average SingleCare coupon price for the past year, across several pharmacies.
There will be times when your insurance will offer a lower price, while there will be times SingleCare offers the lowest price on the market. That’s why we encourage our members to compare all options and choose the one that saves the most.
Where can I use my card?
You can use SingleCare at over 35,000 major pharmacies nationwide, including CVS, Target, Longs Drugs, Walmart, Walmart Neighborhood Market, Walgreens, Albertsons, Kroger, and Harris Teeter.
You can see which pharmacies near you accept our savings when you search for your FDA-approved prescription medications on our website or app.
What’s the catch?
There is no catch! SingleCare doesn’t work like other discount cards.
Pharmacies have partnerships with pharmacy benefit managers, also known as PBMs; our competitors partner with PBMs in order to be accepted at these pharmacies. We partner directly with pharmacies, which allows us to offer lower prices. By eliminating the “middleman” (the PBM), we can cut costs for the pharmacy and you!
Now, we do receive a small fee from our pharmacy partners whenever a patient uses SingleCare to save—but that’s how we can be a free service to consumers like you. Pharmacies choose to do business with us because we keep our business practices transparent, our prices consistent, and we help bring customers to their pharmacy.
