GoodRx, a resource for healthcare savings and information, and Navitus Health Solutions, a pass-through pharmacy benefit manager, are unveiling Savings Connect.
This program, when elected by clients, provides members with automatic access to GoodRx prices on generic drugs in a seamless experience at the pharmacy counter. Consumers no longer have to proactively review and choose between using their insurance or a discounted price available through GoodRx. Both prices are compared behind the scenes and the lowest one is delivered directly to the consumer.
“We are focused on expanding into the insurance benefit market because we see the value that transparency and significant savings provide to all relevant stakeholders,” said Cynthia Meiners, strategic program development officer at GoodRx. “We are excited to partner with Navitus to deliver lower-cost prescriptions to their members, and also strengthen the impact of our prescription savings within the insurance benefit marketplace.”

No additional action is required by eligible Navitus members to access GoodRx savings through the Savings Connect program. Individuals simply show their existing Navitus benefit card at the pharmacy counter, and then GoodRx and Navitus automatically review and identify the best prescription cost available. The amount paid by the member is applied to the deductible and out-of-pocket maximum. This process also leverages clinical data integration to ensure all claims remain associated with the member’s prescription record.
“Navitus strives to make medications more affordable for the people who need them. As healthcare costs rise, it is critical that we align with companies that share our mission to drive out needless costs for our members,” said David Fields, CEO of Navitus Health Solutions. “We are thrilled to be collaborating with GoodRx to deliver lower prices for our members while creating a seamless experience at the pharmacy.”
Eligible Navitus members can already take advantage of the Savings Connect program on many commonly prescribed generic prescriptions at in-network pharmacies, with an accelerated rollout to additional clients expected in January 2024. This program was previously introduced to clients of EpiphanyRx, Navitus’ in-house solution for emerging and mid-market employer groups, in Q4 2022.
