SingleCare prescription savings services debuts Drug Basket
SingleCare, a free prescription savings service, is introducing a new feature — Drug Basket — which enables consumers to conveniently and efficiently access the lowest consolidated prices for all their prescription drugs at nearby pharmacies.
"Americans are struggling every day with being able to afford the medications they need to live healthy lives and our goal is to educate them about the fact that they can and should always shop around for the best drug prices," Rick Bates, co-founder and CEO of RxSense, SingleCare's parent company said. “For patients who rely on multiple medications for themselves and their families, SingleCare’s Drug Basket allows them to optimize their pharmacy visits based on convenience in addition to cost.”
Consumers can visit singlecare.com to search for low prices on multiple prescriptions and add them to their basket using the “Add to your Drug Basket” button. On the Drug Basket page, users can see the lowest total price for all of their medications at local pharmacies, so they can pick up all their medications in one convenient place versus visiting multiple pharmacy locations.
SingleCare also proactively monitors and updates prices, so users don’t need to add medications to the basket each time they return to the site to refill a prescription. Every time a user visits their personal Drug Basket, they will see the latest SingleCare savings, which can be up to 80% less than the average cash price.
SingleCare also has introduced a new drug price comparison chart feature, providing consumers with transparency on the historical cost of prescription drugs over the past 12 months. Now when site users research a drug on SingleCare, they will see a drug description as well as charts that offer insights for SingleCare prices compared to the average cash price for prescriptions. SingleCare also uniquely offers brand versus generic prices for medications across popular pharmacies nationwide, the company said.
Through direct contracts with the nation’s largest pharmacies, including CVS, Walmart and Walgreens, SingleCare is able to provide consistently low prices on prescription drugs. Most people don’t realize they can shop for better prices on their medications and save a significant amount of money. SingleCare is saving customers up to 80% on their medications compared to the cash price and it's often cheaper than a copay, the company said.
