myDrugCosts displays a "Cash Price" to give you an additional way to purchase your medications without your insurance. You can purchase drugs at this price using the myDrugCosts Discount Card. The card is free and accessible from within myDrugCosts.
A cash price is useful for situations where a drug is not covered by the plan, where the plan copay is greater than the cash price or when you don't want the drug to be purchased by your employer
To access the card and see prices at specific pharmacies, go to a drug and click on the “Detail” button in the cash price row. You will go through two steps:
- Pick a Pharmacy
- Click the “Discount Card” button and show this to your pharmacist
Note that cash purchases will not count towards your deductible or out-of-pocket maximum since it does not use your insurance.
