According to research from the Mayo Clinic, more than half of Americans are on two prescription medications and 20% take five or more. SingleCare’s Drug Basket is a time and money saving solution for consumers searching for the best price on multiple medications.
“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,” said Rick Bates, co-founder and chief executive officer of RxSense, SingleCare’s parent company. “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 has also 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.
SingleCare is helping millions of customers save billions on their prescriptions. 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 percent on their medications compared to the cash price and it’s often cheaper than a copay.
