Is GoodRx and BuzzRx the same?

No, GoodRx and BuzzRx are different companies. Both offer a prescription savings card that allows you save up to 80 percent at 60,000 participating pharmacies nationwide.

The key differences between the two companies are that BuzzRx is a private and self-funded company without any external investors. GoodRx is traded on the NASDAQ and it had multiple external investors before going public. In addition, BuzzRx donates to a charity partner when you save using their card.

The BuzzRx card is a free, pre-activated, ready-to-use prescription discount card that can get you big discounts in a variety of prescription savings categories, including prescription drugs, some over the counter medicines, and diabetes supplies.

You can use your BuzzRx card as many times as you like. You can also use your BuzzRx card at multiple pharmacies and locations. 

Can BuzzRx be used with insurance?

When you compare prices, you will find that the deep discounted BuzzRx prices are often less than your co-pays on some of the most frequently prescribed medicines and required diabetes supplies.

Saving on diabetes supplies with BuzzRx

Health care costs for people with diabetes can be overwhelming, including prescription medications to treat diabetes and its complications, diabetes supplies, and the cost of inpatient hospital care and physicians’ office visits. 

Diabetes supplies alone can run into thousands of dollars each year and include continuous glucose monitoring systems, blood glucose meters, test strips, and insulin syringes and needles, to name just a few. 

Unfortunately, many people with diabetes do not get the proper care they need because they cannot afford diabetes supplies and medications. 

The BuzzRx drug discount card is accepted at over 60,000 pharmacies in the US, including almost every major chain like Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Publix, Target, Safeway, and more. You can use the BuzzRx card as often as you like to make savings of 80 percent of more on listed pricing for diabetes supplies.
