DirectPath has integrated GoodRx’s pricing data into its member portal, thus enabling its members to access prescription cost information and comparative cost information about medical procedures and treatments.
The company’s goal is to help employees make cost-conscious decisions about every aspect of their health care. DirectPath says that having the information in hand can help people save up to 80% on medications and an average of $340 on out-of-pocket spending on procedures and treatments.
The company says one-third of consumers do not fill their prescriptions due to cost concerns. By simply entering their ZIP code and prescribed medication into the GoodRx pricing tool, members will be able to access price and discount information for more than 70,000 pharmacies, prescription coupons that can either be printed or saved on their phone, and comparisons between generic and brand-name drug prices.
Members will also have access to DirectPath advocates, who can discuss the information presented through the GoodRx widget and contextualize it based on their health plan and specific circumstances.
“GoodRx is an extremely powerful tool for educating people on ways that they can save on prescription drugs,” says Bridget Lipezker, senior vice president and general manager, advocacy and transparency at DirectPath. “With health care costs continuing to rise, DirectPath’s mission to democratize information about health care savings opportunities is more important than ever.”
