DENVER (CBS4)- A new smartphone app will research the best prices on prescriptions no matter where you are.
With the free app, GoodRx, the user puts in the medication and zip code and the app does all the price comparison. It also maps where the different pharmacies are located.
4 On Your Side Money Saver Suzanne McCarroll found some big price differences in the same medication. The common antibiotic medication Amoxicillan had price ranges from $2 to $12.
GoodRx CEO Doug Hirsh launched the app last month.
“The inspiration for it was my own personal experience that drug prices are all over the place,” said Hirsch.
The GoodRx app won’t cure what ails you but at least the cost of your pills won’t make you sick to your stomach.
