Kroger Rx Savings Club

Does everyone know about this? DH told me about it, and I started looking up some of our meds, and two of them are on the FREE list, and 2-4 more are on the 3 and 6 dollar list! Thought I'd share!

    Dory-that's great!  we don't have a Kroger-wish we did, I miss them!  Our Publix is similar but they are mostly antibiotics.  However, some of their "reduced cost" meds are some of the ones we use and they are cheaper than what we pay for them with insurance.

    That's pretty cool, Dory!  Looks like there aren't any in our area but will keep it in mind in case the list adds a nearby store.  Thanks for sharing this!

    I wonder if you can do prescription deliver with them?  Our local pharmacy will either mail your script or you can come pick it up.  Wonder if you could do that with them?

    OOh! Now that's an idea!  Our insurance is really good about covering most of my meds but there are one or two that it doesn't cover.  There are some in towns that aren't too far distant so it would be in the same state if that makes any difference.  Will have to look at their drug list to see which of my meds are on it.  Thanks for the idea, Lynn!

    Dory, I had recently seen this program and was really excited for folks! Can you tell me whether any payments you make for medications is run through your insurance so that it applies to your deductible or out-of-pocket max?

    I guess in the long run, if you're getting the medication for free or at a steeply discounted rate, it helps no matter whether it is processed through your insurance.

    I think, too, there may be restrictions if you have government-based health insurance — Medicare, Medicaid or Tri-Care.

    I'm so glad it works for your family — thanks for sharing!

    We haven't used it yet, but it says that you can use this instead of your insurance copays if it's cheaper. We already use GoodRx for one of my older son's meds that is not covered by insurance, and this would save us even more for that one medication. (We get that one at Kroger.)  One thing to remember is that not all meds are cheaper using this, but it's worth it to me to check. I have 14+ meds and my older son has 8, so it really adds up. We use two different pharmacies (Kroger and CVS), so I don't mind shopping around for the best deal, especially if it saves me money! 

    What if I have prescription drug coverage?

    Rx Savings Club prices can be lower than your insurance co-pay. You can use your Kroger Rx Savings Club membership instead of your insurance whenever the program price beats your co-pay. Individuals enrolled in any state or federally funded programs, including but not limited to Medicare, Medicaid, VA, DoD, or Tricare cannot combine those programs with the Kroger Rx Savings Club. The Kroger Rx Savings Club does not meet any creditable coverage requirements under any state law. Kroger Rx Savings Club is not insurance.
