Optum Perks is a free prescription discount card that is pre-loaded with coupons for most FDA-approved medications available, enabling people to save up to 80 percent on their medications. It provides better prices for those without insurance and is accepted at thousands of pharmacies nationwide, from the large chains to the local pharmacy around the corner, including Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid and Kroger.
“Anyone can use Optum Perks,” said Patty Starr, President & CEO of Health Action Council. “No one can be denied because of age, medical history, residency status or frequency of use. “
Optum negotiates discounting pricing with drug manufacturers on all FDA-approved prescription medications, prescribed medical equipment and non-prescription injections—such as flu shots or shingles shots. The pre-activated Optum Perks card is easy to use. Just take it to the pharmacy, submit to the pharmacist, and save up to 80 percent.
