How do AARP Prescription Discounts work?

Easy to use

Medication insurance coverage can change each year, or maybe your insurance coverage has lapsed and prices are too high. Now, you have an affordable and easy-to-use option with the AARP Prescription Discount card. AARP members save more and get additional benefits, like home delivery.

Get your Rx card

Great savings

You get better savings as an AARP member. Just download your card, write in your name and AARP member ID, and show it to your pharmacist. There is no limit to how often you can use your Rx discount card, and you can use it on any FDA-approved medications. This includes brand name, generic, and over-the-counter medications when prescribed by a physician.

Find a drug price

We’re here to help you save

With the Rx discount card, you could get a better price on prescriptions than what your insurance offers. Ask your pharmacist to compare and then use the option that provides the best price.

Insurance is NOT required, and you can use this discount card regardless. If you don’t have insurance, just use the card, and no need to compare!
