Q: Can I use my MyMedsSavingsCard with my insurance card?

A: You cannot use both your insurance card and MyMedsSavingsCard at the same time. If you have an insurance plan that covers the drugs you are purchasing, we recommend you bring both to your pharmacy and use whichever one saves the most. However, if you don’t have insurance, or if the drug you are purchasing is not covered by your insurance plan, we recommend you use MyMedsSavingsCard.
