All About the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card

For over 10 years, the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card has been helping patients afford their prescriptions. To date, we have saved patients over $280 million on the price of their medications. The free NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card can be used anywhere in the country at over 65,000 participating pharmacies including all of the major chains, to save up to 80% on the cash price of your prescriptions. There are no income, age, or immigration status restrictions. There is no activation or registration needed and no personal information is taken when using our card.


The only rule is that you can’t combine insurance with the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card. If you’re uninsured, you can use it any time you are purchasing a medication. If you have health insurance, the card can fill in the gaps in your coverage. For example, if you have any medications not covered under your insurance or if you have a high copay or deductible you could try using the card instead of your insurance. You can also use the card on any over-the-counter or medical supplies your doctor writes as a prescription, as well as human-equivalent pet prescriptions you can pick up at a pharmacy.


Starting last year, the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card can be used to save 40% on durable medical equipment and diabetic supplies. Our partnership with My Virtual Doctor allows patients to buy hundreds of items online at a discount when you enter a NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card ID at checkout. You can now use your NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card to save on:

  • Diabetic supplies — needles, syringes, meters, test strips, lancets and more;
  • Splints and braces for ankle, knee, wrist, back;
  • Catheters and incontinence supplies;
  • Bathroom safety supplies — commodes, grab bars, bath benches and more;
  • Compression stockings;
  • Mobility devices such as canes, crutches, walkers, wheelchairs;
  • Footwear — inserts, socks, slippers;
  • Bladder control pads;
  • and more!


A NeedyMeds drug discount partnership is a great opportunity to collaborate with us if you are part of an organization, social service organization or healthcare facility. Offer a co-branded card to increase awareness of your organization and how you are contributing positively to your community. We design a plastic card that can include the partner’s name and logo and prepare camera-ready and web-ready graphics. We work with each partner to help them determine the best way to distribute their branded cards and educate the card recipients on how to maximize their savings with the card. You’ll also receive monthly reports about how often your card is getting used and how much you are saving the population that you serve. These reports can help illustrate in a tangible way to funders and other interested parties how you are helping your constituency. Contact today if you’re interested in finding out more about the opportunity or to request a large amount of cards.
