Saving Money on our Prescriptions!

This post is sponsored by Optum Perks, but is entirely my own thoughts and opinions.


I have spoken openly about taking medication for my anxiety and OCD on here before, and love to do so. I don’t feel ashamed for taking medication, I feel lucky to live in a time where it’s so easily available to me. I don’t take that for granted. Something that comes with taking a prescription drug everyday, is paying for it.



Medications can add up real quick in a hurry, especially if you take more than one a day. When I heard about Optum Perks I was a little skeptical because usually with these types of things they want to know everything about you, and put you through a long process to give you just .20 cents off, or something like that.



I was eager to try out the app and see what it was like, and let me tell you. IT'S THE EASIEST THING EVER. Literally all you do is download the app, search for your medication, select your dose and how many tablets, and voila it pulls up your coupon options for pharmacies near you. You get to compare the prices and choose which one you want, save it to your phone and simply show the coupon to the pharmacist when you go to pick up your medication. There are no memberships, no fees & you do not need to have insurance to use the app. #Optumperks enables you to save up to 80% on your prescriptions and is accepted at 64,000+ pharmacies nationwide! I’m so excited about the savings that I can put towards other important things in my life, like raising my boys!


If you are on a medication, I highly recommend downloading the app Optum Perks, you can download it here. You can save a lot of money with just the click of a button. I encourage you to write a review on the app store as well if you love the app!
