Pharmacist: Call the Pharmacist Help Desk phone number on the back of your Co-op Connections Card, (877)-448-6182

How are these pharmacy discounts different from traditional prescription insurance?

This plan is not insurance; it is a pharmacy discount offer. The card provides immediate discounts at the pharmacy. Upon presenting your card to the pharmacist, you will pay the lower of a discounted price or the pharmacy’s regular retail price. There are no forms to fill out and no limit to the number of times you can use the card. These discounts are available only at participating retail pharmacies.

Can I use my Co-op Connection card with my current insurance benefit to reduce my costs?

No. Your Co-op Connections card cannot be used in conjunction with insurance. However, you may use your card to receive discounts on prescriptions not covered by your insurance plan.

Where can I get a list of pharmacies that accept the card?

The Co-op Connections card is accepted at over 48,000 retail pharmacies nationwide, including CVS, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Target and more. You can find participating pharmacy locations at www.connections.coop.

Will I always receive the lowest price?

Yes. You will receive the best price available to you through this program at the pharmacy. On occasion, pharmacies will price a particular medication lower than the discount rate provided by the card. If that occurs, you will receive the lower price.

Can I find out the discounted price of my prescriptions before going to the pharmacy?

Yes, if you know the name, strength, and quantity of the medication, you can find the discounted price of the medication by visiting www.rxpricequotes.com.

Why did the price of my prescription change since my last purchase?

Drug prices are different from pharmacy to pharmacy. Even chains have different prices in their stores depending on the population they are servicing. Additionally, manufacturers’ drug prices change periodically.
