What is the “Good-Rx” Business Model?

By Anonymous

Good Rx makes money by perpetuating the, artificially set, high sticker prices of medications and receiving a portion of Pharmacy Benefits Manager [PBM] fees.

How it Works

GoodRx taps into PBM network for their “discounts” off of sticker price (e.g. Express Scripts, Optum Rx, Navitus … etc)

Consumer pays the newly “discounted” drug price.

Pharmacy pays PBM fee.

PBM pays GoodRx portion of the fee.

Good Rx adjusted EBITDA in 2019: $160 Million

Good Rx 2020 revenue is up 48% first half of 2020 – $257M

Opinion:

This is not market value.

This is another hand in the cookie jar keeping healthcare prices artificially high.

The consumer is the one ultimately harmed.
