Save on expensive generics

Generic medications are safe and effective equivalents to branded medications. They go through the same FDA regulations as branded medication, but normally cost a fraction of the price. These medications account for 90% of all prescriptions filled in the U.S. While many generic medications are affordable, some still come at a high price tag, and unfortunately, those costs seem to be going up.

Despite generic medications typically costing only pennies to produce, the average co-pay for patients taking generic medications is $10/month. This is due to high insurance co-pays or deductibles, changes to formularies, and hidden pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) fees.

Our model at Marley Drug bypasses the insurance company and PBMs to save you money. Fewer middle-men almost always means a lower price for you, even with insurance. That’s why we can offer more then 100 generic medications for $37 for 6 months or $70 for 12 months, and that includes free shipping. Check out which medications we offer here.
