Atorvastatin (generic Lipitor) is a statin used to treat high cholesterol. Before its release as a generic drug in 2011, atorvastatin was considered the top drug by sales for almost a decade. It is still one of the most commonly prescribed statins. Atorvastatin remains one of the leading highly discounted generic drugs on the market where users can save big money when using a discount drug card at their pharmacy. See the other high discount drugs.
So how does EasyDrugCard stack up with savings on this essential drug for millions of Americans? We took a deep dive into our utilization data (we never collect/store patient data) and found some interesting results.
We looked back at the average “pharmacy price”, the usual and customary price you would pay without insurance or our drug card and found the price has been generally dropping since 2013.
In 2013, the average pharmacy price for 30 20MG tablets was $3.01 per pill while the EasyDrugCard price was just $0.51. That’s an 83% discount.
Today, in early November 2020, the average pharmacy price is $3.14 per tablet (slightly higher than the 2013 price) while our price is just $0.20 per pill which represents a 94% discount off the pharmacy price. While prices vary by pharmacy and region, we have consistently delivered deeper discounts on this popular drug over the last decade than our advertised discount of 75%.
