Optum Perks Pharmacy Discount Card

As a member of the National Labor Alliance of Health Care Coalitions, CPHCC brings you the Optum Perks Discount card.  It is a free prescription discount card pre-loaded with coupons for most FDA-approved medications available at over 64,000 pharmacies. Individuals can save up to 80% on their medications in lieu of insurance.


To use the discount program, the CPHCC NLA Optum Perks card must be presented when filling a prescription.  Optum Perks cannot be combined with insurance. Most of the time, insurance has lower drug costs. The cost of medication is usually cheaper with a prescription insurance plan because populations of insured people are different, and therefore, have different mixes of the medication within their population. Sometimes a prescription discount card can offer a better price through negotiation. With both options available, you can choose which is right for you.
