Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Did you know that over the past 10 years, insurance companies have passed 25-80% more of the cost of prescription medications on to patients? If you or a loved one is interested in finding the cheapest medications, check out GoodRx. GoodRx is a handy resource that helps you find the lowest price on specific meds. The average GoodRx customer saves more than $200 each year with this service!

So, how does it work? GoodRx helps individuals by gathering current prices and discounts to help them find the lowest cost pharmacy for their prescriptions. What's even better is that this service is 100% free and doesn't require any personal information! To get started:

- Simply visit GoodRx.Com (or download their free app for iOS and Android devices),
- Type in your medication
- Click the FIND THE LOWEST PRICE button on the right, and that's it!

But wait, there's more! GoodRx also offers coupons that can help you get your medication even cheaper. According to their website, coupons are accepted at virtually any pharmacy in the U.S.
