Big Apple Rx is New York City’s (NYC) official prescription discount card. When using Big Apple Rx at the pharmacy, you can expect discounts on your medications that average 18% on branded drugs and 55% on generic drugs. However, the total discount you receive will depend on other circumstances like the type of medication, the supply needed, and whether your prescription is a branded or generic version of the drug. This discount card is accepted at more than 2,000 NYC pharmacies, including many major chains and nearly all independent pharmacies. There are no fees to obtain this card.


How do I apply?

You do not need to apply to get the discount from Big Apple Rx. Instead, you can visit the Big Apple Rx Web site and print a discount card. You can also find the discount card at local businesses and community organizations throughout New York City.
