Who is RxThat?
RxThat is a team of physicians, pharmacists, and technologists dedicated to streamlining the prescription process.

RxThat allows patients to make informed decisions about their healthcare by allowing them to find the best price for their medications at multiple pharmacies using their insurance benefits, available discounts and coupons, or cash payment options. RxThat eliminates the administrative barriers and red tape, making sure all patients get the treatment they need.
