Yes, you can use a prescription discount card, even if you have insurance. You might need to talk to the pharmacy manager, though. Some pharmacists are pretty obtuse about it.

You are NEVER required to submit a claim to your insurance. Depending on the details of the insurance, and your total prescription costs, you may save money on an annual basis by paying more up front to go through your insurance, but that determination requires information you didn't provide.

The whole point of the discount card is to make the drugs cheaper if you don't have insurance. If you are using insurance, you cannot use the discount card...does this make sense?

Normally you can not use a prescription discount card with insurance.

USA ask the pharmacist what the cash price is, say I do not want to use insurance, I want to use this card.

If you are using the insurance, then you have to pay the copay.
You can use the discount card only if you don't use the insurance, so you have to pay whatever the discounted price is.
You can use either the insurance or the discount card. You cannot use both.
