It is "real" in that it exists - but whether it will be of any use to you (generally prescription discount cards are of no use to people with health insurance because the insurance company contracts specify a specific price regardless of whether the card might save you and/or them money.


Also, you run the distinct risk that is is a "skimmer plan" - one that traps and collects your personal data from signup and usage and sells that information to information aggregators - big databases who then sell your personal info or at least contact info to advertisers to send you ads or offers related to your purchases. Much like most chain store discount cards or loyalty cards are sold to data aggregators. If you have junk mail and advertising call and such blocking turned on you might not notice it, but turn off your advertising protection and you will see how fast you start getting inundated with ads related to your prior purchases.


For more info on Singlecare and other discount cards, google this search phrase - quite a few comments about it being a scam that claims to be a full health care plan rather than just a prescription discount card, and good articles from cftc and ftc about this sort of card and related scams - google
