Save Money with Free Prescription Cards for the Whole Family
While there are strong differences of opinion about how to address the health care crisis in America, few would argue that a problem exists. Are you one of the 50 million Americans who have no health insurance? Or, perhaps you are one of the millions of Americans who have health insurance (probably through your work) but no prescription benefit. Well, worry no more! Free prescription drug cards let you save up to 75% on your prescription medications at over 56,000 locations across the country.
Even if you have prescription benefits the price you get with a free prescription card may be lower than your co-pay. Just ask the pharmacist to compare the co-pay and the free Rx card benefit before you pay for your medications. Your card is good for brand and generic drugs. There are no age restrictions, employment or unemployment status doesn't matter, and anyone can use these programs, even if they are not U.S. citizens. The only limitation is that you must use a pharmacy in the U.S. that participates in the program or its mail order department. Most large U.S. retailers participate in free prescription programs.
Organizations and employers can use free Rx cards for their members and employees. Doctors and hospitals recommend free prescription programs for patients who would not be able to follow through on their health care treatments without these benefits. These free benefits are particularly valuable for people who are at risk for health complications but have to choose between medications for themselves and food for their families.
Free prescription benefits have been so helpful to so many people, programs are now expanding to include savings on diagnostic tests. Cardholders save 40 to 70% on tests such as cholesterol, lipid panels, glucose tests, x-rays, MRIs, urinalysis, and others. For example, a MRI that costs $1,536 retail costs $695 with a card, a savings of 54%. For a complete urinalysis your price drops 56% with a free Rx card, from $50 to $22. (These prices are examples only and may vary.)
While President Obama and the U.S. Congress struggle to agree on a health care reform package for the American people, free prescription programs can make needed medications affordable and available. You no longer have to choose between food and medicine.
