Save Money on Prescription Drugs With This Great Resource

We have all heard about how prescription drug prices are out of control. For those who lack insurance, the price can be astronomical and lead to serious debt. Luckily, there are options to help reduce the cost of many common prescription medications. One popular option is the Prescription Discount Card plan — and we have several currently set aside for our loyal friends and clients of VanMeveren Law Group! This card is accepted at over 66,000 pharmacies around the country, which equates to 99% of pharmacies in the U.S., including Walmart, Rite Aid, Target, CVS, and Walgreens. So, whether you’re at home or traveling, you are never far from a participating pharmacy. One of the major benefits to the plan is that the discount applies to over 55,000 FDA-approved medications such as Abilify, Lipitor, Plavix, and many more. Essentially, every FDA-approved medication is eligible for a discount. With a Prescription Discount Card, members see an average savings of 15% on name-brand drugs and 55% on generics. The Prescription Discount Card is available to those with and without health insurance. While the card cannot be combined with insurance, it does offer a choice. You can decide to buy a prescription with your insurance, or you can use the card and go with the cheaper options. That being said, the Prescription Discount Card covers many drugs that some insurance plans do not cover. It can really benefit anyone who wants to lower their costs, which is just about everybody. Many card users also see lower pricing than their copays on a number of generic drugs, as well as acute care medications. It’s a great way to save money if you find yourself in the Medicare “donut hole,” which is the gap in coverage that can exist as a part of Medicare Part D coverage when users are required to pay more for their prescription medications. As of this year, the donut hole is closed, but it will still affect many people around the country. Again, there is no cost to join the Discount Drug Network and get the Prescription Discount Card, and it can save card users an average of $200 every year. If you are interested, you can pick up a card at either of our offices, or we can send it to you. The card comes preactivated, so you don’t have to do anything else. Once you have it, you simply take it to your pharmacy when you pick up your prescription.

The free card helps people save an average of $200 every year.

Another benefit to the Prescription Discount Card is that the savings are automatic. All you have to do is print or request a card. You don’t even need to share personal information to get the card or see the savings. Additionally, the card never expires, can be used as many times as you need, and can be used by everyone in your family.

Again, if you are interested in your own Prescription Discount Card, give us a call or stop by either of our offices, and we will get you one.
