Frequently Asked Questions What is a prescription drug discount card? Prescription drug discount cards allow cardholders to save money on all types of prescription medications. At the time of purchase, cardholders simply present their card at a participating pharmacy to instantly receive substantial discounts on their prescription drugs. How do prescription drug discount cards work? Present your prescription drug discount card to your pharmacy. When the card information is entered into the pharmacy's computer system, the price on the prescription is discounted based on the pharmacy's agreement with our program. Who needs a prescription drug discount card? Any individual with limited or no prescription drug coverage can benefit from a prescription drug discount card. Instead of paying full price for medication, cardholders can save money whenever they purchase prescription drugs. People who already have prescription insurance may still find the card useful, as it can discount medications that are not reimbursable by their health plan. What kind of savings can a cardholder expect? This program offers substantial discounts on all brand-name drugs and generic drugs. We save cardholders an average of 15% on brand name drugs and 55% on generic drugs. What prescription medications are covered under this program? All FDA-approved brand and generic prescription medications are covered. Are there any restrictions with using these cards? No. Everyone can benefit from the cards. Can I get prices over the Internet? Yes. You can use the Drug Pricing tool to get prices from this website. Can I use my card for mail-order prescriptions? Yes. You would need to order a 90 day supply, but you can expect even greater savings. Does my doctor need to know about this card when writing my prescription? No. This program will not affect the way you are cared for by your physician. What does getting the "lowest" or "best" price on my prescriptions mean? It means that a participating pharmacy will give you their lowest (or best) price available at their pharmacy. In 80% of previous transactions, that price will be significantly lower than any retail or sale price you would receive without the card. If a brand-name or generic drug is available through your participating pharmacy at a lower price than the scheduled price with our discount card, you will pay only the lower of the two prices. Why don't all pharmacies accept the card? All chain pharmacies and most independent pharmacies have been given equal opportunity to serve you via this program. Pharmacies are required to offer very deep discounts and assist in performing some fairly complicated drug management procedures on behalf of our cardholders, and some pharmacies simply refuse. However that gives you the confidence of knowing that pharmacies participating have your best interests in mind. What if my pharmacist said the card would not save me any money? As a cardholder, you are entitled to your benefit. Your pharmacist will not know what the card savings will be until the prescription is sent for pricing via the pharmacist's computer. If your pharmacist does not want to comply with the program, you should consider going to a pharmacy that honors the card. Some drugs are excluded from my health program. Will I be able to get a discount on these drugs? All FDA approved drugs are eligible for discounts with our discount card.
