A Guide To Understanding Pharmacy Discount Cards

You may have recently heard or seen information regarding discount drug cards, drug savings cards, pharmacy discount cards, or Rx cash cards.  In fact, you may have already received one of these discount cards from an organization you are a member of or even your doctor’s office.  Or you may have visited a website like ours to download and print out your own pharmacy discount card.  These cards were designed to help individuals save money on their prescription medications, especially those people who do not have health insurance or those who do not have drug coverage in their insurance plan.

 

Function Of The Card

 

The first thing you need to understand about the USA Rx pharmacy discount card is that it is not a form of healthcare insurance.  It is a card that benefits individuals who are paying for their medications out of pocket.  So it works in similar fashion to a warehouse club card.  It is FREE for those individuals mentioned above in the prior paragraph.  All you need to do is visit the USA Rx website, download the card and print it out, and then present it to your local pharmacist.  You could receive discounts of up to 75% on qualifying medications at over 60,000 pharmacies nationwide.

 

Considerations

 

As with any pharmacy discount card, the value of our USA Rx pharmacy discount card is based on a number of different factors including:

 

•    amount of discounts offered

•    how widely the card is accepted

•    specific medications and services that the card covers

 

You should check with your local area pharmacies in order to ensure who accepts our card and who does not and then start using it where it is authorized.  Additionally, you should make sure that your medications will be covered and the amount of discount you can expect to receive when refilling your prescriptions.

 

Additional Suggestions

 

Whenever you are searching online for a drug savings card or pharmacy discount card, you want to watch out for those companies who advertise or provide inaccurate or misleading information.  Although the USA Rx pharmacy discount card is completely legitimate, it’s unfortunate that the industry is not immune to fraudulent activities and scam artists.  If you would like to know more about our card, you can contact us in one of three ways:
