Can I Use My Discount Pharmacy Card Anywhere?

 CanIUseMyDiscountPharmacyCardAnywhereIn the United States today one quarter of people taking prescription medication struggle to pay for them according to the latest Kaiser Family Foundation health tracking poll. This is where a free prescription discount card is a life saver. But to really save money on your medication, it is important to make sure you have the right prescription discount card.

Getting the Right Discount Prescription Discount Card

 CanIUseMyDiscountPharmacyCardAnywhereIt is safe to say that the average person likes to shop around to get the best price on what they want to buy. This should include your medicine. For example say you decide to get a Walgreens prescription discount card. This limits you to getting your medication only at Walgreens. If you find yourself in Connecticut, Massachusetts or Mississippi, those states will not accept your Walgreens prescription Card. Walgreens charges you a fee ($20 individual and $35 family rate yearly). Their terms and conditions state that the pricing and saving of your medication depends on the number of your purchase, how many days supply you purchase, is the drug generic or brand pricing and is the drug included in the Tiered pricing (whatever that is). In addition it can only be used by you or your family.

Why Get A Discount Card If It Won’t Save You Money

It pays to shop around. Now that we have looked at the Walgreens Discount Card, let’s compare it with the USA Rx prescription discount card. The first thing is that there is no upfront or annual fee and one card is good for the entire family. The card works in over 60,000 pharmacies, both big stores and small independent pharmacies, so no matter where you go, you can get your medication at a discount. The discount is based on the our company negotiating with pharmacies to get you the best prescription deal possible. Your discount doesn't depend on what “Tier” you are on. So let’s look at some more benefits you get with the USA Rx discount prescription card:

  • Your USA Rx medication card never expires
  • Works with all FDA- approved brands and prescription generic
  • You can share your card with friends, family, coworkers or anyone who could use a discount.
