While there’s no question that ‘Obamacare’ had some positive impacts, bringing insurance to millions who didn’t have it, the system still isn’t perfect. One of the biggest problems facing Americans today is the huge cost of medications – often medications that are needed to stay health or even stay alive.
Just think about treatment for hepatitis C – a single pill costs $1,000, and about 84 of them are needed to complete treatment. That means that obtaining this miracle pill and alleviating hepatitis C related issues can cost over $80,000.
And the recent outrage at ‘pharmabro’ Martin Shkreli is another example. The drug company CEO upped the price of a drug from $13.50 to $750 per pill – a drug that has saved the lives of many by preventing parasitic infections.
The bottom line is simple – drugs can save lives, but their costs can be astronomical. While we can’t just rush out and force those drug companies to lower their prices, one thing that we can do at USA Rx is try to help ease the financial burden that medications can bring with them. The examples above are extreme, but there’s no denying that getting help lowering costs is important.
The card can be used at 60,000 different pharmacies around the country. By using it, you’re offered discounted rates on prescription medications – from 10% to as much as 75% on certain prescriptions.
That’s it! It’s not insurance, so you aren’t limited based on health issues or monthly costs. Instead, it’s essentially a coupon that works on far more than just a single medication. And once you use it once, the discount is applied on all medications at that pharmacy.
Medication costs can make it hard to maintain a proper budget, but lowering those costs is easier than you might think. You can even combine the card with your insurance to ensure that you get maximum coverage and the best prices. If you’re ready to start saving money on your prescriptions, we’re ready to help.
