Why Businesses Are Looking Into Discount Pharmacy Cards

Employers are among the many who are being directly impacted by the health care reform laws set forth in Obamacare. Many employers are actually now required to provide health insurance to their employees or pay penalties, and even those who aren't required to do so are considering it simply because their employees will have to find coverage somewhere or be charged a fee on their taxes each year.

While there is no question that finding the right insurance policy to offer to employees is important, many employers are looking into other methods of offsetting costs or making health insurance more affordable. One option that's worth thinking about is the use of a discount pharmacy card like the USA RX Card. This card is a totally free card that allows users to receive discounts of as much as 75% off numerous prescription drugs.

Employers are looking at it for several different reasons, including the following.

  • Reduced Medical Expenses – While offering a discount card may not reduce overall costs of an insurance policy, it will make prescription drugs more affordable for your employees. As a result, they'll be better able to afford the drugs they need and will be more inclined to purchase those medications. This in turn will lead to fewer callouts, less time away from work, and better productivity on the jobsite.
  • Better Morale – By providing them with something as simple as a prescription discount card, you'll be letting your employees know that you care about them. In doing so, you'll be helping build morale in your company which in turn can have numerous positive effects on their lives.
  • Extra Income – There are some extra income opportunities available with the USA RX card, and you could add an additional, secondary profit stream to your bottom line by utilizing it.
  • No Cost – You're able to receive all of the advantages of a discount card without having to pay for it. Since the card itself is free, there's really no reason not to think about providing it to your workers.
