Why People Erroneously Question The USA Rx Pharmacy Discount Card’s Legitimacy?

Why People Erroneously Question The USA Rx Pharmacy Discount Card’s Legitimacy?Whether it’s referred to as a discount drug card, drug savings card, or an Rx cash card, the USA Rx pharmacy discount card is a FREE form of medication assistance. Unfortunately, we are constantly answering one question more than any other – “Is this card fake or is it the real deal?” Even worse is the fact that many individuals who oppose these little money saving vehicles refer to them as scams. At least, that is the common misconception in the minds of many people today.

 

Benefits And Recommendations

We can assure you that the USA Rx pharmacy discount card is indeed legitimate. It’s just sad that so many individuals out there tend to believe whatever the media chooses to print or say rather than attempting to find out how much they could save by using our card. Granted, there will be greater savings on certain medications than others. However, you will never know until you download your card, print it out, and take it in to your local pharmacy.

When you consider that, in some cases, you can save as much as 75% on certain medications and that the USA Rx pharmacy discount card is now accepted at over 60,000 pharmacies throughout the US, it makes sense to use it and see if you benefit from doing so. Despite the fact that so much negative press exists about this issue, these cards have been reviewed by a number of major media and organizations such as:

  • ABC News
  • CNN
  • Good Housekeeping
  • NBC’s Today Show

In many instances, they have recommended these different savings cards while numerous physician groups and thousands of doctors nationwide support their use.

 

Prescription Pricing And Discounts

Whenever you visit your local pharmacy to pick up your medication, the price you wind up paying is going to be classified in one of the following 3 ways:

  • Cash price – if you don’t have health insurance or you do but there is no prescription drug coverage, this is typically the price you will pay for your medication.
  • Club price – occasionally, pharmacies will offer a “club” discounted pricing structure to those individuals who are members. It doesn’t matter if you have health insurance or not. All you have to do is join their club (some are FREE, others have a paid membership).
  • Negotiated or “pharmacy coupon” price – pharmacies will contract with an insurance company in order to offer discounts on certain prescription drugs (research Pharmacy Benefit Manager online). If you are insured, you will have a co-pay that is a discounted price. This is usually expressed as a flat fee or a percentage of the total cost.

As a result of this pricing structure, USA Rx will research the pricing at all the major name pharmacies throughout the US in order to provide you with a way to comparison shop the price of your specific prescription medication(s) and find the best pricing available.
