Discount Prescription Card: Should You Get One?
If you’re facing high prescription costs each month and wondering how to save money, a discount prescription card may be the answer. According to a 2012 survey, 1 in 4 Americans have skipped filling a prescription because they couldn’t afford to pay for their medication. Fortunately, for those without insurance, a discount prescription card can make a big difference.
GiveForward recently partnered with MediBenefits to help families on our site save money on their prescriptions. Here are a few of the reasons we are thrilled to offer this service to our users:
A MediBenefits discount prescription card is free.
Some discount prescription cards require you to pay a “membership fee” to receive discounts. MediBenefits offers their cards free of charge.
MediBenefits cards are accepted at over 60k pharmacies.
The Pharmacy Finder tool on their website makes it easy to search for pharmacies near you that already accept their card. This means you don’t have to waste time calling pharmacies to price check yourself.
There’s no paperwork required.
To begin saving on prescriptions, all you have to do is download a free card, print it and go to your pharmacy. Or, if you have a smart phone, you can opt to have your card sent to you by email or by text so you have it with you at all times.
We’ve seen it work.
We offered a discount prescription card to GiveForward families who called us to inquire about additional help. On average those families saved 52% on their prescriptions.
