Canadians living or vacationing in the United States and any other individual with limited or no prescription drug coverage can benefit from a prescription drug savings card. Instead of paying full price for medication, card members can save money whenever they purchase prescription drugs. People who already have insurance coverage may still find the card useful, as it can discount medications that are not covered by their health plan. The prescription drug savings card can also be especially useful to seniors enrolled in Medicare; especially when they are in the “donut hole”. The drug savings card can save individuals an average of 15% on brand drugs and 55% on generic drugs.
The website below supplies more information on this program. An individual can print the Prescription Drug Savings card from the website and take it to the pharmacy to fill their prescription. Pharmacies will enter the card information and the discounted price on the prescription based on the pharmacy’s agreement with the program. The card can be used over and over again.
The Prescription Drug Savings Card is absolutely free. There is also a Pet Drug Plan that is also free and can be used in a similar manner.
