TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Keenan, the largest privately held insurance brokerage and consulting firm in California, has announced the introduction of a new pharmacy discount card program called Keenan Saver Rx. The program is designed to help a wide range of individuals take advantage of significant discounts offered by pharmacy benefit companies.

"We are continually looking for programs that provide innovative benefit solutions and significant value for our clients and their employees," said Henry Loubet, chief strategy officer of Keenan. "Many organizations need flexibility and options for meeting the needs of various employee groups. Keenan Saver Rx offers a way for these organizations to provide an important pharmacy discount benefit to individuals who might not otherwise have access to such a program."

The new Keenan Saver Rx program is a free service available to part-time employees; friends and family members who are uninsured or under insured; retirees who have reached the Medicare "doughnut hole"; and individuals with pharmacy benefits when purchasing any non-covered pharmaceuticals.

For organizations participating in the Keenan Saver Rx program, there are several important advantages:

  • No eligibility requirements and no barriers to entry. No need to collect names or go through an enrollment process. The card can be given out to, and used by, anyone with a valid prescription.
  • No cost to the card holder to obtain the card or benefit from the discount.
  • Cardholder always pays lowest of available discounts.
  • Acceptance nationwide at 58,000 pharmacies including major chains.
  • Best prices for the top 20 drugs in the industry.
  • Dedicated, 24/7, toll-free number for customer service.

Keenan has chosen Envision Rx Options, a pharmacy benefits management company that leads the industry with Pharmacy Discount Card programs, as the administrator of Keenan Saver Rx.

"Envision is happy to be a partner with Keenan as we both recognize the need for those individuals without prescription coverage can benefit by using the Keenan Saver Rx Card. Envision's expertise in this area is recognized by Keenan and should allow Keenan to enter new and existing markets and offer a superior program," said Kevin M. Nagle, President and CEO.
