Online Prescription Program Offsets BP's Lack of Health Insurance Support to Newly Unemployed

Jun 21, 2010, 10:35 ET from, Inc. is Offering Discount Medication Cards To Displaced Workers Without Health Insurance  Who Were Affected by the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

BATON ROUGE, La., Jun. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --, a region-specific discount prescription medication program, is offering free discount medication cards to individuals who were immediately displaced following the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. These cards come at a pivotal time as BP has not yet offered health insurance support to those who are newly unemployed following the company's responsibility in the April oil spill.  

Health insurance plans allow for individuals to purchase life-saving medications at affordable rates, but as fishing, tourism and drilling jobs vanish from the region as a result of the greatest environmental disaster in the country's history, many Gulf residents are without health insurance and consequently without their necessary medications.

The program offers a way for those affected by the oil spill to save on prescription medications and consequently maintain their health. The discount medication cards do not take the place of health insurance, but they offer savings on medications.  Patients can on average save 49 to 75 percent on medications.

Caregivers, charitable organizations, churches, government agencies, and employers who do not provide health insurance are asked to help distribute discount medication cards to  those in need of financial assistance with their prescription medications.

Caregivers should instruct patients in need of prescription medication assistance to visit to receive their coupons. For those without Internet access, coupons can be downloaded and printed by healthcare providers and given to those who need them.

There is no limit on the amount of coupons that can be distributed and the program is free to all.

The coupons can be used at chain pharmacies like Rite-Aid, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Walmart, Albertsons and many more in addition to thousands of independent pharmacies. The GulfCoastDrugCard program offers numerous benefits such as no waiting periods, instant activation, no pre-existing exclusions and no deductibles.
