MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla., Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- USA MedicalCard announces plans to expand the national mailing of its free pharmacy discount card that can save consumers up to 75% off brand-name drugs and generics. The company would like to ensure the cards reach people with the most significant need and is focused on providing savings on almost all prescriptions.
Even with the Affordable Healthcare Act firmly in place – for many who rely on one or several prescription medicines, the costs may remain prohibitive depending on a number of factors: plan cost, the states they live in, or the medicines they require. For those who are uninsured, or underinsured, the cost savings affiliated with the USA MedicalCard could make a world of difference.
"An estimated 100 million people in America have inadequate prescription coverage and often face difficult decisions on whether to buy food or needed prescriptions," Jordan Sessler, President of USA MedicalCard explained. "It's USA MedicalCard's mission to reach out to families, individuals and seniors who are most at risk and whose health would be compromised without the value our pharmacy discount card provides. There is no catch. We are simply able to share savings of up to 75% on name-brand and generic prescriptions with USA MedicalCard users because of our partnerships with top Pharmacy Benefit Managers," said Sessler .
The USA MedicalCard is pre-activated, free, and accepted at more than 60,000 neighborhood drug stores and recognized pharmacies like Rite Aid, CVS, Kmart, Target, Walmart, and others. An easy way to find out which pharmacies accept the card is to visit www.usamedicalcard.com and enter a zip code to locate the nearest drug store in that area.
The savings that recipients can expect when using the USA MedicalCard can be significant and are up to 75% off brand-name drugs and generics. One card per family is all that's needed. More importantly, USA MedicalCard would like to be clear that the card is not and should not be mistaken for insurance; and it is not affiliated with any government-sponsored program.
Recipients of the mailing may be assured that there are no drawbacks in using the card. Quite simply, the card provides a free way for people who are not insured to get access to lower cost prescription medications. Those with insurance and high out-of-pocket costs, as well as Medicare patients who fall within the Part D "donut hole," can also benefit from using it.
USA MedicalCard encourages individuals to comparison shop for the best value. Ask the pharmacy what your prescription would cost with and without the USA MedicalCard's free prescription discount card.
