Rising prescription costs. Less employer healthcare benefits. Businesses cutting the hours of full-time employees. These are just a few of the effects of the Affordable Healthcare Act.
With the economy already struggling, many Americans are finding it even more difficult to afford insurance. Worse, people who currently do have insurance are struggling to pay for their medications. In fact, in 2009 alone, 25 million Americans chose not to fill out a prescription because of high prescription costs.
The financial difficulties of a weak economy and the side effects of Obamacare have forced a growing number of Americans to turn to alternative methods of paying for their medications. One of these alternative methods is Discount Drug Network
Fighting Back Against Rising Prescription Costs
Working with pharmacies, Discount Drug Network helps to provide consumers with medications at excellent discounts. By getting the pharmacies to cover the costs of the discounts, Discount Drug Network is able to provide the cards free to anyone. Most prescription plans only cover a limited number of drugs, but the Discount Drug Network card works on any drug that is approved by the FDA.
Although these sorts of programs are commonly associated with the uninsured, the discount card can also be used by the insured.
“If you have a $15 co-pay for prescription costs, the card can get that co-pay down to $6 or $7,” says company COO Ron Douglass.
And the card isn’t just for individuals or families: Discount Drug Network also makes it easy for companies to order cards in bulk to distribute to employees.
Discount Drug Network’s discount card can be used for everything from weight loss to dental care, making it just as good as having an insurance company on your side.
Applying for the card is also incredibly easy. It can be found online and printed out immediately, meaning that you are only a few keystrokes away from great savings on your prescription costs.
