I Saved Over $250.00 On Medicine

I ran out of medicine and did not even have enough to do me for even another day. I had been putting it off because my insurance was not going to pay on it. I did not have the money. The card said up to 75% off on prescriptions. I went to the pharmacy with both my cards, still on the print out of the page. I gave both of them to my pharmacist and my prescription. I told him that my insurance would not pay for it so I needed him to run it through these two cards and to use the one that was cheaper. He said, they are both alike. I showed him that the number was different on both of them. He said it would be about 10 minutes. I walked around the store for a while and then went back to the pharmacy. The Pharmacist was surprised and delighted at the price I received from the card. The price of the medicine I needed was $279.00. The one card brought the price down to $69.00 but the other card brought it down to........ are you ready for this???....... $15.00. That is right, my medicine cost me $15.00 I was so excited!. I gave the pharmacist the web site address so he could pass it on to others who needed it. http://www.freedrugcard.us/?ovmtc=content&ovadid=1000105522 Everyone needs their own card. All you need to do is type in your first and last name and email address. I used my email address for all three cards. The individual name will appear on the cards. So you do need to use a different name for the cards. But Remember to print both cards for each person. Also if you refer 5 people to the program, you will also get a Free Vision Program card as well. To get this card, just click on the "tell friends" link on the main page.

Thanks for this info! I'm passing it along to my parents who are senior citizens and on a fixed income.

Thank you, I sent the link to my parents, as they do not have any prescription coverage at this point. I hope they can use it.

All I can say is, look forward to the day when (in the US) medical care is the responsibility of the State ... for ALL! Here in the UK we don't have to think twice about going to the doctor on the grounds of cost and all prescriptions cost the same - but more like $30 than $15 - and if you are on benefits, pregnant or over 60, they are free. I have been having treatment for something for 15 years now. When I asked if the cost of treatment had any bearing on the kind or level or treatment I was offered, I was looked at as if I were mad! In fact, when I enquired further about the cost of various options, they simply were not able to tell me because they did not know!

I do wish they would do something like that in the US because health care is really expensive. Medications are just too high as well.

now that I am not working I have my meds free and no meds are not free for everyone in canada, they are not covered until our medicare which is for medical services not medication. but we do have a government plan that pays most of the prescriptions, for example before when I was working, I had 100.00 of medicine to take per month, and the government payed 80.00 and I payed 20.00
