“Medical Association Announces Prescription Assistance Program for Patients”

[Expand/Collapse]

(Montgomery, AL)??? Patients who need help with the cost of prescription medications can now get a free prescription assistance card made available by the state???s largest association of physicians.

The Medical Association of the State of Alabama announced plans today to distribute the Alabama Rx Card, a discount drug card free to Alabama residents. The discount card generates savings of up to 75 percent on prescription drugs at hundreds of participating pharmacies statewide.

The discount card helps uninsured and under-insured residents afford prescription medications, which has already saved Alabama residents more than $25 million since inception.

???Alabama???s physicians are committed to our patients??? health and well-being, so helping patients get the medications they need is a priority. Patients can???t get well if they can???t get their prescriptions,?? said Medical Association President Buddy Smith Jr., M.D., of Lineville.

The Alabama Rx Card discounts will benefit patients whose health insurance coverage does not include prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts and high deductible health plans. Those who do have prescription coverage with their health insurance can use this program to get discounts on medications that are not covered by their insurance plan. Patients will have the ability to go to the Alabama Rx Card website to see prices for their particular prescriptions and determine the level of discount they might receive.

All Alabamians are eligible regardless of their current prescription coverage benefits.

Alabama residents can print a free card, search drug pricing, and locate participating pharmacies at www.alabamarxcard.com, www.masalink.org, or www.alabamamedicine.org.

“Free Drug Prescription Card Promises Big Savings”

[Expand/Collapse]

(Montgomery, AL) – Who said there is no such thing as a free lunch? Well, a free medical prescription discount card may be the closest thing to it.

A Baton Rouge, Louisiana, company is launching the so-called Alabama Rx Card program on November 1 for Alabama residents. It's geared toward the uninsured and even the insured if...that's the key word...if all of your prescribed medicine isn't covered.

Pam Lynch feels the pain when she totals the amount she spends every year on prescription medicines. $1,500 out of her own pocket. "I have insurance and co-pay but it doesn't cover everything," said Lynch.

But relief just may be on the way in the form of the Alabama Rx free drug discount card. Joe Shaw says it is so simple. A free discount card, literally free to anyone.

"It doesn't matter what age, income or health, they can get the card," Shaw said.

Just log on to www.alabamarxcard.com and fill out the Freedom and Spirit program cards. Hit print and there have you have it your very own Alabama Rx card. Both cards are essentially the same but one or the other may give you a better discount on your medicines depending on what the medication is and what pharmacy you go to.

"The discounts are anywhere between 10% and 70% with the average being around 30% and the card covers standard and generic drugs," said Shaw. At an east Montgomery pharmacy, veteran pharmacist Mike Newman initially thought this sounded a little too good to be true but he is convinced this is the real deal; no catch, no hidden costs, no trickery.

"I believe we'll be doing a lot of good for the public with this," said Newman.

You have to wonder though who is paying for the free discount prescription drug cards. Shaw says pharmacies and the pharmaceutical companies are with one goal in mind.

"It's meant to drive people to pharmacies who otherwise might not be able to afford medicines," Shaw said.

By the way there is what Shaw considers one small downside. "I wish we had 100% of all the medications covered but nobody has that," Shaw said.

Still, it's apparently a good enough deal for Pam Lynch to give it a try. She plans to sign up with the hope it'll be good medicine for the pocketbook.

Joe Shaw claims Americans will save $100 million dollars this year in prescription savings, and Alabama becomes the 16th state where this card is available.

The Alabama Department of Senior Services, a state agency that caters to seniors 65 and over, says based on its research this is a legitimate program, but remember.. anyone can sign up for this. If you don't have a computer, Shaw says just walk into any of the major pharmacies and ask for it.
