Center for Medicines & Healthy Aging(C) and BidRx(R) Partner to Help Consumers Save on Prescription Medications
Date:7/17/2009

ALEXANDRIA, Va., July 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The majority of Americans take one or more prescription medicines on a regular basis, and 40% of community-dwelling seniors take five or more. With the recent downturn in the economy and increase in unemployment, many people are looking for ways to save on prescription drug costs.

The Center for Medicines & Healthy Aging(C) (CMHA) -- a consumer-focused resource developed by the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) Foundation -- provides reliable, authoritative medication management information for older adults and their caregivers. The information, materials, and tools provided on the CMHA website (www.medsandaging.org) enable better self-care management and lead to healthier and more productive lives.

One section of the CMHA website provides numerous strategies for saving money on prescription drugs. Among these strategies is purchasing prescription drugs through legitimate online pharmacies. A valuable resource for purchasing prescription drugs online is BidRx(R), which is described and linked to on this section of the CMHA site. A website for patients, providers, caregivers, and benefit sponsors, BidRx.com is a competitive marketplace for finding the best value on medications. As online travel sites and online auction sites have revolutionized how consumers find inexpensive airfares, hotels, and other goods and services, BidRx(R) does the same for prescriptions.

BidRx(R) is a value-driven, interoperable system accessible by patients, prescribers, pharmacists, insurance companies, employers, pharmaceutical companies, patient advocates, government agencies, and others. Users learn about the cost of prescriptions and similar products and can act on the information to save money. Patients and prescribers get information about prescription options and prices at the BidRx
