Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) May 26, 2016
On Memorial Day, Hope For Heroes and USA Medical Card will remember the men and women who lost their lives in military battle for the country. The nonprofit Hope For Heroes partnered with the leading provider of free pharmacy discount cards in 2015 to provide more programs that empower independence for disabled military veterans, as well as police, firemen, and EMS professionals across the country, and help more people afford necessary prescriptions.
"Every day, my foundation remembers those who have given their lives to our great country. With support from USA Medical Card, our group has been able to expand our work with our nation's disabled heroes," said Mitch Serlin, Founder and President of Hope For Heroes. "We have been able to help servicemen and servicewomen heal and experience the personal accomplishment that can come from participation in our programs."
Currently, funds from USA Medical Card are helping a capital campaign to build a second facility. The new location will provide a broader array of outdoor activities and allow the organization to significantly increase the number of heroes that supported annually.
The free pharmacy discount card benefitting Hope for Heroes can be used at more than 60,000 pharmacies across the country — at local, regional and national chains such as CVS, Costco, Target, Rite Aid, Walmart and Walgreens. The donation from USA Medical Card is raised at no cost to cardholders.
The pre-activated card can reduce the price of brand name and generic prescription drugs by as much as 75%. Eligible prescription medications include those frequently prescribed for heart disease, hypothyroidism, asthma, diabetes and other health conditions. It can be used by individuals to complement their health insurance plan — to help fill in gaps — or by the uninsured. The card is commonly used on Zolpidem, Amoxicillin, Lisinopril, Metformin and thousands of other popular medications.
"It is a great honor to be working with Hope For Heroes and making a difference in the lives of the nation's heroes. Our program helps people save money on prescriptions while helping wounded heroes restore a healthy, active lifestyle," said USA Medical Card Co-Founder and President Jordan Sessler. "This sponsorship will help ensure more funds are available to help strengthen a community of hope and healing."
