Medicationdiscountcard.com Offers New Ways to Save Money on Costly Prescriptions With their No-application Pharmacy Discount Card
Date:6/18/2013

Margate City, NJ (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

The cost of prescription drugs has long been a source of worry for those with chronic conditions requiring indefinite treatment. In 2012, Americans spent an astonishing $325.7 billion on prescription drugs, a number that might have been higher were it not for the recent recession. Medicationdiscountcard.com is a service dedicated to helping people save money at the pharmacy. The creators of the site are serious about providing a tangible public benefit, and so they recommend a number of steps that anyone can take to curb their prescription drug spending.

The main benefit of Medicationdiscountcard.com is that the free, printable prescription discount card is accepted at major pharmacy chains throughout the country. These cards offer potential savings of up to 75% off the retail price of thousands of prescription medications. Even people with medical insurance and pharmacy benefits may find that Medicationdiscountcard.com offers a more attractive deal. However, these cards are not the only means to save money on necessary medications. Instead, it’s important to explore every possible source of relief when faced with an expensive prescription.

First, many large retailers, such as [Walmart offer steep discounts on certain generic drugs. Prescriptions for some of the most common generic drugs only cost $4 on these programs. Healthcare consumers are encouraged to discuss these programs with their doctor to ensure that a brand name (and more expensive) medication isn’t prescribed when a generic will suffice. When doctors know the financial realities of their patients, they can factor that into their care plan. Some major pharmacies even offer free prescriptions for specific drugs, such as basic antibiotics. Publix and Meijer are just two examples of retailers offering this remarkable perk to shoppers.

Consumers are advised to always shop around when filling a prescription, as comparison shopping is an easy way to manage the costs of healthcare. Even with a discount card in hand, such as one provided by Medicationdiscountcard.com, finding the lowest baseline price on a particular drug will ensure the best possible deal. Comparison shopping is especially important for the uninsured and those on a fixed income. Similarly, requesting a 90-day prescription (when possible) may ultimately cost less than a 30-day prescription, as well as resulting in fewer trips to the pharmacy.

A practice known as pill splitting can also be a great way to save money on pharmaceutical costs. Some medications have similar pricing, regardless of the dosage. Therefore, sometimes a 20mg tablet can be split into 10mg dosages, giving the consumer double the medication for the same amount of money. However, this practice can be dangerous and is generally discouraged by the FDA. To find out if a specific medication can be split safely, please consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Medicationdiscountcard.com is simple to use, with no tedious applications or waiting period. After navigating to the site, consumers can check a list of most drugs covered, and then print out their free discount card. After giving the card to their pharmacist, all prescriptions filled in the future at that location will be eligible for discounts.

Medication discount cards function much the same way as a pharmacy benefit provided by major medical insurance. A third party negotiates lower prices with pharmacies and passes this savings on to the insured. While a discount card is not insurance, it does enable people without insurance to take advantage of the same price structures.

Other discount card services may claim to offer broad coverage of medications and significant savings, but Medicationdiscountcard.com his positioned itself as a leader in a couple of ways. Ease of use is certainly one perk; the site’s cards are accepted at more than 59,000 pharmacies nationwide, including all of the major chains and “big box” retailers. Likewise, the no-hassle, no-obligation nature of the service is a major incentive for busy consumers.

Medicationdiscountcard.com respects the privacy of its members. The website will never sell or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information.
