Date:8/21/2009

Now you can save up to 75% off the price of prescriptions with the free NeedyMeds iPhone app.

(Vocus) August 21, 2009 -- NeedyMeds, the premier source of information on programs that help people who can't afford their medicine and health care costs, has released an iPhone version of its drug discount card. Simply by showing the pharmacist an image on their iPhones, people can save up to 75% off the price of their prescriptions. The app includes instructions for the patient and pharmacist. The savings are immediate and apply when you fill your prescription.

The NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card has helped thousands of people save on the cost of their prescription medications. The card is accepted at 53,000 pharmacies including all the major national chains. There is no registration process or fee. Anyone can use the card without regard to income, insurance status, residency, or age. If you have insurance or receive drug benefits from a state or federal program, you can use the card for a drug that is not covered by your insurance or program, or if using it in place of the insurance will cost less.

With many Medicare Part D participants now falling into the dreaded "donut hole" with no hope of spending enough to get out, the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card can help them save on prescription costs.

The NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card can be used for over-the-counter medicine if you doctor writes a prescription for it and for pet prescription medicines purchased at a pharmacy.

A paper version of the card can be downloaded from the NeedyMeds website , printed, and taken to the pharmacy. NeedyMeds also offers a plastic version for a small charge.

The iPhone app has an image of both sides of the card and information on the drug discount program, NeedyMeds and a link to their website. The small app (0.2MB) works on all iPhone and iPod Touch models.
