MARGATE CITY, N.J., Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The slow, rocky beginnings of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have raised concerns about what might happen if millions of people choose to remain uninsured. The early numbers paint a troubling picture -- not enough people are signing up through the Health Insurance Marketplaces to make the program sustainable. For those that go without insurance, Medicationdiscountcard.com provides a backup for dealing with at least one aspect of healthcare costs: the high price of prescription drugs.
Medicationdiscountcard.com has no eligibility requirements, and printing out a prescription discount card takes only minutes. Users simply show the card to their local pharmacist, who enters the necessary data one time; after the first visit, users will see discounts of up to 75% on a laundry list of medications, both brand name and generic. Prescription discount cards are accepted at all major, national pharmacies, including Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid.
Jeremy Duboys, spokesperson for Medicationdiscountcard.com, framed the issue this way: "People without health insurance will still be faced with enormous bills in the event of a serious illness, especially one requiring long-term treatment. Prescription drugs can quickly erode a family budget. Medicationdiscountcard.com is one option for cutting these costs."
Without health insurance, the importance of healthy living is magnified: a balanced diet, regular exercise and 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night are essential to keeping the immune system humming along smoothly. Of course, even the healthiest people get sick from time to time. "Don't get sick" isn't a healthcare policy that works in the long run.
For the chronically uninsured, hospitals that accept Medicare cannot legally deny care. Similarly, free clinics are expected remain a part of the landscape in many corners of the nation. Yet, there's no significant program for helping people deal with expensive prescriptions. To that end, Medicationdiscountcard.com may mean the difference between prescriptions being affordable or just out of reach.
Duboys added: "People are skeptical when I say there's no catch to using Medicationdiscountcard.com. But when they try it, they find out it's a foolproof way to ease the burden of prescription drug costs."
Data released by the Department of Health and Human Services indicates that national enrollment in marketplace-based health insurance plans is falling well short of expectations. From October 1 through November 2, slightly more than 100,000 Americans selected a health plan. Another million had gone through the application process but had not yet decided upon a plan. The sign-up rate through this period was about 20% of what the Obama administration had hoped for.
The so-far paltry enrollment rates on the Health Insurance Marketplace will eventually become an issue even for those who have selected a plan. The law depends upon a certain level of participation to be self-sustaining. If the numbers don't balance out soon, Congress may have just the ammunition it need to strike down the ACA, meaning that the uninsured population will balloon once more. Should that happen, the demand for cost-saving measures, like those available through Medicationdiscountcard.com, will certainly rise.
Medicationdiscountcard.com was started to provide discounts on prescription drugs to those who need it most. Our goal is to provide you with the largest savings possible when compared to other cards. We invite you to compare the savings our card will provide to other leading providers.
