California Academy of Physician Assistants Launches Prescription Drug Discount Card to Help California Families Stay Healthy, Manage Rising Costs of Health Care
Date:12/13/2011

stretch their budget dollars, every little bit helps. CAPA hopes that all Californians, particularly those from vulnerable or low-income communities, will use the discount card to help afford treatment and stay healthy," added Glassman. "Ensuring that all Californians have access to high quality care is not only the right thing to do from a health perspective, but also makes good financial sense. When patients are healthy and effectively managing their medical conditions, it can mean lower long-term health care costs in the form of fewer treatments or fewer visits to doctors and emergency rooms that are often associated with worsening conditions."

To use the CAPA drug discount card, a California consumer simply presents the discount card to his or her pharmacist along with the desired prescription, and the pharmacist tells the consumer how much can be saved using the card. The drug discount card is accepted at over 60,000 pharmacies nationwide, including Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and other regional chains and local stores. The card cannot be combined with insurance. The card can, however, be used instead of insurance if the insurance has no drug coverage, there is a high drug deductible, there is a low medicine cap that has been met, there is a high copay and the card offers a better price, or if a consumer is in the Medicare Part D "donut hole."

NeedyMeds is a Massachusetts-based nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive information on assistance available for people having difficulties paying for their medications or health care.
