If you have diabetes, you already know the cost of medication, insulin supplies and other medical necessities can be way too high. In the U.S., people diagnosed with diabetes spend almost $10,000 per year treating the disease and related complications.
Fortunately, there are several programs to help you get prescription savings. Prescription discounts can help whether you have health insurance or do not. Read on to learn more about how these programs can benefit you today.
Most Rx savings programs give you a special card that you can use to get discounts when you check out at the pharmacy.
If you do not have health insurance, a pharmacy discount card is a helpful way to lower the cost of your medication.
If you do have health insurance, a prescription savings card can still help!
Generally, you will have to choose between using your insurance or using your Rx discount card. The solution is easy: When you go to purchase your medication, ask the pharmacist if the savings program discount on your medication makes it less than the cost with insurance. If the prescription card cost is lower, choose not to use insurance and take the savings.
You can apply for most pharmacy discount cards online. Just go to the website, fill out your information and get your card in the mail.
