There are almost 50 million people in America who do not have any form of health insurance. There are also people who have health insurance but their current policy does not cover the cost of prescriptions. One way to help with the cost of drug prescriptions is to get a free discount prescription card.
You may be wondering if you qualify for this program. Luckily, because the system is a benefits program you will qualify for the card regardless of how old you are and whether you are employed or not. You do need to be a citizen of the United States of America to qualify for the card.
If you want to get your hands on one of these discount cards all you will need to do is fill in an online application form. You can then print it and use it in any pharmacy in the United States. You are also able to use the card at an online pharmacy if you wish to do so.
Once you have done this you will need to give the details of your card to the pharmacy. They will take your details and store it in their computer systems. This means that the next time you go to the pharmacy they will already have you card information. The benefit of this is that you will not have to wait a long time for your medication to be prepared.
This benefit program is very much welcomed by the public. This card can give people up to a 20 percent discount on more than 20,000 medicines. As medication is often very expensive this savings could mean that a person could use the extra money on essential everyday costs such as food and rent. They can now do this without putting their health at risk.
