Prescription Drug Discount Program

Prescription drugs can be quite costly for those who are uninsured or underinsured. Prohibitive costs have been shown to lead to poor patient outcomes because medications are not taken as prescribed. Medicare has taken steps to address this problem with their Medicare Advantage value based plans (see referenced "Medicare Expands Value Based Plans" article for more information).

Healthcare providers should let their patients know that there are alternative options available to help them obtain the medications they need to properly manage their condition(s). There are several prescription discount plans available in the market and depending on the medication needed, different programs can meet different needs. One free program is the FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card. Click on the referenced link to learn more.
