Other cards claim to offer savings but almost none provide the cost savings we do. In addition while most other cards sell your information for a profit, we respect your personal privacy and will never sell, rent, or distribute any personally identifiable information about you.
2. If I have insurance, will this card provide any extra benefit?
YES - For many Generic medications using our card instead of insurance may provide an even greater discount. In addition if your insurance does not cover certain drugs (ex - cosmetic drugs, brand names, prenatal vitamins, etc) then this card may save you money! Also, if your insurance requires you to pay a deductible on your brand name drugs before covering them, then this card may be of benefit to you!
3. Does this card provide discounts on prescription drugs and over-the counter drugs?
This card only provides discounts for prescription drugs prescribed to you by a doctor. It does not cover over-the-counter drugs and medications like Zyrtec, Claritin, Tylenol, etc.
4. Does this card cost me anything?
NO - The Pharmacy Savings Card alone does not cost you anything
5. What is the average savings on medications with this card?
The discount range varies depending on whether you are purchasing brand name or generic drugs and which brand name and generic medications you are buying. Your savings are similar to that of many prescription drug plans. The average savings range between 10-75% off retail prices.
6. Are there any qualifications required to participate?
NO - Everyone qualifies and there are no health restrictions.
7. Does the pharmacy savings card work for all members of my family?
Yes! All members of your family can use our card to receive discounts.
8. If I change pharmacies, is the card still valid?
The first time you go to a new pharmacy they will need to add your information into their computer systems. If you lose your old card simply print up a new one and give it to the pharmacist.
9. Which pharmacies accept the pharmacy savings card?
The pharmacy savings card is valid at nearly all pharmacies in the United States, and most pharmacies in Puerto Rico and Guam. Go to our Drug Cost/Pharmacy Lookup tool to locate pharmacies in your area.
10. My pharmacy isn't on the list, can they participate?
Yes. There are some pharmacies who accept the pharmacy savings card that are not on our list, if you find one please email us and we'll update the list. If they are not a current partner and are interested, email us and we'll contact them.
11. Is my personal privacy protected after I use the card?
We don't sell, rent, or share consumer information with 3rd parties. Many other card companies sell the consumer's information as an additional revenue source.
Almost every pharmacy in the United States, Puerto Rico and Guam will accept the Medication Discount Card. This includes major chains like Walmart, Albertsons, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens and Publix.
14. Wait - my local / favorite pharmacy is on the list. What do I do?
Check with the pharmacy first. There may be a few locations around the country who take the Discount card - but aren't in our system quite yet. If this happens, contact us so that we can update our Locator page. If the pharmacy says that they're not participating - but are interested in joining up with the Card - drop us a line at the same e-mail address so that we can sign them up!
15. I lost my card - what do I do now?
Just print out a new one at http://medicationdiscountcard.com/print/. If this happens - or if you change pharmacies - all you have to do is show your pharmacist the new card, and they'll add your information to the system.
16. How much do I have to pay for the Card?
The card is absolutely 100% free. The only thing you pay for is your medication, after the discount from the Card.
17. Who is covered by the Card?
Anyone and everyone - there are no health restrictions or limitations for eligibility. Your entire family can make use of the Card's discounts; just print one out for each family member.
18. How much can I save by using this card?
On average, a Medication Discount Card user can save between 10 to 75% off of the regular, retail price of the medication needed. The discount will vary depending on what type and brand of drug (generic or brand-name) you are purchasing.
19. How do I get my savings?
Simply present your card to the pharmacist. He will input the cards information into his systems and you will receive an instant discount.
20. What kinds of drugs are discounted?
The Medication Discount Card provides discounts for prescription drugs only. That means that common over-the-counter medications (like Advil, for example) are NOT eligible for discounts with the Card.
21. I already have insurance. Why do I need the Medication Discount Card?
There are three reasons why you could use your Card in place of insurance:
For some generic medications, the amount of money you'll save by using the Card would actually be greater than if you use your medical insurance.
If your insurance company makes you pay a deductible on your medications, you could use the Card in place of spending the deductible money.
The Card oftentimes covers prescriptions for medications - like cosmetic drugs, prenatal vitamins, weight-loss drugs or anti-smoking remedies - that are not usually covered by insurance.
22. How can I be sure that the information I give you for the Card will be protected?
You can feel safe with us. Unlike a lot of other discount card organizations, we never share or sell your information to third-party companies. Your personal privacy will always be honored by the Medication Discount Card.
