Using the coupons and cards provide savings of up to 75% on almost all prescription drugs both brand and generic. There are no FEES to join and you will never be charged for the cards or coupons you receive.

How do I know this is legitimate? How can they offer these discounts?

The Prescription Discount Program is offered courtesy of USA Medical Card, a trusted, privately held company. The organization delivers savings on prescription drugs, through distribution of their pharmacy discount card. Its partnership with two of the nation’s leading Pharmacy Benefit Managers, with the power to negotiate significant discounts, makes it possible to pass these savings on to you.

How does the program make money?

The Prescription Discount Program gets paid by its partner Pharmacy Benefit Managers. The cards or coupons you receive through our program are 100% FREE and there are no FEES to join.

How easy is it to use the coupons and card?

Bring the coupon(s) or card with you when you are getting your prescription(s) filled. Present to the pharmacist when you are ready to pay for your medicines. The coupons and the card have a unique code that will tell the pharmacist exactly how much your prescription will be discounted. The discounts may vary based on the drug, the pharmacy or the state you reside in.

Who is eligible or can anyone use this program?

The Prescription Discount Program is open to anyone who needs help affording their medications – insured or uninsured. Anyone who is coping with high-out-of-pocket costs on their prescriptions can use either the coupon(s) or card, to help bring down prescription costs greatly. There are no restrictions, no waiting, and no paperwork. The coupons and the card are 100% FREE, never expire and can be used immediately.

How do I get the Prescription Discount coupons and/or card?

There are several easy options when you visit the website. Simply use the “browse drugs” to find your particular medication. When you claim your discount, you can elect to PRINT, EMAIL or SEND the coupon to your mobile device. You can also fill out the request form to have a prescription discount card mailed to you. Until it arrives, print or jot down the information on the card that you see on your computer screen (BIN, GRP and PCN codes), and present that to your pharmacist when you get your prescription filled. That will allow you to start saving immediately. The program is absolutely FREE, no waiting, no paperwork, and the card comes pre-activated.

How the Program Works

How long will it take for the card to be mailed to me? What if I need discounts immediately or don’t have a printer?

Allow at least 10 days for delivery of the card. Until it arrives, print or jot down the information on the card that you see on your computer screen (BIN, GRP and PCN codes), and present that to your pharmacist when you get your prescription filled. That will allow you to start saving right away. You can also use the coupons for immediate savings on your prescription needs.

Is there a limit to the amount of coupons I can get or how many times I can use the card?

No. You can use as many coupons and the card as many times as needed, for any member of your family or for a friend who might need help paying for their prescription drugs.

Will my pharmacy honor the coupon(s) and card? What if they don’t know what to do?

The Prescription Discount Program coupons and card are good at virtually every pharmacy – over 60,000 nationwide. However, if you have trouble filling your prescription because your pharmacist is not familiar with the coupons and card provided by the program, we can help. Have your pharmacist call 1-844-633-7283 to be walked through the simple process.

Can I check to see if my medications are covered before filling?

Yes. When you visit the website, go to “browse drugs”, and you can see if your prescription is covered. Remember that savings may vary based on the drug, the pharmacy or the state where you reside.

On average, how much can I expect to save with this program?

The Prescription Discount Program provides savings of up to 75% on both generic and brand medications. This is true whether you use the coupon(s) or the card. You should be aware that the price of your prescription medication and the discount you receive may vary based on the drug, the pharmacy or the state you reside in.

What can I do if the discounts are less than expected?

Unfortunately this does happen because different pharmacies charge different prices for the same drugs. Sometimes this is the case even if the pharmacies are directly across from each other. Always ask your pharmacist how much of a discount you will receive, before you fill your prescription.

How does the Prescription Discount Program protect my personal information?

The Prescription Discount Program maintains HIPAA-standard security safeguards to protect the privacy of individually identifiable health information. We do not sell or share protected health information (PHI) with third parties.

About the Program and Insurance

Is the Prescription Discount Program insurance?

No. This is not insurance, nor is it affiliated with the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), or any other government program. This is why you do not have to wait to begin saving with our program, there is no paperwork and it is 100% FREE.

How does the Prescription Discount Program work if I have insurance?

Even if you have insurance, you can still use our coupons or the card. The card can be used in lieu of your insurance or other discount cards if the savings it provides is higher. Check the cost of medications using your insurance plan and what it would cost using the program’s coupons and card. If you have a deductible for prescriptions, you may be able to apply prescriptions filled using your coupons or card toward it. Please contact your insurance company to find out, because not all plans are the same.

Can I use the coupons and card on prescription drugs excluded by my insurance?

Yes. The coupons and the card can be used on almost all prescription drugs including those not covered under certain insurance plans, and provides savings of up to 75%.

About the Program and Medicare

If I am a senior on Medicare can I still use the coupons or card?

Yes, if you are on Medicare Part D, the coupons or card can be used to help with cost of drugs once you’ve hit the “donut hole” or if you are purchasing a prescription not on the drug list. If you are still uncertain, contact your plan administrator to get the specifics - not all plans are the same.

Can I check to make sure the coupon(s) or card can be used on my prescription?

Yes. Go to the website, use “browse drugs” to check the savings offered on your particular prescription medication, and use the coupon or card to start saving immediately. Please note, savings may vary based on the drug, the pharmacy or the state where you reside.

Miscellaneous

Does the program work on pet medications?

Yes. You can you use the coupons and the card on pet meds, since many of the drugs prescribed for pets are the same meds that we are prescribed – just in smaller doses.

How do I dispose of unused medications safely?

Medicines should never be flushed or thrown down the drain unless they are on the FDA list of medicines recommended for disposal in this way. Many medicines now come with disposal instructions on their labeling—consult your packaging. There are also a growing number of community-based “take-back” programs that offer safe disposal alternatives. Guidelines for drug disposal are also available at: http://www.fda.gov.
