More Floridians Have Access to Prescription Savings
The Centers for Disease Control reports that Americans spend more on prescription drugs than people in any other country: some $45 billion in out-of-pocket dollars in the last year alone. With that in mind, the Florida Rx Card is reminding physicians that their patients who aren't insured or who take prescription drugs that aren't covered by their health insurance plans, can use the Florida Rx Card to obtain discounts of up to 80 percent off the retail price for brand and generic FDA-approved medications.
Florida Medical Association has been working closely with Florida Rx Card to distribute free discount prescription cards to all Floridians. The goal of the partnership is to provide additional card distribution channels and create awareness so that all residents will have access to this free statewide prescription assistance program. Florida Rx Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents afford their prescription medications. The program can also be used by people that have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans.
"Florida Rx Card is an important and valuable program for the residents of our state."
Dr. Ronald F. Giffler, M.D., J.D.
Florida Medical Association Treasurer
Another unique component of the program is their preferred pharmacy option. Florida Rx Card has chosen CVS/pharmacy as their preferred pharmacy so that residents who don't have access to a computer and can't obtain a hard card, can visit any CVS/pharmacy to have their prescriptions processed through Florida Rx Card. Residents can simply reference "Florida Rx Card" to have their prescription processed through the program. Florida Rx Card is accepted at over 56,000 participating regional and national pharmacies.
"We strongly believe that this is an easy and innovative way to help the residents of Florida find affordable prescription options," states Program Development Director, Brandon Knox.
Florida Rx Card has helped residents save over $63 million since its inception in August 2007. You can help by encouraging your patients to print a free card at www.FloridaRxCard.com or www.flmedical.org. Florida Rx Card is also available as an app for iPhone and Android. You can search "Free Rx iCard" in the app store.
