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.

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.

Any physicians who are interested in ordering free cards for their clinic/hospital can email Brandon Knox, Program Development Director, at bknox@floridarxcard.com.

It's no secret that wise food choices, exercise and regular medical checkups are the formula to healthy life but for many it also includes taking medication. Financially it may be difficult to cover the cost for your prescription. There are convenience store and grocery store discount cards as well as flexible spending cards, but here is a card that may keep you from having to carry every one of those cards everyday.

Florida Rx Card is a free discount card for Florida residents. All residents are eligible to get pharmacy discounts through this program. The program can be used to supplement most health insurance plans including Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and High Deductible Plans.

“The 2014 Pharmacy News Today "MAN OF THE YEAR" is Ryan Jumonville, Chairman of United Networks of America”

[Expand/Collapse]

During his tenure as CEO of United Networks of America, Jumonville built United Networks of America (UNA) into the largest affinity and health networking companies in the country. In 2012, Jumonville stepped down as CEO and transitioned into the position of Chairman. The move was strategic as he planned to dedicate more of his time to his family, philanthropy, and strategic acquisitions. The move turned out to be a big success on all fronts.

Ryan

Jumonville has led UNA to four significant acquisitions during his short tenure as Chairman. Most of the acquisitions have been in the Rx division of UNA which is known as UNA Rx Card. This has helped solidify them as the national market leader in that business segment. UNA Rx Card is responsible for most of the innovative changes in the prescription cash card industry. They are considered a pharmacy friendly plan and have always made client value a priority. These are rare attributes in the Prescription Benefit Management (PBM) community where revenues almost always win over values.

In addition to his new role as Chairman, Jumonville committed more of his time to philanthropic causes. He donated one million meals to the Food Bank, built houses for single mothers, built fresh water wells in Africa, donated scholarships to children of deceased U.S. military service members, supported children's healthcare, and much more. The American Cancer Society, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Warrick Dunn Foundation and Desire Street Ministries have each recognized him with awards for his generosity and support. In all, he contributed and provided support to dozens of charities and aid organizations.

Despite having a busy schedule Jumonville prefers to be known as a consummate family man. His greatest joy is to spend time with his two children, Jayden and Gavin. He makes the time to drop them off at school each morning. He is expecting his third child in October of this year.

As an industry leader, Jumonville is admired for having found the prescription for success both professionally and personally.


“Warrick Dunn Family Foundation Rewards Three Single-Parent Families in Honor of Labor Day”

[Expand/Collapse]

(Dade City, FL) – The Warrick Dunn Family Foundation (WD-FF), a public charity serving single-parent families in Atlanta, Ga., Baton Rouge, La., Tallahassee and Tampa, Fla., rewarded three single mothers and their eight children for achieving financial independence by becoming first-time homebuyers through its Homes for the Holidays (HFTH) program on Tuesday morning.

In honor of the recent Labor Day holiday, the three homes were completely furnished with linens, bedding, fully stocked kitchens and home decor, made possible by a $75,000 donation from Dunn's former teammate, Ryan Jumonville and his company, United Networks of America. Included in Jumonville's donation, a $5,000 down payment was provided to each homebuyer through a grant made to Habitat for Humanity of East and Central Pasco, the homebuilder and lender for all three homes. In addition, Toshiba Business Solutions sponsored the family's home offices.

Linda Hambrick and her three children were thrilled to find Warrick Dunn in the front yard of their new home. The Hambrick family soon realized that their home, rehabbed by Habitat for Humanity of East and Central Pasco, was completely furnished with furniture from Aaron's Inc. (NSE: AAN), the program's corporate partner. In addition, Jumonville's donation assisted with $10,000 in complete home furnishings and $5,000 down payment assistance, drastically lowering Hambrick's monthly mortgage payments.

In tears, Hambrick, said, "My kids don't have to say that we have to pack again and they will have their own rooms."

Immediately following the Hambrick family's home presentation, Dunn and supporters traveled around the corner to reward Ramona Atkins and her two children who also became HFTH recipients Tuesday morning. Atkins and her children have been living in a small, two-bedroom apartment in need of repairs, where the two children shared a bedroom with twin beds and barely enough space to walk. Hambrick was speechless when she saw Dunn standing at the end of her driveway.

Once inside the home, her son, Christopher, could not contain himself when he opened the door to his new amphibian themed room, exclaiming, "I don't just like it, I love it!"

Warrick Dunn, former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, started the HFTH program in 1997 to honor his late mother's dream of homeownership. Betty Smothers, a Baton Rouge police officer, was killed while working an after-hours security shift when Dunn was an 18-year-old high school senior.

"Changing lives has been a passion of mine since I lost my mom. These three mothers have worked hard to provide a secure home for their families and they deserve to be rewarded and set up for success as a homeowner," said Dunn about the HFTH program.

As the Atkins family's home presentation came to an end, Dunn walked next door to reward a single mother of two. Soporro Burns and her two children have been homeless while their Habitat home was being built. Burns, who is self-employed, has proven herself determined to give her children a safe and stable home environment, completing over 400 sweat equity hours as a family.

"We are confident that these families will continue to succeed and we are happy to support them in their endeavors," said Neal Weldon, Regional Manager for Aaron's Inc.

To date, WD-FF and its sponsors have rewarded 107 single parents and 286 children in Atlanta, Ga., Baton Rouge, La., and Tallahassee and Tampa, Fla. for achieving the American Dream of purchasing their first home.
