How do free prescription discount cards work?
How do free prescription discount cards work? When people join together to purchase in large quantities, everyone saves! Discount Drug Network, provider of the Prescription Discount Card, covers millions of people and leverages the power of group purchasing to negotiate these discounts on behalf of our members. Just call or go online for help looking up drug pricing at your local pharmacy. The pricing tool on our website is incredibly easy to use and helps you price compare the prescription you need at all local participating pharmacies.
Who pays for this?
The pharmacies! The pharmacies agree to let our members get discount pricing (just like they do already for insurance customers) because they want our business! They not only give our members fantastic discounts, but they also pay us a small transaction fee each time we process a prescription through our network. This allows us to continue to operate, grow, and save our members money! For the first time, the individual consumer gets access to pricing typically reserved for the largest insurance companies.
Why do the pharmacies participate in this?
Simple! Because when you come to their store to fill a prescription you also typically buy personal care products and other miscellaneous items from their retail store. This is good business for them, good business for us, and big savings for you.
What drugs does it work for and
how much will I save?
Any FDA-approved medications are available within our pricing network, but the savings we have access to are not the same for every drug. We find that our pricing is typically much less expensive than the insurance company pricing for generic drugs. For brand name drugs, the savings are usually less. The good news is, our online drug pricing tool suggests any and all alternative generic drugs for your prescription (when available) and helps you shop for the best price from all the participating pharmacies in your area.
