What Are Drug Coupons, Why Do They Exist and How Do They Work?

What’s the catch behind the drug copay card? And, yes, there is a catch. To answer this question, let’s look at why these programs were created.

Can You Get Pneumonia from The Pneumonia Vaccine?

With all of the news coverage about vaccines, it is important to equip yourself with the knowledge on what vaccines are, how they work, and why they don’t cause disease to make an informed decision on your health.

Patient Education: Fighting Fake News

When it comes to health information on the internet, many patients are no longer sure what to believe. As important, patients often don’t know how to apply what they have read. As a healthcare provider, you have the opportunity to help patients navigate through the vast variety of  online health information.

Cholesterol Drug Price Competition

In such a competitive cholesterol treatment market, manufacturers have been forced to make drastic cuts to their medication costs. Amgen lowered its product by 60%, followed by a 45-70% reduction from Regeneron. The price reductions occurred in response to the national consumer’s options to trial a multitude of more affordable options for cholesterol management, based on their clinical goals.

formulary-changes

What Medications Will Your Insurance Be Dropping?

The formulary is a list of approved medications for which an insurer has agreed to help cover the cost. However, there might be multiple manufacturers of numerous drugs designed to treat the same condition. This is an opportunity for the insurance company to trim costs by only agreeing to cover one drug for each health condition.

pharmacy-gag-clause

Outlawing Pharmacy Gag Clauses

After the much anticipated release of the 2016 Gallup poll, which had Americans assign a rating of honesty and ethical standards in professions, Pharmacists found themselves in a top-three ranking for the 14th straight year.1 In last year’s poll however, it seems the general public’s opinion of pharmacists had shifted slightly. With increased news coverage and scrutiny over rising drug prices, it seemed harder for patients to be able to separate the practices of big pharmaceutical companies with the copay price that the pharmacists were asking for at the drug counter.

Rx Savings Too Good to be True?

For most Americans, chances are good you’re spending too much on your prescription medications. The increasing cost is staggering. And with so many companies offering discounts on prescriptions, it can sound like a scam. As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

insulin-costs

Rising Cost of Insulin? Here’s What You Can Do

Insulin plays an important role in managing patients with Diabetes Mellitus (DM). Patients with Type 1 DM have limited ability to produce endogenous insulin due to their pancreas’s inability to properly function. Patients with Type 2 DM can also have increased dependence on insulin therapy use as their disease state progresses.

Priced Out of Prescriptions

Millions of Americans with health insurance still pay out-of-pocket for medications. And the cost can reach hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year. But what many drugmakers and pharmacies don’t want you to know is that you could lower your medication costs, sometimes by as much as ten-times, by simply walking across the street to a competing pharmacy.

Prescription Price Matters

If you’ve ever used a prescription price-check tool for an Rx savings program (like ScriptSave WellRx), only to have been told a different price when the time came to collect & pay for the prescription at the pharmacy, then the next few paragraphs are for you.

Benefits of Shopping for Prescription Medication

Pharmacy prices can differ from store to store and should be treated like buying a car. Most people think of just going to the pharmacy closest to them instead of looking around for their medication. When in reality, it can differ by sometimes a significant amount.

Unlock Secret Savings on Prescription Medications

It’s a growing strain on our bottom line:  more Americans taking ever more prescribed medications and spending more of their income to do it. The toll is evident, as one in 10 of us can’t afford our medications and are simply going without.

non-adherence

Is Non-adherence a Non-option?

It’s a simple fact: drugs don’t work in patients who don’t take them. The causes of non-adherence, when a patient either accidentally or knowingly does not take medications as prescribed, can be complex. Often it’s because patients can’t afford their medications.
Countless studies and surveys show a close relationship between high out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs and the rate of prescription abandonment, or non-adherence.

pill-splitting

Pill Splitting? Do it Safely

Pill splitting refers to breaking a pill down to obtain a smaller amount of the whole pill. Your doctor can write a prescription that is usually double the dosage of what you should take in one day. You can then cut the pill in half, making the smaller dose that should actually be taken.

Honesty 1.01 | Always Ask, “What’s the Cash Price?”

Always ask, “What’s the Ca$h Price?”
Always show your ScriptSave WellRx card
The ScriptSave® WellRx Facebook page sees a lot of interaction…and we love getting questions. By far the most common questions and comments are those related to insurance.
“Can I use ScriptSave WellRx with my insurance?”
“How does it work if it’s not insurance?”
“I have insurance, so your card isn’t for me.”
For the record, not only is that last one a misconception, it’s also a fast-track to over-paying for your meds (and it’s the starting point for this blog post).
