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.

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.

How to Get Prescription Discounts

Do You Believe the CBO? An Analysis of Repeal or Replace

It’s a hectic time for anyone trying to predict what will happen to their family’s healthcare costs. Every conceivable think tank, group, association and committee seems to have an opinion, and many ScriptSave WellRx members are wondering (and worrying) about who to believe.

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.”
