NEW YORK--()--NewYorkCityDrugCard.com, a city-specific free discount prescription medication program, is encouraging all New York City caregivers, charitable organizations, churches, government agencies, and employers who do not provide health insurance to distribute discount medication cards to their patients in need of financial assistance with their prescription medications.
Caregivers should attend and instruct patients in need of prescription medication assistance to attend the Business Expo at Madison Square Garden on May 6, 2010 from 8:00 am - 2:00 pm. There is no cost to attend the Business Expo.
If the patient is unable to attend the event, the caregiver should contact NewYorkCityDrugCard.com via email to receive bulk supplies of coupon pads. There is no limit on the amount of coupons that can be distributed and the program is free to all.
The coupons can be used at chain pharmacies like Rite-Aid, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Wal-Mart, Albertsons and many more in addition to thousands of independent pharmacies.
There are 1,000,000 New York City patients with no prescription insurance and several million with limited prescription benefits. Beyond 2010, Medicaid, Medicare and private insurers will be cutting costs with additional prescription benefit reductions and restrictions. In recent years, the costs for pharmaceuticals rose more rapidly than any other type of medical cost and this trend will accelerate in then term as pharmaceuticals gear for cost associated with passage of healthcare reforms. Medications play an important role in controlling future health care costs; they can prevent or replace the need for expensive emergency visits, hospitalizations, surgeries, treatments or procedures.
The NewYorkDrugCard program offers a way for patients to save on prescription medications and consequently maintain their health. The discount medication cards do not take the place of health insurance, but they offer savings on medications. While discounts vary last month patients saved an average of 54% on medications purchases.
