LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ameritas Group, a division of Ameritas Life Insurance Corp., a UNIFI company, announces it is adding extra value to its dental, eye care and hearing care plans nationwide through an optional no-additional-cost prescription discount savings offer at Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies nationwide. Because this Walmart Prescription Savings Program is not insurance, it adds value without increasing premium costs.
“We're always looking for ways to offer additional value to our policyholders and plan members,” explains Karen Gustin, LLIF, senior vice president of group marketing, managed care and national accounts. “With health care expenditures at record levels, the Walmart Prescription Savings Program couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s alarming to think that anyone would have to forego or limit vital prescription medications because of cost.”
Through the Walmart Prescription Savings Program, Ameritas dental, eye care and hearing care cardholders can present their Ameritas ID card at any Walmart or Sam’s Club pharmacy in the nation, and let the savings begin. Both Ameritas and Walmart are customer-focused and thrive on being the first to offer innovative products and services that help people live happier, healthier lives. The Walmart Prescription Savings Program is administered for Walmart by the Macaluso Group.
According to the Macaluso Group, Ameritas cardholders can expect to obtain over 1,000 generic drug prescriptions at the everyday low price of $4, all other generics at an average savings of approximately 40% and most brand-name prescriptions at 10-15% savings.
