We are addressing the prescription drug needs of an enormous segment of the population that has been left to fend for themselves. The need for low cost medications has become critical in this nation and our belief is that the SCD Wholesale Club business and pricing model can address this need head on. It’s a win-win situation for both the customer and SCD
Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 26, 2006
SmartChoiceDrugStore (SCD) implements an unparalleled wholesale pricing model, which is completely new for the retail pharmacy industry. The new wholesale pricing model is offered through the SCD Wholesale Club and is priced substantially lower than any other discount, prescription drug program as a way to meet the demands of the underinsured, uninsured and businesses who continue to be devastated by the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs. No other United States based pharmacy offers the type of savings that are available through the wholesale prescription club. For more information please call 866-BUY-MEDS.
The retail pharmacy industry and pharmacy discount cards have yet to address the rising costs of prescription drugs and even Medicare Part D does not address all uninsured citizens. In addition, the Canadian pharmacy response to the high costs of prescription drugs cannot address drug costs once they are generic. Therefore, SCD believed it was necessary to implement a new, wholesale pricing schedule for those citizens who cannot afford the astronomical costs of prescription drugs from retail pharmacies.
SCD CEO, Chatrick Clark, says that SCD Wholesale Club’s pricing is substantially lower than any retail pharmacy has offered before. “We are addressing the prescription drug needs of an enormous segment of the population that has been left to fend for themselves. The need for low cost medications has become critical in this nation and our belief is that the SCD Wholesale Club business and pricing model can address this need head on. It’s a win-win situation for both the customer and SCD,” Clark says.
The SCD Wholesale Club also offers business owners the ability to offer prescription benefits to their employees that they could not usually afford either through insurance or supplemental health coverage. While SCD Wholesale club is not insurance, it does offer business owners a way of assisting their employees in obtaining an affordable way to meet their prescription drug needs. The Club makes it possible for employers to offer prescription benefits to their employees at costs that their employees cannot obtain independently. The Club extends this offer to the employee’s family as well. Costs for the Club via the business plan run $60 a year for one employee.
SCD also maintains a discount pharmacy through its web site http://www.smartchoicedrugstore.com. SCD’s web site does offer substantially discounted pricing when the Club is not the best fit for an individual. “This usually comes about when a customer is in the need of a single, non-recurring prescription like antibiotics and is not on a maintenance medication. In that case, our normal discount pricing is the best fit and is still far less in cost than visiting your local pharmacy,” Clark says.
Currently, club prices, information, and sign-up are done via toll free number at 866-289-6337. The SCD Wholesale Club will be available by mid-May on the SmartChoiceDrugstore web site.
