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’s business and consumer model can address this need head on. It’s a win-win situation for both the member and SCD
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 5, 2006
SmartChoiceDrugStore’s (SCD) new wholesale pricing model is capturing the attention of business owners nationwide who are struggling to meet the needs of their employee’s health care requirements. Business owners are finding the new wholesale program’s business plan a welcome relief from the skyrocketing costs of health benefits, most notably prescription drugs.
SCD Wholesale Club’s membership plan for businesses is based on their consumer membership model, but at lower costs for the employer and their employees. In addition, there is one very significant difference; employee’s family members can enroll in the club for 75% less than the normal club membership. The business version of the club is available to all businesses in the United States.
The SCD Wholesale Club allows employers, who cannot afford health insurance coverage for their employees, the ability to still offer a prescription drug benefit that substantially reduces the employee’s prescription drug costs. Although the Club is not insurance, it does offer prescription drugs at wholesale prices that are not attainable through any other benefit program outside of health insurance coverage. In many instances, the medications are sold to club members at prices lower than some pharmacies actually pay for the drug.
SCD believed it was necessary to implement a new, wholesale pricing schedule for those business owners who cannot afford the astronomical costs of prescription drug coverage for their employees and is reflected in the low, annual Club membership costs. These costs are:
- Owner: $80 annually (free with 5 or more employees)
- Employee (each): $60 annually
- Family Members: $20 annually
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’s business and consumer model can address this need head on. It’s a win-win situation for both the member and SCD,” Clark says.
