MedSave Discount Pharmacy a unique “non-insurance based pharmacy” officially announced that they will be teaming up with Consumers for Health Care Choices to roll out a national prescription plan for the uninsured. MedSave has been very successful in setting up statewide prescription plans for large senior organizations in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Indiana. Sean Kacsir, founder of MedSave Discount Pharmacy states,” we have cut monthly prescription bills in half for thousands of our customers and have saved many of our customers up to 80% on their generic medication costs in the past two years”. MedSave has teamed up with Consumers for Health Care Choices, a growing national consumer organization to help get the word out to the 45 million uninsured Americans that either do not have insurance or have signed up with the growing Heath Savings Account “H.S.A. market.
MedSave Discount Pharmacy is a “cash pharmacy” or non-insurance pharmacy created in February, 2004 to help people with limited insurance or no insurance save money on prescriptions. The new prescription program is a simple plan that will offer Consumers for Health Care Choices members an additional 5% off the already discounted retail price. MedSave will also offer $1.00 shipping per package and include Consumers for Health Care Choices members to be included on the “full bottle” brand discount. This full bottle discount offers brand medications at a price well below the average retail price in the market.
Fred Wesely, chief pharmacist in New Hope, MN, works with doctors on a daily basis finding different ways to help save his customers money. “In our pharmacy you do not need insurance to be able to afford prescriptions. Many of the brand medications either has a generic medication available or has similar drugs that are much more affordable, that get similar results at a fraction of the cost. There has been numerous times where one phone call to the patient’s doctor has saved our patient $100.00 per month.” One example given was changing from the popular cholesterol drug Lipitor to Mevacor, which has a generic equivalent called Lovastatin. This change could reduce your monthly bill from $120.00 to $14.99 per month in our store. If you can’t afford the medication, you put your health in jeopardy. We help people afford to take their medication.
