(PRWEB) December 24, 2012
It’s no secret that prescription drug costs are growing. At the same time, millions of Americans do not have medical insurance, and millions more are underinsured. In addition, seniors face excluded drugs with Medicare. All this adds up to financial strains for many who need help.
To help combat these factors, Always Best Care Senior Services last year launched its Free ABC Rx Discount Prescription Card program. The Free ABC Card is not insurance, but a substantial discount program that can save those with no coverage or restricted coverage up to 65% on prescriptions at over 56,000 pharmacies nationwide.
Through the third quarter of 2012, a total of 4,509 prescriptions were written using the Free ABC Rx discount prescription cards, and users have saved $237,695 using the cards!
Based in Roseville, CA just outside the state capitol in Sacramento, Always Best Care is one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in home care, assisted living placement services and skilled home health care. The company delivers its services through an international network of more than 200 independently owned and operated franchises and area representative offices.
The average retail prescription cost of prescriptions written using the Free ABC Rx card in 2012 was $57.11, and users paid an average of only $20.99 – resulting in average savings of $36.12, or 63.2 percent!
This clearly demonstrates the added value Always Best Care brings to franchisees and clients throughout the United States.
Perhaps best of all, the Free ABC Rx program is indeed completely free, no personal information is ever asked for or collected, and there is no activation process or waiting period for coverage.
