Through National Benefit Builders Inc.’s (NBBI) free Community Assistance Program (CAP), U.S. prescription drug users have saved more than $225 million since 2009 on prescription drugs. Representatives from all over the country held their first conference last October to focus on educating consumers on how to take advantage of significant savings on their prescription medications. Since that conference, the number of Community Assistance Program users has risen by 20%. National Benefit Builders Inc. is hosting their second annual conference to allow representatives from across the U.S. to collaborate and strategize on how to distribute the free prescription discount cards to the people who need them most and educate them on how to use the cards to maximize savings.

The four day event will be held October 18 – 21, 2012 in Savannah, Georgia. The event will focus on the topics of “overcoming the disbelief the discount card is too good to be true” and “how to distribute and reach consumers whose primary language is not English.” The goal is to make prescription medication affordable for all Americans. Through the use of the CAP Program, NBBI hopes to reach more than $300 million in consumer savings before the end of the year. The program is designed to assist uninsured and underinsured Americans who need prescription medication to maintain health, but often have to go without or choose between food and medication because they can’t afford both.
“The conference is an important aspect to our extensive training program and also has an important impact on the success of the CAP Program,” said NBBI’s President Kevin Faherty. “Representatives will get the chance to work together and share ideas on how to get the discount card to the people that need it most. These efforts result in large numbers of people saving significant amounts of money on their prescription medications.”
