Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Healthcare continues to be a hot debate and seems to be the topic of conversation everywhere – from the classroom to the dinner table. Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that over 45 million Americans were without health insurance in 2012. Another 10 million people were without insurance for at least part of that year. These are staggering statistics for a developed country. While many people feel helpless to do anything about this appalling lack of access to healthcare, AffordRx is helping patients by offering Lantus discount cards, as well as discounts for many other popular medications. Discounts of up to 75% make medication more accessible for countless patients who could not otherwise afford it.
Sadly, nearly one-third of those living without health insurance are children. This often means that they are missing out on preventative care like yearly physicals and routine blood work that can identify problems before they become major health risks.
In the United States, over 200,000 children are dealing with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, with an additional three to four thousand new diagnoses predicted each year. The families of these children can benefit greatly from reduced prices on insulin and other medicines used to manage and control diabetes. A Lantus coupon bring significant savings to families who might not otherwise be able to afford their medications.
At AffordRx.com, patients can print free Lantus discount cards on their home computer. These cards can be used at thousands of participating pharmacies across the United States, including large chains like Wal-Mart, Target, and Walgreens. Patients can also request their free card to be sent via postal mail. Cards can be used immediately, and there is no limit on number of uses. AffordRx cards may be used by patients who lack health insurance or whose medications are not covered by their existing insurance. Saving patients money is what AffordRx does best.
