This is why we founded Prescription Hope over a decade ago: to provide people from all walks of life access to the medications they need at a price they can afford.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 15, 2016
On the news that CVS/Caremark and Express Scripts will once again be reducing the number of prescription medications available in their formulary, Prescription Hope, the nation’s fastest growing pharmacy program, is extending an invitation to those affected to receive their medications for a fixed monthly cost through their program.
“It is disappointing that, at a time when more Americans are reaching out for a higher standard of healthcare, more barriers are being put in their way,” said Douglas K. Pierce, President and Chief Executive Officer of Prescription Hope. “This is why we founded Prescription Hope over a decade ago: to provide people from all walks of life access to the medications they need at a price they can afford.”
For the second consecutive year, both Caremark and Express Scripts, the two largest pharmacy benefit companies covering over 200 million Americans combined, are reducing prescription medications from their formulary. In 2017, over 150 prescription medications will drop from the covered medications lists, potentially forcing those dependent on the medications to pay out of pocket for their medicine. Dropped medications include Crestor, Effexor XR, Nexium, Orencia and Toujeo.
“With so many popular medications dropping, individuals and families may have questions about how they will afford their prescription medications,” Pierce said. “Through Prescription Hope, those who are prescribed medications can obtain the top 100 prescribed name-brand medications, all available through our formulary.”
As an alternative to traditional pharmacy fulfillment programs, which are constantly subject to change, Prescription Hope can obtain all of the prescription medications dropped by Caremark and Express Scripts for the set price of $35 per month, per medication. To do this, they work daily with America’s top pharmaceutical companies to order, manage, track and refill medications on behalf of individuals across the country.
In addition, while Caremark and Express Scripts are reducing their formularies, the Prescription Hope available medication list continues to grow. Since their founding over 10 years ago, Prescription Hope has added over 1,500 FDA-approved prescription medications to their list, with new medications being added on a daily basis.
There are no other costs, fees, or charges associated with the medication or through Prescription Hope, and many Americans already qualify to receive their medications through the program. Households earning less than $100,000 per year often qualify to receive their medications through Prescription Hope. Moreover, because they are not an insurance product or discount drug card, Prescription Hope works in concert with employer benefit packages, ACA insurance plans purchased on the Healthcare Exchange, and self-insured groups.
As a value-added partner, Prescription Hope works seamlessly to cut down the cost of high priced medications, and passing the value directly to American families. Because they are changing the prescription medication paradigm, their team is trusted by the biggest medical systems in the country, including the Cleveland Clinic and Henry Ford Health Systems.
Prescription Hope is inviting all individuals who have questions about their changing insurance benefits to begin receiving their prescription medications for the set price of $35 per month, per medication, starting in 2017.
