ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
BlueStar SeniorTech announced today a plan to offer their clients and potential client's access to prescription medications that would provide huge rate reductions. The savings are made possible by a prescription card program, which will be offered to ALL Seniors at no cost.
Last year, people in the U.S. spent more than $57 Billion on medication expenditures. The average cost of prescriptions for seniors in 2017 topped $5,800 for chronic issues compared to $1,800 just a decade ago. The constant rise in medication costs is alarming and BlueStar is taking a stand to help our Seniors with those costs.
The prescription card BlueStar is offering will take some of the cost burdens away from the Senior by discounting the medications 50-87%. The difference between rising health care costs and income discourages Seniors from seeking out the proper treatments and taking the right medications at the right dose.
"We are committed to keeping our Seniors Safe, Healthy, and Connected," said Robert Wray, CEO of BlueStar SeniorTech. "We realize that many Seniors are on a fixed income. Taking more and more money from them is not in anyone's best interest. We just want to do our part to put more money back into our aging population's pockets."
Founded in 2013, BlueStar SeniorTech's mission is to help American seniors age in the comfort of their homes: safe, healthy, and connected. The company offers a combination of aging-at-home technologies and services to thousands of customers in all 50 states. BlueStar is veteran-owned, and it is certified by the Veterans Administration as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). BlueStar is committed to serving the families of senior veterans and donates to veteran causes through a dedicated 501(c)3 charitable foundation.
