I have recently received an Rx discount card in the mail like I'm sure many of you have. Many times when things sound to good to be true .... they are but not wanting to just assume it is I decided to do some research online. There used to be a post in this section that was started in 2006. Every once in a while someone would add to it and it did have some interesting things on it but it recently was locked due to the age of it's beginning. There were many questions about
these RX cards. Understandably some said the cards were helpful depending on which meds they were used for and others said they were useless.
This is what I have found out. You must always be careful of scams. Always research the company. Most of the cards can be helpful for the uninsured depending on the pharmacy and the medication.
The Rx card company makes money in many different ways. One .. they get a better price from the pharmaceutical industry. Two .. the pharmacy that you use also pays them due to their thinking you will buy other products while your there. Three .. even though they have legal writings in small print that says they will not share your info there is almost always loops holes that they can use to do just that. These are just three examples.
Bottom line is always be careful and always know that usually good comes with bad just hopefully more good than bad.
