LOS ANGELES, CA – The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce announced today a new Los Angeles Rx Card savings program available to all Los Angeles County residents that will provide savings of up to 75 percent on prescriptions and is accepted at more than 50,000 pharmacies across the country, including Safeway, Walmart and CVS.
The Rx Card program will provide Angelenos with access to free discount prescription drug cards that have no restrictions to membership and any income or age limitations. The program was launched to help uninsured and underinsured residents afford their prescription medications.
“Healthcare is in the news every day … this new Rx card will not reform healthcare, but it will save money, and that is important to each and every consumer,” said Gary Toebben, President & CEO, Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. “Every step that saves money contributes to a healthier population of Angelenos.”
The Rx Card program can also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Additionally, people who have prescription coverage can use this program for non-formulary or non-covered drugs.
The Rx Card is a solution to the confusing maze of discount prescription programs that have appeared in recent years. Many of these programs only cover certain drugs, charge fees, and some have membership restrictions such as age and income requirements.
