Rx Pharmacy Discount Savings Card Doctors, Social Services, Charities


Published on

The Community Assistance Program offers free Rx discount cards and can save those who are without prescription an average of 55% on generic medications and 10-15% on brand name drugs.

The Cap program has reached out to over 375 million people who have to pay full price for their prescription medications. These cards are free to use and can benefit people who are struggling to pay for their prescription medications. The Cap card is meant for people who are uninsured or underinsured and can be used at any major pharmacy.

“Regional Outreach Coordinator Michael Hargrove says, sometimes we forget how lucky we are to have insurance which allows us to have full health insurance coverage with low prescription copays. I received regular phone calls from people who are begging for help. Sometimes this is very hard to hear their stories in which they are not taking their heart medications, blood pressure medications because of the cost. I will look up their discount prices and research the cheapest pharmacy discount price. At the end of the day, I feel much better because these people have thanked me so much for helping them.

Michael says, He would like to thank the doctor offices, hospitals, social services and other assistance program who take the time to hand out these discount cards in their offices.
If you know anyone who needs assitance then please have in your heart and make a difference by telling them about these cards.
Trust me, you will feel better about yourself at the end of the day when the person who used the card comes back to you with a smile and thanks you for thinking of them.
