The price of prescription drugs is just like the price of good ol’ gasoline: expect fluctuations by the day, sometimes even by the hour! When there’s so much change (and rumors of change) within the insurance and prescriptions world, it’s a bit of a chore to keep up, isn’t it?
As fellow red-blooded Americans, we are all for the wholesome do-it-yourself grit that has been the American ideal since circa 1776. But there’s one thing we really hope you don’t have to do on your own--and that’s negotiate your own prescription prices. So here’s your handy guide to the world of prescription assistance.
Let’s look at paid and unpaid prescription discount cards. By the end, we expect you to be whistling the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ with some new-found gratitude and a few more Abraham Lincolns in your pocket!
Free Discount Cards
In the Wild West of Insurance-Over-The-Internet, you wouldn’t be wrong to scrunch your eyebrow at anything that claims to be ‘free.’ Rest assured, we’ve procured the hidden gems of the obligation-free in the arena of insurance quotes and prescription discount cards.
Take, for example, Wellcard. If you’ve been prescribed any drug in pill/tablet form, and you happen to live in any of the fifty states of the U.S.A., then this card can provide you discounts ranging from 10-50% off retail price. This card automatically covers all family members living at the same address (irregardless of age). Free to sign up, free to use. Just note that the drug discounts are only available for pill/tablet prescriptions--yet in addition to pill discounts, Wellcard can also be used for the following:

What’s a co-pay prescription card? Basically if your Rx is a preferred brand or generic alternative on the card’s formulary, you pay a predetermined fee for the exact Rx prescribed by your doctor.
With co-pay cards, our customers have saved anywhere between 10-80% off both their generic and brand-name prescriptions, including diabetes supplies, pills, tablets, and injections.
Thankfully, we do all the number-crunching for you. When you inquire for one of our free, no-obligation quotes, we work with your budget, needs, and prescriptions to find the best combination of discounts for you. We won’t suggest anything that isn’t saving you time and money. Whether that comes in the form of a free or paid discount card, what we provide is what’s best for you.
Bonus: The Canadian Solution
We wouldn’t want to end this article without mentioning our northern neighbor! We know the topic of this article is the world of American prescription drugs, but in the recent past there’s been a great development in the world of prescription prices and we have only Canada to thank.
Did you know that Canada can sell you the same brand-name prescriptions you currently have for a fraction of the cost you currently pay? And no, that’s not in Canadian dollars!
Want to find out more? We’ve got your covered right here. And here’s another bonus: we’ll even throw in an extra, ICA-exclusive coupon. Just type in ICA5 during check-out and that’s an Abraham Lincoln we guarantee remains in your pocket. ‘Cause we love ya.
And what better note to end on than that?
