Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

November 1st starts Open Enrollment, and USA Medical reminds marketplace participants that the period has been shortened dramatically—it only runs from November 1December 15, 2017. To help people afford the medications that won't be covered by their plan, the company developed customized prescription savings programs in all 50 states including: Texas Prescription Assistance Program, Florida Prescription Assistance Program and California Prescription Assistance Program.

USA Medical also provides these tips to help determine what prescription coverage plan is the right one:

  • Put together a list of prescriptions taken regularly to estimate annual costs and help shop for the best health insurance plan.

  • Make sure the plan selected covers those medications prescribed on a continual basis.

  • Don't assume a low-cost plan will save money. Sometimes lower tier plans have a limited list of prescriptions covered and higher copays, which can result in high out-of-pocket expenses that add up quickly.

Co-Founder and President of USA Medical, Jordan Sessler says, "If you face high out-of-pocket costs for your medications because you have a high deductible or your plan doesn't cover your medications, our free Pharmacy Discount Card can help. It provides an easy way for you to save up to 75% off your medications—brand name or generic. Oftentimes, the discounted price is lower than your copay."

The pre-activated Pharmacy Discount Cards are accepted at more than 60,000 U.S. pharmacies — local, regional and national chains such as CVS, Walmart and Walgreens. Most popular medicines are eligible for savings, including those prescribed for psoriasis, heart disease, hypothyroidism, asthma, diabetes and other health conditions. The card is commonly used on Zolpidem, Amoxicillin, Lisinopril, Metformin, and thousands of other common medications.
