Dear OH members,
ObesityHelp is happy to announce our new ObesityHelp Drug Discount Card. In coordination with NeedyMeds, ObesityHelp is offering this card to our members at no charge.
This ObesityHelp Drug Discount Card offers you another way to save on various prescription costs. You can save up to 80% off the price of certain prescription medications. Members can use the card if not covered by insurance or by members that decide not to use their insurance. For instance, if a prescription medication is not covered under your insurance plan, the co-payment or deductible is high, if the maximum benefit has been exceeded, or if they are in the donut hole, members can utilize this card. The drug discount card is not an insurance plan, but provides patients with discounted rates on prescriptions. When this card is presented with a valid prescription to a pharmacist, a 0-80% discount may be provided. However, you may ask the pharmacist to process the discount card through the pharmacy system, as well as your insurance card, then choose whichever offers the best savings. The discount card often provides better discounts than many insurance plans.
The ObesityHelp Drug Discount Card is accepted at over 61,000 participating pharmacies (within the U.S. and territories) and includes large chains stores such as Walgreens, CVS and Wal-Mart, Rite-Aid and other regional chains and local stores. Additionally, the ObesityHelp Drug Discount Card can be used for over-the-counter medications and medical supplies if they are written on a prescription along with pet prescription medications purchased at a pharmacy. Your card can be shared with friends and family members, and you are invited to print a card for their use too. The card is active now and has no expiration date. When the ObesityHelp Drug DiscountCard is used, OH will receive a minimal amount to assist us as we make the journey with our members to fight obesity. If your pharmacist is not familiar with the drugdiscount card, they can call Argus Health Systems at 866-921-7284. The phone number is found on back of the card.
What If I Have Insurance?
Anyone can use the ObesityHelp Drug Discount Card card but it cannot be combined with insurance. You can use it instead of insurance if:
- The insurance has no drug coverage
- There is a high drug deductible
- There is a low medicine cap that has been met
- There is a high copay and the card offers a better price
- You are in the Medicare Part D donut hole
The card cannot be used to lower a co-payment.
A Few Things You Should Know
