Prescription Savings Club for the Uninsured by Walgreens #rxSavingsClub

Walgreens Prescription Savings Club

Ever since leaving the corporate world in January of this year our family has been among the many uninsured.  Unfortunately we carry no health insurance and no prescription coverage.  According to CNN it is estimated that in 2011 over 50 million people in the US were uninsured and as I type out this post that figure almost paralyzes my thoughts. As one of those millions of people I try to take advantage of everything companies offer as far as saving on medical services and prescriptions.  Why?  Because our family spends over $400 a month on preventative medications or $4,800 a year for our family of four.

Although we have been getting our prescriptions filled at Walgreens for years up until recently I never realized they offered a Prescription Savings Club (PSC).  The PSC touts an annual average savings of $170 for customers who belong to the plan.  The cost?  Twenty dollars for an individual or $35 for a family membership.  If you are anything like me that savings seems significant, but I had to visit my local Walgreens and talk to the pharmacist to find out if it really would be a benefit for my family.  The benefits she told me about for PSC members were enough to make the cost worth it, but when we broke down what my savings on our monthly prescriptions would be I signed up on the spot.

Prescription Savings Club (PSC) member benefits:

  • Discounts on all generic medications and thousands of brand-name drugs
  • Five – 20% discount off all immunizations
  • 10% bonus savings on Walgreens Brand, W Brand, and Nice! products, as well as in-store photofinishing services
  • Comprehensive benefits for diabetics
  • Valuable discounts on lifestyle drugs not usually covered by other plans including PET MEDICATIONS

Signing up for the PSC was quick and simple.  The pharmacist asked my name, date of birth, email address, mailing address and the names and date of birth of my family members.  I had to agree to a few terms related to the membership, pay my $35, and that was it.  There is also an option to sign up online and regardless of where you sign up it will automatically tie to your online account you already have with Walgreens.

  1. I love this program. I have insurance but I still save a ton of money using it.

  2. This is really a great deals specially for those people who protects their body from any harm, for example illness, diseases, taking medical supplements are really good.

    Sounds like a good idea especially for young families and pet owners.

  4. I think it is a great alternative to insurance. Viewing the amount of investment required in a health insurance plan, PSC is a great option. Not just it offers convenience of joining but also the amount involved is very reasonable.

  5. That sounds really nice, I haven’t heard about this kind of service before. I think I’m going to do some research to find out if there was something similar here in Europe. It would be really helpful.

  6. It’s definitely worth signing up to save up to $170 a year! I hoep you get to save a lot!

  7. Great post! i know that a lot of people will benefit from this program and i hope that many could read about this. Thanks for sharing the good news and i’m looking forward to read more from you!

  8. Thanks for sharing this one. These are great deals. It is very important that a family must be insured. It is necessary that we have health insurance and these deals are so good to get.
