The Last Step to Completing Open Enrollment: The USA Medical Card

With Affordable Care Act open enrollment well underway, USA Medical Card provides a solution to fill gaps in prescription coverage.

Close to 60 percent of adults in the U.S. are taking prescription drugs; however, 91 percent of the most popular plans under the Affordable Care Act, the bronze-level ones, have an average annual deductible of nearly $6,000 to meet before prescriptions are paid for. Silver, gold, and platinum-plans also have limitations on drug benefits. USA Medical Card, a leading distributor of free pharmacy discount cards, offers their card as a complement to any plan under the ACA to help fill gaps in coverage.

In a statement on December 2nd, 2015 Jordan Sessler, co-founder and President of USA Medical Card, explained how using the company’s free pharmacy discount card could help serve as a counterpart to high-deductible or limited plans…

“Some people may never meet their deductible and be faced with the difficulty of affording their high-cost out-of-pocket medications. Under the new health care system, it is important for consumers to know what resources are available to supplement these plans as well as those provided by employers. The free USA Medical Card provides an easy way for people without adequate prescription coverage to save up to 75% off their medications—brand name or generic. Oftentimes, the discounted price is lower than the copay.”

The card is available to everyone and accepted at more than 60,000 pharmacies across the country—local, regional and national chains such as CVS, Costco, Target, Rite Aid, Walmart and Walgreens. Locating participating pharmacies is easily done with the pharmacy locator, Eligible Rx medications include those frequently 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 popular medications.
