BIRMINGHAM, Ala. The Alabama Rx Card Program will now provide “free” discount prescription drug cards to the residents of Alabama, according to reports.
The card can be used at more than 50,000 pharmacies across the country to receive savings of up to 75 percent (savings average around 30 percent).
Participating pharmacies include: Bruno’s, Food World, Food Max, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Winn-Dixie, Kmart, Publix and thousands of independent pharmacies.
Although the Alabama Rx Card is designed to help the uninsured and underinsured people of Alabama afford their prescription medications, residents who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits can also use the card.
Additionally, people who have prescription coverage can use this program for drugs not covered by their insurance. This program even covers some pet medications (those available at the participating pharmacies).
UNA Rx Card powers the Alabama Rx Card Program, which is a division of United Networks of America. Programs have also been launched in 14 other states, including New York, Texas and the Carolinas. UNA Rx Card is considered the fastest growing discount prescription card company in the United States, reported Birmingham’s Dothan Eagle.
