A Healthier Me in 2018
So it's a new year, and with it come the resolutions that we make and renew as we change out our calendars. For me personally, my focus is on the overall health and wellness of both myself and my family. This is a bit of a renewal of last year’s resolution for me. I focused heavily on losing weight and getting in shape during 2017, and I managed to make some pretty big strides. I lost and kept off a ton of weight. I made the going to the gym something more than a vague idea in my head. Overall, I am pretty happy with my 2017 results…but that doesn't mean they couldn't be better. We hope that you enjoy this A Healthier Me in 2018 with Script Save WellRx post.
And that is the focus of 2018. I want to continue the journey that I began last year. I want to be the healthiest me I can possibly be. Now one of the keys to success for my goal involves regular doctor visits. What is the point of eating right and working out if I'm not bothering to have myself checked for problems that I cannot see with my eyes? So I started 2018 with a checkup, and I learned that there were specific things that needed work. My blood pressure was a little high. Not bad, but not great. Same with cholesterol levels. Overall, my checkup showed that I have made great progress, but there was still work to do. So I left the doctor’s office with a few prescriptions in hand and the determination to really get to work on myself.
One hurdle that I had to overcome though was cost. As I filled my prescriptions for the first time, I was struck by the thought that I had added another bill to the monthly expenditures. I needed three scripts filled, and with my insurance that meant I would be spending $60 a month on medication (Our insurance copay is $20 per prescription). Now with a family of 5 every penny matters, so I couldn't help but wonder if there wasn't a way to save money on my medicine. Was $20 per script a good deal? I had no idea.
It was then that I tried ScriptSave® WellRx and learned that I was overpaying at the pharmacy. I could buy all three of my prescriptions for less than $15 using their service. That's a savings of better than $45 when compared to what I was paying with my insurance plan, and for my family that is significant. Apparently using my insurance isn't always the best deal, which was a bit of an eye opener.
What is ScriptSave WellRx
ScriptSave WellRx is a free program that can significantly impact the cost of prescription drugs. It is designed to reduce the pharmacy costs for people who are uninsured, under-insured, on high deductible plans, or on a plan with a higher prescription drug copay. ScriptSave WellRx has negotiated pricing with over 62,000 pharmacies across the country, and those negotiated prices can mean real savings. And best of all, the program is free to use. There is absolutely no cost or downside to using the ScriptSave WellRx service, and using the program couldn't be easier.
Using ScriptSave WellRx
To use the WellRx service, you simply head over to the ScriptSave WellRx website and download the WellRx Discount card, or you install the mobile app. Once you do this you can begin to price compare, which ScriptSave has made incredibly easy. Now we live in Atlanta, and I wanted to see pricing from pharmacists near me for all of my prescriptions. So I entered my zip code and what drug I needed. ScriptSave WellRx then generated a list of twenty pharmacies near me that was a part of the plan and what they would charge for my medicine. It was here that I realized I had been overpaying by a lot. Take my blood pressure medication. I was paying $20 a month for this drug through insurance. ScriptSave WellRx had pharmacies selling the same medication for $2.23 a month. Seriously? I had been overpaying by better than $17 a month…and that was for just one medication.
I then looked up each drug that I needed and price compared. As I did this, I saved each drug to my Medicine Chest, which is a feature of the program. Medicine Chest is where you save all the drugs that you buy regularly, and it allows you to quickly compare all of your medicine costs in one place as often as you like. And you should compare and check often. Drug pricing changes all the time, and the medicine chest will show you real time, current pricing for everything that you use. The medicine chest can be set up to show either the one single pharmacy that will offer the lowest one stop shop pricing or the specific combination of pharmacies that will offer the lowest pricing on every medicine needed.
To use the program at the pharmacy, you simply show your free downloadable membership card (or the app) to the pharmacist and ask that they show you the ScriptSave WellRx pricing. If you have insurance ask to see a comparison, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that you can save a little cash.
Really the only “catch” that I found was that you can't stack savings. In other words, you can't use say a coupon AND the ScriptSave WellRx pricing at the same time. The same applies with insurance, you have to use either the insurance price or the WellRx price. If you would like to try the ScriptSave WellRx program, head over to the website or download the app. Additionally, you can use the card below. It is a fully functioning card that you can save to your phone or print out to bring with you to the pharmacy.
So if your New Year's resolution involves getting healthy while possibly saving a little cash, check out ScriptSave WellRx. It just might put a little money in your pocket for free. We hope that you enjoyed our A Healthier Me in 2018 with ScriptSave WellRx post.
