Here’s an example of a press release that helps consumers during tough financial times.
TUCSON, Ariz. – April 7, 2020 – (Newswire.com)- The prescription drug discount program, ScriptSave WellRx, has announced a solution for prescription discounts to help the 10 million Americans who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19.
The exact number of Americans who lost their prescription coverage isn’t tracked, but the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates roughly 49 percent of the country’s total population gets their health insurance from their employer. Under that estimate, 5 million Americans will need assistance paying for their prescription medications.
Under the WellRx prescription discount program, anyone who goes to WellRx.com and types in the special code – “Relief” – will get a free prescription discount card that can be used at their more than 65,000 pharmacy partners including all major chains. The discount card can be downloaded, emailed or sent via text to any phone with a simple click. There is no need to create an account or sign up for anything. Customers who do create a free account can take advantage of additional app and website features.
Robert Craver, marketing director with ScriptSave WellRx, says these discount card programs, like WellRx.com can save consumers up to 80 percent off the cash prescription price across all major pharmacies. The average consumer saves about 60 percent off prescription prices under the program.
“We know what our customers are feeling right now and we wanted to find a way to help them in this time of need,” said Craver. “Using a discount card, like WellRx will lower the cost of medications and many times the price can be less than what a consumer might have paid under their health insurance plan.” Continue reading “Press Release – Helping Consumers during the Coronavirus”
