Prescription Savings and Beyond with ScriptSave® WellRx:
We definitely need to talk about ScriptSave® WellRx today! What is it? ScriptSave WellRx helps patients who face high out-of-pocket costs for their meds to save money when filling prescriptions. Think of it as a free “second opinion” on a patient’s out-of-pocket Rx costs. This free program is way more than just an Rx Savings Card, so I can’t wait to talk about the features!
Three New Features of ScriptSave® WellRx:
Feature 1 – Personalized Wellness & Grocery Guidance.
Boy, do I love this. It’s a module that’s only available in the latest version of the ScriptSave WellRx mobile app. It’s designed to help families align their grocery shopping habits to their personal health conditions and wellness goals. What I love is that you set up a health profile and use the built-in barcode scanner and text-based search tool in the app to review foods in the pantry, or even while out in grocery stores – browsing the aisles and making decisions.
Feature 2 – Price-Drop Alerts.
Hello, awesome to have this tool in the app and on the website. The tool is free online, so you don’t even need to get the app to use this tool, which is designed to allow patients with prescription medications to look for discounted prices at their regular retail pharmacies AND to set-up free alerts when prices drop. You can customize your own parameters for each medication, and when a price-drop alert is triggered, you’re notified by email.
Feature 3 – Take My Meds Reminders.
This feature is only available in the latest version of the ScriptSave WellRx mobile app – so make sure you’re updated! It’s designed to help patients and caregivers promote adherence to their prescription regimen. Late summer is a good time for us to use all that ScriptSave WellRx has to offer. Both kids have summer birthdays so we do both of their wellness appointments in August. That’s when we’ll get new prescriptions and we’ll be super happy to have this app!
The ScriptSave WellRx card/app is free to download – so nothing ventured and nothing gained. It requires no credit card details to be entered, and there is no membership fee. Also, there is no way to pay more than you would have done without the program. In the worst case, you get no discount, although you’ll be getting no discount with the peace of mind that you KNOW you’re getting the lowest price available in your area. Sometimes, your insurance copay can be more expensive than buying medications without insurance. Knowledge is power in this case. Be informed and it won’t cost you a thing! Also, prescription prices can change daily and can vary in price at different pharmacies. You’ll have the best info.
It’s a time of year to focus on family health/wellness. ScriptSave WellRx gives you the peace of mind that you’re getting the lowest price available in your area. I use the app to search for discounts where we live in Northampton, MA, and get all the information I need there on the screen. No calling around all the local pharmacies to ask what they charge for all the medicines for a family of four! As we have learned, insurance coverage does not necessarily mean low-cost prescription meds. This program lets us know the cash price for our prescriptions – insurance or not.
This is useful information. Like I said – it’s not just for the uninsured! It’s beneficial to us – as people who have high deductibles and copays. Also, the app helps us take meds on time, refill meds at the pharmacy, and there are alerts that highlight dangerous medication interactions and price-drop alerts.
I first started using ScriptSave WellRx about two years ago, and I’ve noticed the new changes. I’m super grateful for the updates. I think my favorite features are definitely the price-drop alerts, as well as the barcode scanner on foods to buy!
