Busting the Price of Your Rx

Published January 1, 2005

Did you know that more than 30 million uninsured Americans just became eligible for savings of between 25 and 40 percent on 275 brand-name and generic prescription drugs?

Thanks to a new, non-government discount program called Together Rx Access, anyone who is uninsured and persons who do not have Medicare or Medicaid should apply. To qualify for Together Rx Access, you must:

  • be a legal U.S. resident under age 65;
  • have an annual income not greater than $30,000 (single) and $60,000 (family of four); and
  • not be eligible for government assistance programs.

Enrollees receive a no-cost Together Rx Access Card they show at the pharmacy counter to receive immediate savings … and no claim forms to hassle with!

The National Association of Chain Drug Stores, whose membership consists of more than 200 chain community pharmacy companies, supports the program.

The program is a jointly sponsored by Abbott Laboratories, AstraZeneca, Aventis Pharmaceuticals, Bristol-Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline, Janssen Pharmaceutical Products, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical, Inc., Pfizer Inc., Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc., and TAP Pharmaceutical Products Inc.

These benefits extend to millions of Americans, including children, who are uninsured and don’t have prescription drug coverage.
