Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE PRESCRIPTION SAVINGS CARD?
The Prescription Savings Card is a non-insurance discount card that provides saving solutions for individuals and families. Our aim is to minimize your “out of pocket” expenses for your prescriptions.
The Prescription Savings Card allows card members to purchase prescriptions at over 55,000 participating nationwide pharmacies and receive the lowest available cost. At the point of purchase, members will receive the lower of the participating pharmacy regular retail price (as submitted to PSC or other nationally contracted discount price). Members always are assured of the lowest price! If the participating pharmacy price is higher than the PSC contracted price, then card members will receive a discount on that prescription. If the pharmacy price is lower than the PSC contracted price, then the member will not receive a discount; however, the card member does receive the lower price. This eliminates timely shopping at pharmacies to see who has the lowest price. Card members can go to one pharmacy and is assured that the price charged is fair and competitive.
