Healthcare costs are a hot button issue right now. Due to the Obama administration’s new health care law, most Americans must have health coverage in 2014 or pay a fee. Now with millions of Americans scrambling for insurance for the coming year, many are concerned whether the plans will cover prescriptions—and exactly how much will they have to pay out of pocket. Not to mention, even those with existing coverage are seeing a significant increase in prescription drugs costs that their current plans cover very little of. As a result, Elite Care has partnered with InCareRx to offer a discount card program that will help our patients reduce their out of pocket costs.
Many Americans are actively seeking insurance through HealthCare.gov, a marketplace setup by the government that offers state-specific information and transparency about the health insurance market so consumers can be sure they’re getting the best value. The creation of the website was a requirement of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law by President Obama in March, 2010.
“Anxiety is growing for consumers whose well-being depends on expensive medications. States running the marketplaces where the plans will be offered have not released details about which drugs will be covered. Insures have said little about how much consumers will be asked to contribute or what types of restrictions will be placed on certain medicines. Of the states that have revealed specifics, some have plans will require patients to contribute as much as 50 percent of the cost of the most expensive drugs.”
Needless to say, this creates financial stress in any household. Elite Care understands these costs and is able it help. Visit any Elite Care Emergency location to pick up your free pharmacy discount card.
