San Antonio, TX (BlackNews.com) — Each year, Americans fill over 3.6 billion prescriptions. When broken down, that’s an average of one prescription per month for every man, woman and child living in this country. Yet, there are still 50 million people who have no healthcare benefits of any kind.
“The health care crisis is a real tragedy, especially when it comes to medications,” says Dr. Devin Holland, founder of the NuLegacy Rx Card. “Americans are spending more than ever on prescriptions; a whopping $709 per person in 2003 – up over 1600% from 1970 when that same average was just $43.”
“Our NuLegacy program offers everyone the opportunity to save up to 75% on prescriptions at over 56,000 pharmacies across the country. The best part of all is that we give away this program absolutely free; no one ever pays a dime to access these savings,” Dr. Holland continues.
Jayne Carnall, of Flower Mound, Texas said she can’t believe it’s free to everyone. “What an incredible program. I just printed my card off the website and took it to the pharmacy. I saved $45.25 on one prescription.” Most NuLegacy cardholders experience an average savings of 20% – 50% depending on the type of drug.
Generic drugs typically have larger savings than brand. With U.S. prescription drug spending projected to increase from $200 billion currently almost $500 billion by 2016 – an increase of 148% in just 11 short years – it appears that things are only going to get worse for consumers.
The NuLegacy card also offers significant savings on lab and imaging tests well as diabetic testing supplies. Those interested in learning more about the NuLegacy Rx Card program can visit their website at www.NLRxCard.com/ucs or call for more details, 904-573-2550.
