RxCut® Plus - Prescription Savings Program
Immediate Savings: The RxCut® Plus Health Care Discount Savings Card enables you to receive discounted pricing on prescription medications. It can offer immediate savings on prescription medications at participating pharmacies for people that are without health insurance, have prescriptions not covered by health insurance, and are in the Medicare Part D donut hole. This is not insurance, nor is it intended to replace insurance.
Show Your Card Every Time: Simply present your RxCut® Plus card with each prescription from your doctor to the participating pharmacy at the time of purchase to receive your discounts. If you need to transfer a prescription, bring your empty prescription bottle or label with you to the pharmacy. In some instances, the pharmacist may store your card information in their computer. However, to be certain you receive the maximum benefit, you need to show your card each time you have your prescriptions filled.
Typical savings between 25% and 75%: off the pharmacy's usual and customary retail price of prescription medications, with the highest savings on generic medications. Your cost will be the discount price with the RxCut® Plus card or the pharmacy's usual and customary retail price, whichever is lower. This means you are assured the lowest price in that store, at the time you purchase the prescription medicine. If the pharmacy's price is lower, there is no savings or discount and the RxCut® Plus card cannot lower the copay for medicine covered by insurance. You are responsible for the entire payment of the prescription medications purchased after any discounts are applied, plus any dispensing fee.
Tips to Save More
Select the lowest-cost alternative: Many brand-name prescription medications have a generic equivalent. On average, generics cost 20-70% less and may produce the same results as comparable brand-name medications. Generic medications are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for safety and effectiveness, and are manufactured under the same strict rules that apply to their brand-name twin. So ask your physician and pharmacist if there is a generic medication that will save you money. If no generic equivalent is available, there may still be a lower-cost alternative within the same class of drugs that performs the functions your care requires. Once again, consult with your physician on these money-saving alternatives.
Obtain a larger supply: In most cases, your cost per dosage will decrease as the amount you have dispensed at one time increases. If you will be taking a medication for an extended period of time, ask your physician if it would be appropriate to prescribe a 90-day supply rather than a 30-day supply.
Consult with your physician about alternative therapies: Before you begin a new prescription medication, talk with your doctor about non-prescription modifications to your lifestyle, diet or exercise. These changes may postpone, reduce or avoid the need for the cost of and taking a new medication.

Shop only at preferred pharmacies: All chain pharmacies and most independent pharmacies have been given equal opportunity to serve you via this program. Participating pharmacies are required to offer you deep discounts and assist in performing some fairly complicated medication management procedures for card holders, and not all pharmacies agree to participate. However, that gives you the confidence of knowing that pharmacies participating in this program are concerned with your health and saving you money, and therefore, are deserving of your business and loyalty.
Understand your medication therapy: You invest a lot of money in medications. In order to get the most value for your dollar, you need to understand how to use your prescription drugs effectively. Make sure your physician and pharmacist explain how and when to take each prescription medication. Some factors to consider when trying to get the most from your medication are the effects of:
- Food and water being taken with your medication.
- The time of day you take your medication.
- Effects of other medications, including over-the-counter medications, on your prescription.
Review your other medications: Disclose all the medications that you are taking to your physician and pharmacist before they prescribe or dispense a new medication. Some medications may intensify or reduce the effectiveness of another, or may even possibly duplicate the effects of another medication you are taking.
