I received an unsolicited Rxreliefcard in the mail today. It claims to cost me nothing but will save me big $$ on prescriptions. I'm always skeptical of getting something for free or a big discount. So has anyone else gotten a card and actually used it in this area? I'm hesitant to use it b/c they will have my name, address, etc once I do.

I have used the RxRelief Card. Not in Kentucky, but in New York. It saved me almost 50 percent on eye drops. I was skeptical too, so I e-mailed customer service. Someone got back to me right away and told me it was no strings attached, totally free, etc.
I've shared the card with friends too, and all have had a positive experience. If they have our personal information, I haven't noticed any effects of that.

Wow, you sound like you work for RXRelief. Caveat Emptor. Big Time.

I'm wondering if they are somehow stealing personal information with the card. It has a magnetic strip and has to be scanned. I think I will pass on using it.

No, I don't work for RxRelief. I'm just unemployed with chronic conjunctivitis. (And a fan)

Took a bit of research, but Rxrelief is owned by Health Care Alliance, which is owned SCRIPT RELIEF LLC which is partially owned by Catalyst Health Solutions, Inc (CHSI) and funded with VC from http://www.loebenterprises.com/selected-ventu...

Teufel Wolf, so what do all the companies tell us? I found out that much info on their website, but what's in it for them? How do they get their money to keep the doors open? Why are they being such good guys? Like my bank gave me more interest in may account if I used the Debit Card 12 times a month. I knew they were giving me more interest because I was generating income for them by causing the merchants to pay fees to the bank when I used my card. I repeat, how do these folks benefit from me using their card?

Just received the following from Healthcare Alliance concerning how they make their money on the card.

Hello Carol,

I understand your skepticism! But believe it or not, there's no catch. Because of our size and relationship to companies in the pharmaceutical industry, we are able to extend to the consumer the negotiated prices that insurance companies pay on medications. In return, we receive a small payback from the pharmaceutical companies each time an RxRelief Card is used.

Also, because the RxRelief Card is not insurance, itís free. You will never be charged to use your card at any time.

Thanks for writing in to us. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Best,
Diana

I received the same mailing today. At the bottom I noticed they supplied their "address." I did a Google Earth search and it pointed to a UPS store. Zoomed in, and though the UPS store is in a strip mall, not a single place in that strip mall has even the remotest connection to "Healthcare Alliance." In some form or another, this is a scam.

I'm surprised at everyone's paranoia here. Our personal information is collected in a huge number of forums, even this one here. With that said, you can print a card from the Rx website without providing a name.

If the card provides discounts, that is a good thing.

I don't think the mailing address should mean that the company is scam. It was probably just mailed from a UPS store. If you look at the website, you can see an address listed in NY.

I think this forum would benefit from better research.

I am usually skeptical of things like this, but I have used the card and it actually does give a solid discount.

I called to inquire about the discount to expect on a specific medication I need and am having trouble getting my insurance to cover. Instead, I was just asked my information, but was unable to get a direct answer to my question. It would be helpful if this customer service of theirs could provide better and more specific info. on the savings one could expect on a medication, esp. if one is able to provide the exact drug name & pharmacy they want to take it to, like I did. After all, who wants to just drive around time spending gas that is also oh so high these days (as they aren't offering a gas discount card for that), just to try and find out who will offer the greatest discount. I just recently moved to the state I'm in, and having trouble trying to discover where everywhere/ thing is as it is already, like new places they didn't have in the state where I came from.

So, a VC gets a card in the wallet of millions of Americans and can document its use. Then, they get the drug companies to pay more and more in reimbursements to them based on documented useage. Then they sell the "company" for a profit. That IS the business of a VC. Who knows? They definetly want to spread its use as fast as possible, so they give it away. Pooh, maybe the so-called 1% is giving you something of value, but they will absolutely try to profit from it--and that's OK. That's the American way. Capitalism baby! How many paychecks have you ever received from a poor person? If you get rid of the 1%, the 99% isn't better off.
