I too was confused when I recieved these cards. This is a scam if there was ever a scam. I called and asked the customer service person, what if I was on Medicare and had my drugs covered by the govenment...then I used the cards and would loose my medicare coverage. This is a scam...don't go near this - I am reporting them.

THEY LOST A LAW SUITE IN MONTANA IN 2006 FOR VIOLATIONS OF THE MONTANA INSURANCE CODE & FOR DISTRIBUTING DISCOUNT CARDS WITHOUT A CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRATION. NOT SURE IF THEY HAVE THE PROPER CERTIFICATIONS FOR THE STATE YOU LIVE IN BUT I'M NOT GOING TO USE THE CARDS THEY SENT ME AND I HAVE SOME VERY EXPENSIVE DAILY MEDS. THE LITTLE BIT OF MONEY THEY MAY SAVE YOU IS NOT WORTH THE TROUBLE YOU WILL HAVE IF THEY DO STEAL ALL YOUR INFORMATION.

I picked up a card from a display at my doctor's office last week. I went to Walgreens today to pick up some prescriptions. The card was accepted but I only used it for a prescription that was not covered by my Part D insurance through AARP/United Health Care because the AARP/UHC discount was better.
The prescription was $34.99, using the RXrelief Pharmacy Discount Card, the price was reduced to $14.45. The Pharmacy staff said that none of my personal information was sent to Rxrelief.
It's not a scam. Go to their website, enter your zip code to see what pharmacies accept the card.

I am also receiving meds from RX Outreach. Go to their website to see if you qualify for reduced price meds. ($20 for 3 mts./any amt.) I've been getting a couple of prescriptions/a 90 day supply/ all of this year. I've saved alot of money. It's the real thing. Your dr. needs to sign the application and send in the prescriptions for 3 mts. That's it. Go to the maker of each of your meds online and see if you qualify for free meds direct from the company. I save $900 a month.

Actually I just contracted under a PDM, I find nothing shady about the program although some programs are not directly under PDM they are under just affiliates.

My mom uses the cards to save money also.

If you want you can print one off on my site
yes I find the temporary site they gave me atrocious and sketchy looking. If you want a discount no tracking no forms just print the card.

Has anyone asked their pharmacist what personal info if any is provided or communicated to the discount provider?

You can print a card online providing absolutely no personal info at all.

I would not dismiss the business just because it has a mailbox at a UPS store. As an owner of a corporation myself, we do this, as our particular type of business does not require a retail or office storefront to service clients, and would just be more unnecessary overhead cost which would have to be passed on to the customer. A successful business model does not have to require a fee from the customer at all, as in this case, the money comes from a kickback from the pharma companies they partner with.
They may be gathering information either for themselves or the pharmceutical companies, but whether it is personal info or just supply/demand data is unknown.
I know there is a drug shortage currently in the US and data collection on what drugs are in demand would be a great resource for those companies that would create a way to provide manufacturers accurate data on what is used, and the demographic of users.
A company found a profitable business model that makes money and also provides a service to people at no cost.
There's a problem in that?

The RxRelief Pharmacy Discount Cards our family received also included a letter but nowhere did it state "you have been approved" as some are stating above, and our cards do not have magnetic strips. We will try it at our Wal-Mart, and CVS and see how it goes. Don't really see the harm in trying them.

I take Vyvanse. I had a card issued by Squire, the company that makes Vyvanse, that allowed me about a hundred dollars discount on my Vyvanse scripts. The medication is extremely expensive. 30 of them are Normally $195. With the Squire card I paid $80.50. Since it ran out last month, and I had to pay the full $195 for my script, I made it a point to try to find a discount on it somewhere. I printed a temporary card 10 minutes ago, and plan on taking it to WalMart to see if they'll take it. It says I'll get $86% off. If I do, I will love those guys, and I'll report it right here. If nobody will take it, or if it doesn't save me any money, I'll report that, too. ∫ut I'm telling everyone this-- if this card saves me a hundred bucks a month, I could care less what they do with any personal info they get from me. It'd be worth it. Sounds like there are a lot of untrusting souls out there that aren't thinking this through.

Just food for thought, most drugs are sold with, in some cases, a 1000% markup. Usually to just pay for the research that went into making them. After a while, maybe a few years, the drug pays itself off which means the companies have the capacity to significantly lower the prices, but usually they don't. I'm betting, since the enaction of Obamacare, Big Pharma knows more people will be using meds, which means they can offer high discounts through a third party they fund, and still retain their profit margine. Just a guess though. And it does make sense that this card could be used to help drug companies know what to make and at what quantities.

I do not need any rx discounts as I am 100% service-connected veteran, and VA provides my meds. However, I got this card yesterday, and have lots of questions about it. While the idea of anything free these days, sounds fishy, apparently this card is actually real, at least to some extent. Their website looks real, and some folks have had good experiences with it. I agree that our personal info is everywhere, and clearly, if they knew me, they wouldn't waste a stamp on mine because I'll never need it, and if they had any real info on me, they'd know that. I realize this card and it reliability isn't of any value to me, but I can say that they don't have a clue who they're sending it to. That means it's "shotgun" mailed from a bought mailing list. That fact in itself, makes it suspect.

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.
We wonder that too. Bluecross is the only company that knows my wife's new name. We married 2 weeks ago. She just received the card
