NeedyMeds at the Gloucester City Council
Gloucester, MA (3/13/12) – In the past 2½ years, residents of Gloucester have saved nearly $350,000 on prescription costs with the Gloucester Fund NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card. The partnership between these two groups has also earned the City of Gloucester nearly $3,000 for use in city-wide health-related projects.
At the March 13th meeting of the Gloucester City Council, Rich Sagall, MD, President of NeedyMeds, updated the councilors on the use of the Gloucester-specific card. The card, which is free and distributed at many sites throughout the city, has been used to save on nearly 12,000 prescriptions. The average savings per prescription is close to $30.00.
Nationally, the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card saved users over $1 million in December and another $1 million in January. In total, the card has saved users over $15 million in three years.
The free card can be used by anyone, as there are no age, income, insurance or residency restrictions. People with insurance or on state or federal programs can use the card if their drugs are not covered or if they have poor medication coverage. The card offers a discount of up to 80% off the cash price of prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and medical supplies if written as a prescription, and pet prescription drugs purchased at a pharmacy. The average savings is about 50%.
The drug discount card is accepted at all the pharmacies on Cape Ann and over 62,000 pharmacies nationwide. There is no registration process and all use is anonymous. Unlike many other cards, no user-identifiable information is gathered, offering a high level of privacy protection.
In addition to Gloucester, NeedyMeds is working with Lowell, Chelmsford, Dracut and other municipalities on the North Shore of Boston. NeedyMeds has partnership programs with over 200 local, regional and national organizations.
“Daily we hear from card users who tell us by using the card they can afford medicines they otherwise couldn’t afford,” says Rich Sagall, MD, president of NeedyMeds. He goes on, “It’s very gratifying to see how we are helping so many people who might have had to go without their medications.”
As a non-profit, NeedyMeds keeps costs down and passes the savings on to the card users. Many pharmacists have reported that the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card offers the best discount of any drug discount card.
