Lower Prescription Drug Costs
There are few expenses rising faster for Americans than the cost of prescription drugs. In fact, prescription drug prices are the biggest reason for the rise in overall health care costs. Take a look an average family of four, which spent $24,671 for health care in 2015. This represents a 6.3% increase, according to the 2015 Milliman Medical Index, which underscores the rise in prescription drug prices as the biggest reason for the increase in health care spend, a category that grew by 13.6% from 2014 to 2015.
One solution to help make meds available and affordable is by tapping into manufacturer assistance programs. Every year, pharmaceutical manufacturers give away billions of dollars of name-brand medications, typically those meds that qualify as maintenance drugs. ScriptSourcing can help members of your health plan take advantage of these programs.
While each manufacturer has different criteria to qualify for their assistance program, a household of four earning a $120,000 or less can typically qualify for many name-brand medications at a lower cost. Medications can be shipped directly to an employer’s house, picked up at the pharmacy, or depending on the medication, at the doctor’s office.
