ACCE RX Card – Save Your Employees up to 75% on Their Prescriptions
The Chamber is proud to announce a brand new program as a member benefit: the ACCE RX Prescription Discount Card. This prescription discount card is an amazing way for members to offer a free benefit to their employees that may help them to save hundreds of dollars per year on their prescriptions. One in 10 Americans don’t take their medication as prescribed simply because they can’t afford to.
The card offers up to a 75% discount on most prescriptions at all local, chain pharmacies. With the cost of prescriptions rising dramatically, this member benefit can be offered free to your employees because you are a member of the Helena Chamber. The discount is available at nearly every pharmacy in Helena.
Offered by United Networks of America (UNA), there are no income requirements, no age limitations, and no applications to complete. The cards can be sent to you for your employees or downloaded on the chamber website (www.helenachamber.com) with your member code.
The program was launched to help uninsured and underinsured Americans afford their prescription medications. The card can be used by individuals who have prescription coverage but their medications are not being covered. When using the card, persons with insurance need to use either their insurance coverage or this prescription card—not both.
While researching this program, we checked a staff member’s prescription for Symbicort (allergy inhaler), which costs $178.00/month out-of-pocket with the Chamber’s insurance. With the discount card—checking UNA’s website—the same prescription, IN HELENA, would cost between $31.00 and $34.00. We also checked out Epi-pens that are being reported as costing $300-600.00. With this card, the cost in Helena was around $98.00.
To take advantage of this program call or stop by the Chamber office (225 Cruse Ave. Suite A) and we can get you started. Cards can be picked up at the chamber, mailed to your business, or downloaded on the chamber website. To download, you will need to call the chamber for your member code. All employees (full-time and part-time) and their immediate families are eligible for the cards.
