McLennan County has announced a new, free prescription discount card for all McLennan County residents. The card, called BetterRxCard, provides significant savings at
30 county pharmacies, including Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Lynn’s La Vega, HEB, Target
and Brookshire Brothers, among others. This card has two savings features designed
to help when insurance is not available for your medication, or if you want to try
to reduce expense brand name drug costs.
The first way provides an average savings per prescription of $26 – a discount
of 43% – on most drugs, when presented at the pharmacy counter. Simply
pick up a card at a local county office (click
here for the latest list) and you can use it at most county-based pharmacies and 60,000 across the U.S. There is no sign-up process or membership fee, everyone
qualifies, there are no limits or expiration date and it is ready for immediate
use. The card may not be used in addition to insurance you may have.
The second savings feature from BetterRxCard is called EquivaMeds. This is an online
tool that helps you find lower cost prescription drug options to your expensive
brand-name drugs – even if a generic isn’t available – and then helps you work with
your personal physician to see if a switch is right for you. The average savings for EquivaMeds users recently was over $60 per month. EquivaMeds is offered for
free to McLennan County residents with a BetterRxCard. Once you have a card visit:
