I have been without medical insurance since I was laid off in August of last year. I live in fear that I will get sick and not be able to seek medical treatment. The last thing I need is a huge medical bill that could put me in debt.
Since prescription drugs are so expensive without insurance it is quite possible that many people do not get the drugs needed to treat their illness.
Walgreens Prescription Savings Club allows people to obtain an affordable plan to be able to purchase the drugs needed to get well. For only $35 dollars a year a family can join the plan. This includes dependents 22 years of age and under as well as pets. I especially like this feature. You never know when your pet might get sick or sustain an injury. Individuals like me can join for just $20 a month.
Other benefits include savings on 8,000 brand-name drugs and on all generic prescriptions. If someone needs diabetic supplies, pet prescriptions, nebulizers, or a flu shot the plan provides a discount to cover these needs. You can also earn bonuses when you purchase Walgreens products or use the photofinishing service.
I do not know when I will find a job and it certainly is great to know that I can find an affordable prescription plan.
