How to save money on prescription drugs
WASHINGTON — A prescription drug company is urging customers to save on prescription drug costs.
“When you get a prescription, you can expect to pay more than a pharmacy in the U.S.,” said Todd Wessel, vice president of pharmacy for Pfizer, in a press release Tuesday.
“If you’re in the middle of a campaign and you need a new pill or you need an urgent fix, then you can take a discount and save.”
The company says it will offer a free rebate of up to 75% off of the cost of all prescriptions for individuals and families with incomes up to $30,000, for a total savings of $1,500 per year.
Wessel said the rebate would apply to all prescriptions filled for one of the following prescription drugs: Vitamin C-21, vitamin E-3, vitamin A-1, vitamin D-3 , acetaminophen, acetaminol, aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, acetylsalicylic acid, sulfa, alpha-tocopherol, or zinc, according to the statement.
The drug is currently available for $10.50 per tablet or $30 for an 8-pack.
To qualify, a patient must have one prescription for each of the above listed medications.
To receive the rebate, a person must fill the form out and mail it to Pfizer in the mail or email address listed.
A $5,000 rebate will apply to prescriptions filled from September 15, 2018 through September 20, 2018.
Pfizer said it will provide up to 50% of the discounted price of the drug for new prescriptions.
For a limited time, customers will receive a free shipping label for any order that includes more than $50 of prescription medication.
Pfizers said the program will be available in states and territories with a cap of $50,000 in annual prescription spending.
