Can I use the card if I have insurance?
Typically, if you have healthcare coverage with a prescription drug benefit, you may not use (or need to use) the Prescription Coupon program or Scrips4Less card. This also applies to those covered by most Medicare plans. However, cards may be used in place of such insurance coverage if the discount received is less than the price for a particular drug using your insurance. Medicare Part-D subscribers may also use the Prescription Coupon or Scrips4Less card if and when their plan no longer covers their drug benefits ("doughnut hole"). If you have insurance, you may want to have your pharmacist store the information on your Prescription Coupon plan as "back-up" in their computers, that can be used to compare drug costs using your insurance or the card at the time your prescriptions are ordered or filled.
How can PrescriptionCoupon.com provide free cards to all Americans?
The Prescription Coupon program is made possible and funded through the support of pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies. Cash customers provide a convenience to pharmacies because they're not required to fill out or file insurance forms or wait long periods for payment. Pharmaceutical manufacturers discount their medications to lower income families as part of their mandate to provide free or affordable drugs to the millions of Americans in need.
How much do card users really save?
Average savings vary from 10% to as high as 90% on certain medications. Each pharmacy offers different levels of savings on different medications. Certain drugs are already deeply discounted (loss leaders) and receive no additional discounts when presenting the card. Users are encouraged to contact their local pharmacies to compare savings on their prescribed medications using the card.
Can I use the card to save on over-the-counter (OTC) health products?
Most pharmacies will only honor the Prescription Coupon program for legally prescribed medications.

Most pharmacies throughout the United States and its territories accept the Prescription Coupon program, including virtually all major pharmacy chains. If your pharmacist does not, they can contact the Scrips4Less Pharmacy Help Desk toll free: (877) 277-7934 for assistance.
