The Florida Rx Card Program is proud to announce that PUBLIX is the new preferred pharmacy for its free prescription discount card program in Florida. This program was launched to help the uninsured and under-insured afford prescription medications. The Florida Rx Card program has no restrictions or participation requirements and is open to every resident of Florida.
The Florida Rx Card was launched to help the uninsured and under insured people of Florida afford their prescription medications. However, the program can also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits (which is common in many HSA’s and high deductible health plans). Program Director, Lindsey Miller notes, “even those with prescription coverage can utilize the program by using it for their non-covered or non-formulary drugs.” This program even covers some pet medications (medications that are available at participating pharmacies). The Florida Rx Card program has no restrictions or participation requirements and the program is open to every resident of Florida.
All residents of Florida can get one of these cards by downloading it from the official website at www.FloridaRxCard.com . The Florida Rx Card is free to use and the prescription savings can be up to 75%! The card can be used at over 3,000 pharmacies throughout Florida, and a complete list of participating pharmacies can be found on the www.FloridaRxCard.com website. Publix has agreed to assist those who are unable to download a card from the www.floridarxcard.com website. Customers who are aware of the Florida Rx Card Program, but are unable to print a card from the website, can ask a Publix pharmacist to fill their prescriptions with the discounts of the Florida Rx Card Program.
United Networks of America is delighted to partner with Publix and every other pharmacy in Florida in the interest of promoting more affordable prescription drugs to all Floridians. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to work with Publix Pharmacies to provide the people of Florida with free access to prescription discounts,” said Ryan Jumonville, president and chief executive officer of United Networks of America. “We’ve successfully launched programs in New York, California, New Jersey, Ohio, Utah, South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, Louisiana, Arizona, Colorado, and Tennessee. We’ve saved the residents of these states millions of dollars and we look forward to doing the same for the people of Florida.”
The Florida Rx Card Program is a special project of United Networks of America and is presented as a community service. “It has been the goal of United Networks of America (UNA) to help people around the country to obtain affordable health care,” says UNA President/CEO, Ryan Jumonville. “Our original mission was to plug the niches and gaps in coverage our health plan clients offer to their members, but we saw the opportunity to perform a valuable community service by opening this up as a free program to the uninsured as well,” continued Mr. Jumonville, “and it is our hope that this will enable more people to afford and proactively take the medications they genuinely need!”
This program is powered by UNA Rx Card, which is a division of United Networks of America. Brian Oliver, EVP, noted that “the Free Rx program has brought almost $66,000,000 in prescription savings to members around the country in the short history of the program with calendar year savings for 2007 projected to approach $100,000,000.” UNA Rx Card is the fastest growing discount prescription card company in the United States.
