OOA Offers New Prescription Discount Card
(October 13, 2017) Last year, US drug costs increased $43 billion—the highest in 13 years—while the average copay increased 34 percent and earnings for full-time, year-round workers were flat during the same time period. The difference between rising health care costs and income can discourage people from obtaining the medications they need.
The OOA Board of Trustees has approved offering a discount card which helps patients find the lowest cost option for prescriptions while requiring no financial commitment on the part of the participant or the OOA. This new partnership with RxCut will offer Ohio patients access to prescription medications at 50 to 87 percent rate reductions.
