Aurora Pharmacy launched Prescription Savings Club

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Members will be able to save money on thousands of generic, brand medications

MILWAUKEE - Aurora Pharmacy launched Aurora Pharmacy Prescription Savings Club (APPSC), a prescription savings club program for patients who are uninsured or underinsured on June 15.

For an $11.95 annual fee, patients will be able to receive a 30-day prescription of more than 300 generic drugs for $4.99 and 90-day prescriptions of these same generics for $10.99. Customers will receive $12 in coupons for Aurora Pharmacy brand products when they enroll.

"In today's economy, it's important that we offer our patients additional ways to save," said John Gates, director of operations for Aurora Pharmacy. "The prescription club can provide a great savings for people who do not have prescription drug coverage or insurance that does not cover all their medication needs."

Under the program, customers will save on brand name and generic medications, including those for:

  • Allergies
  • Antifungal treatment
  • Antiviral treatment
  • Arthritic and pain
  • Asthma and COPD
  • Blood pressure and heart health
  • Mental health conditions
  • Skin conditions
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Women's health
  • Diabetes
  • Cholesterol problems
  • Coughs and colds
  • Eye conditions
  • Gastrointestinal conditions
  • Infections

The savings club is not an insurance program, and anyone receiving prescription benefits from a publicly funded health care program such as Medicare or Medicaid are not eligible. For additional information, please go to www.AuroraPharmacy.org or ask an Aurora pharmacist.
There are many other benefits of using an Aurora Pharmacy, including:

  • Patient consultations. Aurora pharmacists provide one-on-one consultations and are always available to answer your questions.
  • Competitive pricing. We do regular "market basket" comparisons and our prices are consistent, and in many cases lower, than other pharmacies.
  • Refills available online or by telephone.
  • Safety and accuracy. Our pharmacists check and recheck every prescription.
  • Value-based services. We always check for and dispense comparable generic medications (when allowed by your doctor) and offer Aurora Freedom 55+ members' discounts.
  • Convenience. Home delivery is available from all our pharmacies.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a national leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora offers care at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
