Phoenix, AZ, August 16, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- What happens when there is an easy cure, but no way to attain it? Prescription drugs can be expensive and simply unaffordable for those without insurance. Americans without prescription drug coverage can now save money when they use MeMD’s new prescription discount program.
MeMD, an online healthcare service, has partnered with MedOne Healthcare Systems to provide patients a prescription discount program at no charge. Offered at over 60,000 pharmacies nationwide, this program can be used for both generic and brand prescription medications. The program provides savings to users by comparing the discounted price to the pharmacy’s regular cash price – users will always receive the lowest cost available.
“We are very excited to par,tner with MedOne and provide low cost medications for our patients” says Dr. John Shufeldt, MeMD CEO and Founder.
MeMD allows people to consult with a doctor online and receive personalized treatment from the comfort of their home or office via a virtual HIPPA compliant web exam. If a prescription is needed, the MeMD physician will electronically route it to the nearest pharmacy of the patient’s choice, where they can then use the prescription discount program.
Anyone can use the prescription discount card and receive significant savings. After completing a MeMD online visit the patient can request a card; an email is sent that day with their membership information for immediate use. A durable, plastic discount card will then be mailed to the patient for future use.
Attaining the discount card is as easy as going to http://www.MeMD.me, completing your first visit, and requesting your prescription discount card.
Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, MeMD is revolutionizing the healthcare industry by offering access to affordable, convenient, on-demand and secure web-based health care. MeMD combines proven telemedicine technologies with business model innovations to improve access to medical providers, reduce healthcare costs, and make the experience of seeing a physician convenient, enjoyable, and affordable – the way it should be.
