Are Your Patients Struggling With Prescription Costs?
Posted on: 8/14/2019

Prescription drugs can be a significant financial burden for your patients.

Check out these alarming nationwide stats1:

  • From 2008 to 2016, prices for brand name drugs rose 208%

  • Patients are spending more than $450 billion annually on prescription medications to treat their health issues

  • 19% of patients on prescription drugs have skipped a dosageor cut it in half in order to reduce costs 

ISMS offers a benefit partner that may help ease the high costs of medications for your patients: the Illinois Rx Card. Patients (and doctors, too!) can save up to 75 percent on their prescription drugs with this FREEcard

This savings program was launched to help uninsured and underinsured Illinois residents afford their prescription medications. The program can also be used by patients who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits. 

Physicians who are interested in ordering free cards for their clinic/hospital may contact Program Development Director Stacy Miller by email or by calling 888-615-1988.
