That is easy to answer - no not all are legit, and many that are "legit" sell your personal information (including medical history) to database companies. And like health insurance plans, many others have a higher charge for prescriptions than the over-the-counter price - for instance, my health insurance came up 50-200% more expensive (just for the co-pay part) for the meds our family uses than the over-the0-counter cash quote - but the pharmacies will not sell you over-the-counter if they have you in the system as a member of a drug or health plan - another example of the idiocy of the regulators controlling health care.


you can google a search phrase like this - single care prescription card complaints - to look for complaints about that company. Course, not finding complaints does not mean it is good - because a lot of these card providers change card names frequently to stay ahead of the complaints.


Here are a couple of links including at least a mention about Single Care I found, and a couple of warning articles on the cards in general (though there are some good ones, generally negotiated by larger organizations for their member benefit):

And if you have to pay for it - almost certainly a scam, because they make their money in what are basically kickbacks on the drug purchases (and selling your info in many cases).
