Can singlecare prescription cards save us money

My husband and I are both 66 and pay $54 dollars a month for prescriptions thru silver script. Then we get it discounted at rite aid. My question is if I don't pay a monthly fee, is singlecare REALLY going to save me money?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Depends on a lot of things - first (assuming you already have the card) ask your pharmacy if it reduces the cost on your prescriptions - and ask your doctor if the Singlecare type which also supposedly reduces doctors cost.


I VERY strongly suspect, because you are presumably on Medicare, that while it may or may not sve some prescription cost IF you are not on a Medicare Part D plan - if you are, insurance plans almost always use a fixed prescription reimbursement fee schedule and ignore any discount card - even if it might reduce the cost to both yoou and the plan.


I have a card from a professional association which, IF we did not have medical insurance coverage, would yield a lower total cost on our family's prescriptions than just what we pay in deductible - the insurer pays several times that amount, but will not let us use the card even though it would greatly reduce cost. There are a LOT of unfair situations and kickbacks (oh sorry, they call them "rebates" or "discounts") in the prescription drug market.

The singlecare website says: "Except for prescription drugs which you will pay directly to the pharmacy at the time of purchase, all other services received through a program provider will be CHARGED TO THE CREDIT CARD ON FILE IN YOUR MEMBER ACCOUNT. THE CHARGE WILL INCLUDE AN ADMINISTRATIVE FEE for use of the program.

"Towers Administrators Inc. is the licensed discount medical plan organization with its administrative office located at 4510 Cox Road, Suite 111, Glen Allen, VA 23060. SingleCare Services, LLC is the marketer of the discount medical plan organization including its website, singlecare.com, with its corporate office located at 71 Broadway, #255, New York, NY 10006. For additional information, including an up-to-date list of providers, or assistance with any issue related to program membership, please contact member support any time at www.singlecare.com."

It is a scam. They make money just like any other business, but they do it by scamming you, the consumer who believes that they will save you money.

I am on Medicare. Somehow I came up short on an antidepressant prescription. I was 8 capsules short & not able to get refill for 8 days. CVS said I could buy 8 for $32.00. At the register I said I had a singlecare card. Clerk said oh yes I see that. The cost will be $12.


I couldn't follow what the person was saying who called Singlecare scam......
