Question DetailsAsked on 3/23/2017

I received a letter from Washington Prescription Assistance Program. Is this a scam?

Basically the letter is saying that you will save up to 75% on your prescriptions. Can someone please follow up on this ASAP. Thank you!

There is a state-sponsored Washington Prescription Drug Program discount card, which is usable by all Washington residents - info here on a state website link -

However, Washington Prescription Assistance Program sounds like a knockoff of the National Prescription Assistance Program - possibly a spinoff to try to capitalize on the similarity to the state-sponsored program. Here is a link to a lot of previous responses on that company/card -

Basically speaking, assuming we are talking a private discount card program NOT run by the state, if you did not specifically ask for it or get it from your health insuranceprovider, assume it may be a scam, that it does a lot more for them than it does for you, and that your personal financial and medical information may be at risk in using it. Some are legit - some outright scams, some halfway in between in that they are legit but what you pay fo the drugs may be more than if you just paid cash.
