Question DetailsAsked on 10/12/2016

I also received unsolicited pharmacy saving cards in the mail from a companycalled SINGLECARE. A scam too?

The letter that came with the cards listed several stores that
would accept the pharmacy cards like Rite Aid and CVS. Scam or
Not?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Lot of web articles say so.


Basically, if you did not ask for it, assume it is better for the vendor than for you. A lot of these "discount" cards you end up paying a higher price than street price - same as with health insurance plans.


Plus you are giving them a lot of personal and medical info that they can then sell as databases.


Check with you employer or health insurance company about what sort of discount card you may be eligible for - also with associations/organizations you might belong to. I know I have a free one called RXAmerica from a professional organization that saves us about 70-80% off most prescriptions, and at least promises to abide by healthcare provider privacy standards and to never sell any personal or medical information.
