Savings Program Review:
Need help with the cost of your prescriptions? The CVS/pharmacy Health Savings Pass plan is a program that can help many people lower the amount they pay for their medications. The program is specifically designed for patients who have no prescription drug coverage or who may need to purchase medicines that their current insurance coverage does not cover. The official website is at www.cvshealthpass.com.
Savings and discounted prices are available on over 400 generic prescription medications and cover a wide range of health and medical conditions. Some of the medicine categories in the plan include allergy, asthma, cholesterol, arthritis, diabetes, pain management, gastrointestinal, glaucoma, thyroid conditions, mental health, heart health, skin conditions and blood pressure medications. This is only a short list of the medicines that are included in the list of 400+ generics.
