Healthcare Alliance provides members with pre-activated cards for use with its pharmacy discount program. Once a member receives his card, he can take it to a pharmacy to see if there is an available discount on the cost of the prescription. Members do not have to visit specific pharmacies to receive the benefits.
The Healthcare Alliance Card saves members an average of $500 a year as of 2015, notes Healthcare Alliance. There is never a fee to use the card and Healthcare Alliance provides the cards at no cost to members. Users may print a paper card at home to use immediately or wait until they receive a plastic card in the mail.
Healthcare Alliance is not insurance and is not intended to replace health insurance. It is solely a pharmacy discount program for prescription medications. However, users may ask a pharmacy whether the program or their health insurance provides the biggest discount on a medication. Members should be aware that Healthcare Alliance does not usually count toward an insurance deductible. If it does, the additional savings means that it will take longer to reach the total deductible.Learn more about Health Insurance
