Features Health & Wellness Macon Public Health receives free medication help

The Macon County Public Health Center has received an initial donation of free prescription cards, courtesy of American Consultants Rx.

As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn, loss of jobs, foreclosures, high cost of gas, and the rising cost of prescription drug cost, Charles Myrick, the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project. The project consists of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not-for-profits, hospitals, schools, churches, etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured, underinsured, and seniors in dealing with the high cost of prescription drugs.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and more than 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to more than 40K organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004. The ACRX cards will offer discounts on name brand drugs of up to 40 percent off and up to 60 percent off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date. One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated. The cards are good at more than 50,000 stores, from Walgreen, Walmart, Eckerd's, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Anyone can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

The ACRX card is available online at http://www.acrxcards.org where it can also be downloaded free of charge.
