Features Health & Wellness Macon health center gets free medication help

Millions of Americans are striving to deal with the economic downturn, loss of jobs, foreclosures, high cost of gas, and the rising cost of prescription drugs. Charles Myrick, president of American Consultants Rx, has announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist 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, under insured, and seniors as they deal with the high cost of prescription drugs. One of the main locations in the Franklin area that received an initial donation of free prescription cards, is the Macon County Public Health Center. 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. (ACRX) an Atlanta-based company 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 18,000 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 of name brand drugs of up to 40 percent off and up to 60 percent off of generic drugs. They also carry 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.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336, Atlanta, GA 30321, faxing a written request to (404)305-9539,or calling the office at (404)767-1072. Include name (or organization and contact name), mailing address, designate Spanish or English, amount of cards requested and telephone number.

American Consultants Rx is working to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.
