May 8th, 2009 – One of our missions at Colorado Health Insurance Brokers is to help our clients get the right health insurance coverage plan for their individual needs. Most people’s budgets require them to balance their need for health insurance coverage with the cost of available health plans.
One important component of a good quality health insurance plan is prescription coverage. There are a variety of health insurance plans that offer a range of coverage (or not) for prescriptions. Some basic copay plans have a separate deductible for prescriptions, some plans cover drugs after their medical deductible is satisfied, some plans cover generic drugs only, and other plans may not include coverage for prescriptions at all.
Many Colorado residents can benefit from the Colorado Drug Card, which is a free prescription drug discount card available free to all Colorado residents. According to their website, this card offers up to a 75% discount on many prescriptions and is valid at over 50,000 national and regional pharmacies. The prescription discount card is not an insurance product, but this free discount card it can be used at King Soopers, City Market, K-Mart, Rite Aid, Albertsons, Savon Pharmacy, Safeway, Costco, and Walgreens.
