Winchester, Virginia: While the GOP Primary and Obama Administration continue to focus on the healthcare debate, creative businesses continue to move ahead. Amy Ohm, the founder of the progressive website TreatmentDiaries.com, has launched a new free national discount prescription program that is expected to save millions of dollars for anyone in need of medication for their health problems and having difficulty during these challenging economic times.
NeedyMeds offers a drug discount card that can save users up to 80% or more off the cost of prescription medications for their health problems and over-the-counter drugs and medical supplies written as a prescription and pet prescription drugs purchased at a pharmacy. As a 501(c) (3) organizational information resource, NeedyMeds and its partner, Treatment Diaries, will be able to help patients save money on prescriptions for their health problems at over 62,000 pharmacies throughout the United States such as Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid and more. According to Dr. Richard Sagall, President of NeedyMeds, the free program has saved patients over $15 million as of February. The mission of NeedyMeds is to make information about assistance programs available to patients and their advocates about their health problems at no cost. “We are extremely pleased to be able to work with Treatment Diaries who, like us, has a mission to help those whose lives have been affected by health problems,” said Sagall.
“With a growing number of visitors to our site daily, it has always been central to our mission to make their journey with health problems easier to navigate. Most of our users require medication, either for themselves or for their loved ones, in order to feel better. NeedyMeds helps them not only save money, but their knowledgeable staff maintains a wealth of information on how to find the best possible options for prescription medicines to help ease the burden of their health problems,” said Amy Ohm. “The free discount card is simple to access and accepted throughout the United States, making it convenient and beneficial for all,” she continued.
