FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Jan. 10, 2018 -- Inside Rx, which administers a prescription savings program for the uninsured and underinsured, is helping more people access savings to prescription medications today with the launch of a Spanish-language version of the company's website, https://insiderx.com/es. Inside Rx, a partially owned subsidiary of Express Scripts (NASDAQ: ESRX), provides affordable access to brand and generic medications, delivering an average savings of 40 percent on select brand name prescription medications for the uninsured and those who experience high out-of-pocket drug costs.
"Managing one's health condition can be difficult. Combining the high costs of these medications with a language barrier makes it even harder," said Leslie Achter, CEO of Inside Rx. "By making our site available in Spanish, we hope to open the door to needed discounted medications to Spanish-speaking communities."
The Inside Rx discount program instantly provides access to significant savings for more than 70 popular brand-name drugs that treat diabetes, asthma, heart disease, depression, gastrointestinal disorders, gout and other common illnesses. Benefiting from these discounts is easy for eligible patients who only need to present the discount card at one of 40,000 participating pharmacies in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, which includes national chains such as CVS, Kroger Family of Pharmacies and Walgreens. There is no membership fee to obtain the card, which can help patients save hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year.
Inside Rx offers important discounts for medications that treat chronic conditions, such as diabetes, which disproportionately affect the Hispanic population. According to American Diabetes Association, prevalence rates of diagnosed and undiagnosed Hispanics can be as high as 18 percent in some culturally distinct Hispanic groups, compared to 10 percent for non-Hispanic whites.
The Inside Rx prescription savings program provides access to deep discounts on select brand-name diabetes medications, including insulin, as well as medications that treat other conditions commonly associated with diabetes, such as high cholesterol and blood pressure. People using the Inside Rx card can save an average of $180 on featured brand insulin medications.
A complete list of the medications and participating pharmacies, as well as instructions for downloading the card and eligibility information, can be found in Spanish at https://insiderx.com/es.
