Feb. 28, 2013 - PRLog -- CareNovateMag [] launches a free national discount prescription program ( that is expected to save millions of dollars for caregivers, patients, sandwich generation families, baby boomers, seniors, pets  and consumers who are in need of medications for themselves, loved one, loved pet and/or having difficulty affording their medications. Co-branded with NeedyMeds , this drug discount card can save users up to 80% or more off the cost of prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, medical supplies written as a prescription and pet prescription drugs purchased at a pharmacy.

“We are exceedingly pleased to be able to work with NeedyMeds whose mission is to help patients find assistance with medication and healthcare costs. Our goal here is to be able to help more caregivers, seniors and patients save money on prescriptions for their health problems so that they can focus their energies to other things in life.”, Mr. Erowele, Cofounder of

According to NeedyMeds’ Director of Outreach, Elizabeth Messenger, their President, “Dr. Richard Sagall wanted to start a website where people could find resources to afford the costs of healthcare,” so NeedyMeds was born and has been helping people to do just that for the last 15 years. “No one should ever have to pay full price on a medication.” She also added, “We’ve heard the card helps many elderly people get through the Medicare Part D Donut Hole, when they have no coverage and hit the Donut Hole toward the end of the year.”

CareNovateMag / NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card ( is accepted at over 70,000 pharmacies, including major chains such as Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and at regional chains and local stores. There are no income, insurance, or residency requirements, and no fees or registration process needed to use the card. One card can be shared with friends and family members, or they can print their own. The card is active immediately and never expires.
Anyone can use the card (, but it can't be combined with insurance. You can use it instead of insurance if:

* The insurance has no drug coverage
* There is a high drug deductible
* There is a low medicine cap that has been met
* There is a high copay and the card offers a better price
* You are in the Medicare Part D donut hole
Please note this is NOT insurance.

Anyone who chooses to use the card will simply present this card to a participating pharmacy to receive a discount on his or her prescription. Patients who have Medicare, including Part D, Medicaid or any state or federal prescription insurance can only use this card if they choose not to use their government-sponsored drug plan for their purchase. The card is not valid in combination with those programs. For questions concerning the card, call 1-888-602-2978 or visit  As a bonus, any time you use our card, a small donation will be made to our organization so everyone wins.
