Saves you money, even if you have insurance
The card can be a great complement to insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. It cannot be combined with insurance to receive a deeper discount, but there are several ways in which this card can save you money:
 
  • No Coverage: Medication may not be covered by your health plan
  • High Deductibles: Some plans have a high deductible or require that the deductible be met before it will pay for medications
  • Co-Pays: Even with a low co-pay on brand name or generic medications (e.g., $10-15/per), the cost of the medication can be even cheaper with the card (e.g., $6/per). Savings can add up quickly if you use the card frequently.
 
Pricing does change over time, so it’s best to look up savings by drug name and zip code closest to your fill date. You’ll be amazed at how much prices can vary even within the same pharmacy chain, depending on location and the day.
 
How do I get the card?
It’s simple. To instantly print, download, or get a card by email, click here or text "KidneyRx" to 95577.
 
Just present the card when you fill a prescription. It’s a good idea to have the pharmacy keep the card on file, along with your insurance card. So, when you fill a prescription, the technician can check the cost with both cards—you’ll always pay the lower price. It’s that easy.
