DESTIN, Fla., June 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Last week, continued hikes in prescription prices prompted Consumer Reports to issue two stories on the same day:
Watertree Health President, Shane Power says, “We are very familiar with the impact of high drug prices on consumers, which Consumer Reports talked about in their articles. Our community-based reps have heard from people that, before using my Company’s free prescription discount card, they were forced to spend less on food for their family or use their credit cards to pay for their medicine. We have also been told they may have skipped doses of medicine, rationed pills or just not filled their prescriptions. This kind of behavior is dangerous to their health, and it costs every taxpayer in the long run.
We created our Greatest Prescription Savings℠ (“GPS”) drug-price-lookup tool so people can see they can afford their prescriptions at their favorite pharmacy. To use GPS, consumers simply enter the name of their prescription and zip code at wtree.us/savingstool. If they don’t have a card already, they can get one on this website or by texting CARD to 95577. “
