Helping make prescription medicines affordable to all people
NEW YORK, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Watertree Health, a privately held company founded in 2010, is announcing the national launch of its free Prescription Discount Card program. The card has been introduced across the country over the last year, through the company's unique community-based initiative, using a network of local representatives.
For more than 100 million people in America who don't have prescription coverage, the difference between getting better and staying healthy can often depend on something as simple as access to affordable medicines.
"Many hard-working people are now having to decide between their medicines or food," says Watertree Health co-founder and CEO, Matt Herfield. "I don't believe that's a choice they should ever have to make."
In keeping with the company's mission to help people maintain their health and well-being by providing significant savings on prescription medicines, Watertree Health has forged partnerships with the nation's leading Pharmacy Benefit Managers.
Over 60 thousand independent and major retail pharmacies across the country (CVS, Walmart, Walgreens, Target, Rite Aid, Costco, etc.) have joined the effort to keep Americans healthy – along with hospitals, clinics, and other health care providers. In addition, charities and other organizations are helping to promote and distribute the Watertree Health Prescription Discount Card to the people they service.
The Prescription Discount Card comes pre-activated, is completely free, easy to use, and provides significant savings. Individuals may get the card by going to www.WatertreeHealthCard.com or, for those without access to the internet, through a community representative.
The Watertree Health Prescription Discount Card program is a simple way to get significant savings on brand name and generic prescriptions, diabetic supplies and pet medicines. It is not and should not be mistaken for health insurance.
