Online Prescription Savings Service Empowers Consumers to Save Money, Time, Headaches

Experienced Pharmacists Provide Independent Medication Profile Reviews, Cost-Comparisons and Savings Solutions

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - November 10, 2009) - RX Savings Solutions today announced the launch of its prescription savings service, which specializes in identifying medication savings for consumers. Founded by board-certified, licensed pharmacist Michael Rea, PharmD, RX Savings Solutions distills extensive research and retail pharmacy pricing experience into medication profile recommendations. Most of the content -- including a monthly newsletter with savings tips, coupons and health information -- is free to the public.

"Our foremost goal is to educate and empower consumers to find alternatives to inflated prescription costs," said Rea. "We provide tools for proactive patients and physicians to reduce expenses responsibly. Customers are encouraged to discuss cost-saving solutions with their physicians."

Free tools include a Price Comparison Chart that lists costs on over 500 generic medications from CVS, Rite Aid, Target, Walgreens and Wal-Mart. Drugs included are updated regularly in more than 15 categories, including antibiotics, asthma, birth control, blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes.

For members of RX Savings Solutions, who pay $9.95 per month for direct access to board certified pharmacists, individualized medication profile reviews are also available. While anyone can benefit from a membership, RX Savings Solutions is ideal for:

-- Medicare Part D patients who fall into the premature "donut hole" of exhausted benefits.

-- Employer-paid health insurance recipients with inflated co-pay costs.

-- Underinsured/uninsured customers not capitalizing on prescription drug clubs and affordable generic drugs.

"No person, insured or not, should have to choose between protecting their health or wallet," said Rea. "In many cases, 'cash' prices are cheaper than co-pay prices. We are committed to identifying the lowest total cost for each unique customer."
