Human Arc to Provide Discount Drug Cards to Its L&S Client Hospitals' Uninsured Patients

LANSING, MI--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2012) - Human Arc, a leader in reimbursement and other revenue enhancement services for hospitals and health plans, has announced that, through its recently acquired L&S Associates company, it will provide free prescription discount cards to uninsured patients L&S screens in Michigan.

Expanding the free "RxDiscounts" prescription card program to L&S Associates, the leading supplier of Medicaid eligibility screening and enrollment service to Michigan hospitals, allows Human Arc another avenue to increase benefit to L&S client hospitals and their self-pay patients. L&S will begin including cards in information packets it supplies to uninsured Michigan hospital patients its staff screens for Medicaid and other program eligibility.

The card allows holders and family members up to 55% off generic and up to 15% off name brand prescription prices at 60,000 participating pharmacies across America. It has no renewal fees, expiration date or limit on frequency of use. 

Also important, the RxDiscounts card improves patients' incentives for medication regimen compliance, thus helping to reduce the need for readmissions and/or emergency medical treatment for those who don't purchase their prescribed medications. 

Already distributed by Human Arc months prior to its August 2012 L&S acquisition, the card has brought an average 37% savings on prescriptions to about 16,000 hospital patients in Ohio, Missouri and elsewhere.

"This is another way we expand value to our Michigan L&S customers and the people they serve, helping them achieve additional quality-of-life benefit," stated Jeff Markle, Human Arc President and Chief Operating Officer. "RxDiscounts cards can save each holder hundreds of dollars over a year's time and make the difference between purchasing prescribed medicines and not affording them."
