Together Rx Access Launches Redesigned Website

Enhances Availability of Information on Prescription Savings Programs; Adds Resources About Healthcare Access Options

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) - In a changing healthcare environment, many Americans need help navigating healthcare options and understanding how they and their families can best access resources to help them take better care of their health. Together Rx Access®, a prescription savings program sponsored by many of the nation's leading pharmaceutical companies, has significantly redesigned its website -- TogetherRxAccess.com -- to better connect people to valuable health information and resources. 

Visitors to TogetherRxAccess.com can continue to determine eligibility and immediately enroll in the Together Rx Access prescription savings program. In addition, they can now access resources that can help them learn how healthcare reform may impact them and their families, uncover ways to better manage chronic conditions, and connect with others who are also striving to maintain healthy habits. The website also allows healthcare professionals and other community leaders to order Together Rx Access materials and contribute content to the site by authoring articles and guest columns.

"In our conversations with uninsured individuals, healthcare professionals, patient advocates, and our cardholders, we are frequently asked for more information and resources about access to healthcare -- in addition to prescription savings," said Roba Whiteley, executive director of Together Rx Access. "By redesigning our website to include valuable health resources, such as links to healthcare reform information, podcasts of health tips, and guest columns by health experts, we are responding to this need and helping people take better care of their health."

TogetherRxAccess.com continues to offer key information about the prescription savings program that cardholders have come to rely on including: eligibility requirements, online enrollment, pharmacy locator, and a list of brand-name prescription medicines and products included in the Program.

Programs like Together Rx Access can help eligible uninsured people access the medicines they need while they wait for healthcare reform to be implemented. This is critical as results from a recent consumer poll showed that nearly half (44 percent) of the uninsured may delay seeking health insurance coverage while waiting for healthcare reform.*
