Prescription Discount Cards - To Use or Not to Use

Today every household is seeking ways to make their funds stretch.  One area where this is vitally important is when it comes to purchasing medications. If you are like most individuals, you have either received what are slated as discount prescription cards unsolicited in the mail or have had someone walk up to you offering you one. So, the questions that should come to mind is -"are the cards legitimate and will they really save me and my family money? Take a look at what patient advocate Trisha Torrey has to say on the topic "Discount Prescription Drug Cards - Saving Money on Prescription Drugs".     Be an informed consumer, in other words, DO YOUR RESEARCH!  Read the fine print to determine if the card will be of benefit to your situation and NEVER cancel your health insurance because these cards are NOT health insurance, merely a DISCOUNT card for purchase of medications.
