During the past years that I’ve been working in the Philippines, our company had provided us with a comprehensive medical benefits package. This covers our hospitalization expenses, purchase of medicines during the confinement period, and laboratory expenses. For out patient procedures, we get free consultation from the doctors at the duly accredited hospitals, but we have to purchase the medicines ourselves. In todays time, where the hospitalization expenses are really high and the cost of the medicines keep on rising, we have to think of the possible ways to save for emergencies especially during times of unexpected injuries or sickness. Some people resorted to getting a medical insurance while others opted to secure a health card. In some countries like the United States, there are even more options available like joining prescription savings club and one of which is Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens where you can enjoy the following benefits as a member:
Walgreens is offering a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club:
For $10 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 and younger and pets. Individuals may join for $5. Join and receive discount prices on your prescriptions.
Other benefits include:
-Savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications
-Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies
-Bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photo finishing services
You can visit Walgreens on Facebook for more details or you may want to check on Walgreens on Twitter for more relevant updates.
I guess, it is a smart move to avail of some opportunities like what is being offered at Walgreens. The huge discounts that can be obtained from your membership to the club can be converted to savings. More often, we do not know when health problems will arise but more importantly, while we are in our best condition, we also need to maintain our current state of health and for this, we also need to purchase some vitamins and get some flu shots or vaccines. You can also manage your prescriptions through this membership by setting up the auto refill prescriptions. This is applicable for those who are taking medicines for health maintenance on a regular basis.
Health and wellness is everybody’s concern and this, I believe shall be given an utmost priority. We work hard to earn money for ourselves and for the family, thus, we have to focus more on our health. After all, who doesn’t want to live longer? We can very well achieve this by leading a healthy life style and I am just thinking, why do we need to spend more if we can be healthy and frugal at the same time.
