“Save money on your prescriptions with Georgia Drug Card”

[Expand/Collapse]

(Albany, GA) – As the American population ages, the cost of healthcare has skyrocketed. The cost of prescription drugs rose by an average of 11 per cent per year between 1996 and 2008. Kemberley Floyd has been a pharmacist for about five years. She's noticed the trend as well. She said, "they have probably more than doubled, if not tripled."

And for people whose health depend on monthly medications, tough decisions must be made.

Dr. Jaza Marina Brown from the South Albany Medical Center said, "oftentimes people have to make quick decisions...is it going to be my mortgage, my rent or the medication for my diabetes."

People like Sonia Coxwell."There's medication that I take for migraine headaches," she said. That medicine is not cheap."For like nine tablets is a little over $200," she said.

Even though she has insurance, it didn't cover the entire cost. And all over Georgia there are thousands of people who don't even have insurance, especially in rural areas. But while the costs of prescriptions can cause financial hardship, there are ways that you can save the next time that you come to the pharmacy. Coxwell's solution was to sign up for what's known as the 340-B drug program. It's available to anyone who goes to a community health care clinic. And it's taken a bite out of those high drug bills. "With my medication it cuts it in half," she said.

It's one of several programs that can help to save some money on prescriptions. Another one is known as the Georgia Drug Card. Like the 340-B program everyone is eligible, regardless of insurance coverage or income. Floyd has noticed that both programs have a definite effect on her patients. Where they used to skip a dose now and then: "now we have a patient that can walk in the door with a 30 day supply, get all 30 tablets, take them on a daily basis," she said.

Making sure that patients follow their doctor's orders when it comes to their medicines is the best way to make sure that they truly get healed from what ails them. And if they do that, then there will be a brighter future for them and their loved ones.

“Program Helps Pay for Medications”

[Expand/Collapse]

The News and Farmer - The Jefferson Reporter (October 2014)

John Cenerazzo directs a program that helps people pay for prescription drugs. Cenerazzo said the program, Georgia Drug Card, assists people without prescription coverage, people who have insurance but need medications not covered and people who have insurance with high deductibles.

Using the card reduces the amount customers owe the pharmacy.

“Throughout the month of October for every person who uses the Georgia Drug Card a donation is being made to the Breast Cancer Society,” Cenerazzo said.

“This is the second year that we’ve done this program. We had a lot of success with it. Last year, we were able to raise $1,200. We’d like to do it every year,” he said.

Improving breast cancer awareness is an issue close to Cenerazzo.

“It’s kind of a personal matter. I have a relative who had breast cancer and is a survivor,” he said, adding this touches him personally.

“My aunt had breast cancer and is a survivor. Through this program I was actually able to help her afford her medications,” he said.

This personal connection with a breast cancer patient and survivor gave him the idea to work with the Breast Cancer Society.

Cenerazzo said his program’s mission goes hand in hand with the Breast Cancer Society’s mission.

“They’re out there to help others who need assistance. Our mission aligns with theirs. Our mission is to provide prescription assistance to Georgians in need, help them afford the medications that they need,” he said.

Georgia Drug Card launched in conjunction with the Medical Association of Georgia in 2010.

Cenerazzo said they launched the program as an initiative to help people in the state who otherwise could not afford their medicines.

“We’re with well over 56,000 pharmacies nationwide. Both chains and independents accept our program. The usage will transfer over to another state; but, the program was launched for residents in Georgia,” he said.

Georgians can visit the program’s website at www.georgiadrugcard.com to get a card or visit a CVS pharmacy.

Cenerazzo said anyone without access to the internet can still use the program.

“We have a preferred pharmacy; and, that is CVS,” he said. Georgia residents without internet access or a printer can use CVS for to fill their prescriptions without having to use a hard card.

“We are working with the Medical Association of Georgia to create more distribution sites throughout the state. You can request complimentary hard card by sending me an email at johnc@georgiadrugcard.com or by calling me directly,” Cenerazzo said. His number is 404-630-4500.

“We are actually funded through the participation of pharmaceutical companies. We are not a state-funded program. We receive a small revenue from usage that comes down line from our program administrator, which is RESTAT, Cenerazzo said.

“Our program is completely confidential. We don’t see any customer information. We don’t collect any customer information,” he said.

“Free Prescription Drug Card Launched in Georgia”

[Expand/Collapse]

(Atlanta, GA) – Georgia residents now have access to a free prescription assistance program. The statewide prescription drug card program, called Georgia Drug Card, is scheduled to officially commence today. Georgia Drug Card is being launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents of Georgia gain access to significant savings on prescription medications.

Georgia residents can download a "FREE" card, search drug pricing, and locate participating pharmacies by visiting www.georgiadrugcard.com. Residents can also obtain cards at various health centers, hospitals, clinics, businesses, and other card distribution sites that are being set up across the state. The cards are accepted at more than 50,000 pharmacies across the country. Anyone not able to access the website, or otherwise obtain a member card, can visit any CVS/pharmacy in Georgia to have their prescription processed through the program.

"This program is going to be an important tool to help the residents of Georgia offset the rising costs of prescription medications," states Georgia Drug Card Asst. V.P., John Cenerazzo. "The launch of this program couldn't have come at a better time as the struggling U.S. economy continues to leave more and more people without jobs and benefits."

The program has already received support from organizations like The Medical Association of Georgia (MAG). MAG President Gary C. Richet, M.D. says "The Georgia Drug Card is ideal for people that either don't have health insurance or who have health insurance coverage with no prescription drug benefits," Dr. Richter says, adding, "And that's fairly commonplace with a lot of today's health savings accounts and other high-deductible health plans. We see this as a simple and cost-effective way to help our patients get the prescriptions they need." MAG was formed in 1849 and with more than 5,000 members is the leading organization for physicians in Georgia.

Georgia Drug Card is a simple solution to the confusing maze of discount programs that have appeared in recent years. Many of these programs only cover certain drugs, charge fees, and some have membership restrictions such as age and income requirements. Georgia Drug Card is open to all residents and is easy to use. Furthermore, this program is also open to anyone currently working for Georgia based companies even if they are located out of State.

“Free prescription discount card promises to save on drug costs”

[Expand/Collapse]

(Augusta, GA) – You don't need much to qualify for a new prescription discount card. If you live in Georgia, just a name and an email address.

Just print the card and you have it. You can even compare prices of your prescriptions at local pharmacies.

"It's free to all residents. It covers all medications. It discounts as high as 75 percent," says spokesman John Cenezarro.

The average savings is 30 percent. The discount is funded by some pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies.

"You're going to pay the lowest price for that prescription medication, whatever the lowest price is for the pharmacy, that's what you're going to pay," he said.

That's for all kinds of prescriptions, including those not covered by insurance. The card is geared toward the uninsured and under-insured.

"Even if you can't find a use for the prescription side on the back of the card, you can find use for all the additional savings that are attached to the program," Cenezarro adds.

That includes smoking cessation drugs, eyeglasses, even teeth whitening, vitamins, and diabetic supplies.

But some pharmacists are skeptical, saying they're already offering drugs at lower prices than you can get with the card. It's not the only card of its kind out there. And as of today, not all pharmacies know about it.

Said Cenezarro: "I think there's 1,400 pharmacies in Georgia. That's a lot of pharmacies for one person to visit."

In 2003, the Government Accountability Office found that savings depends on the pharmacy you go to and the type of card used. That study found savings between 2 and 21 dollars per prescription for people who have Medicare only.

If you want to check pricing per person, per pharmacy, you actually have to fill the prescription.

DeKalb residents can now join other Georgians in free participation in a new program which gives access to the lowest prices possible for prescriptions.

Pharmacies began offering the statewide prescription drug card program, titled Georgia Drug Card, on July 14. The program has given state residents savings from 30 to 75 percent, said Brian Oliver, senior vice president of program administrator United Networks of America.

More than 104,000 users have seen $1.4 million in savings since the program was introduced in its "soft launch" phase on Oct. 1, said Ryan Jumonville, president and CEO of United Networks of America.

The Georgia program has proven more popular than the other 39 states it is available, he said.

"We have had a lot of support from the physician community," Jumonville said.

The program provides cardholders the lowest plan price on prescriptions at participating pharmacies. Medication pricing and discounts are calculated on the plans' lowest negotiated contract price and the pharmacy's "usual and customary" price.

Medical Association of Georgia is a key supporter, he said.

Medical Association of Georgia President Gary C. Richter, M.D., said the Georgia Drug Card is ideal for people who either don't have health insurance or have health insurance coverage with no prescription drug benefits.

"And that's fairly commonplace with a lot of today's health savings accounts and other high-deductible health plans," Richter said in a prepared release. "We see this as a simple and cost-effective way to help our patients get the prescriptions they need."

The card is accepted at more than 50,000 pharmacies nationwide. It is sponsored by pharmacies nationwide.

Most major pharmacies offer the program. Participants can go online, visit www.georgiadrugcard.com, and download the card, search drug pricing, and locate participating pharmacies.

Those who choose not to use a computer to access the program can obtain cards at most major pharmacy chains and hospitals. Even without a card, participants can go to any CVS pharmacy and their prescription will be processed through the program on request.

“Warrick Dunn Family Foundation Rewards Three Single-Parent Families in Honor of Labor Day”

[Expand/Collapse]

(Dade City, FL) – The Warrick Dunn Family Foundation (WD-FF), a public charity serving single-parent families in Atlanta, Ga., Baton Rouge, La., Tallahassee and Tampa, Fla., rewarded three single mothers and their eight children for achieving financial independence by becoming first-time homebuyers through its Homes for the Holidays (HFTH) program on Tuesday morning.

In honor of the recent Labor Day holiday, the three homes were completely furnished with linens, bedding, fully stocked kitchens and home decor, made possible by a $75,000 donation from Dunn's former teammate, Ryan Jumonville and his company, United Networks of America. Included in Jumonville's donation, a $5,000 down payment was provided to each homebuyer through a grant made to Habitat for Humanity of East and Central Pasco, the homebuilder and lender for all three homes. In addition, Toshiba Business Solutions sponsored the family's home offices.

Linda Hambrick and her three children were thrilled to find Warrick Dunn in the front yard of their new home. The Hambrick family soon realized that their home, rehabbed by Habitat for Humanity of East and Central Pasco, was completely furnished with furniture from Aaron's Inc. (NSE: AAN), the program's corporate partner. In addition, Jumonville's donation assisted with $10,000 in complete home furnishings and $5,000 down payment assistance, drastically lowering Hambrick's monthly mortgage payments.

In tears, Hambrick, said, "My kids don't have to say that we have to pack again and they will have their own rooms."

Immediately following the Hambrick family's home presentation, Dunn and supporters traveled around the corner to reward Ramona Atkins and her two children who also became HFTH recipients Tuesday morning. Atkins and her children have been living in a small, two-bedroom apartment in need of repairs, where the two children shared a bedroom with twin beds and barely enough space to walk. Hambrick was speechless when she saw Dunn standing at the end of her driveway.

Once inside the home, her son, Christopher, could not contain himself when he opened the door to his new amphibian themed room, exclaiming, "I don't just like it, I love it!"

Warrick Dunn, former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, started the HFTH program in 1997 to honor his late mother's dream of homeownership. Betty Smothers, a Baton Rouge police officer, was killed while working an after-hours security shift when Dunn was an 18-year-old high school senior.

"Changing lives has been a passion of mine since I lost my mom. These three mothers have worked hard to provide a secure home for their families and they deserve to be rewarded and set up for success as a homeowner," said Dunn about the HFTH program.

As the Atkins family's home presentation came to an end, Dunn walked next door to reward a single mother of two. Soporro Burns and her two children have been homeless while their Habitat home was being built. Burns, who is self-employed, has proven herself determined to give her children a safe and stable home environment, completing over 400 sweat equity hours as a family.

"We are confident that these families will continue to succeed and we are happy to support them in their endeavors," said Neal Weldon, Regional Manager for Aaron's Inc.

To date, WD-FF and its sponsors have rewarded 107 single parents and 286 children in Atlanta, Ga., Baton Rouge, La., and Tallahassee and Tampa, Fla. for achieving the American Dream of purchasing their first home.

“More Georgians Have Access to Prescription Savings”

[Expand/Collapse]

Statewide Prescription Assistance Program Offers a Prescription to High Healthcare Costs

The Centers for Disease Control reports that Americans spend more on prescription drugs than people in any other country: some $45 billion in out-of-pocket dollars in the last year alone. With that in mind, the Georgia Drug Card is reminding physicians that their patients who aren't insured or who take prescription drugs that aren't covered by their health insurance plans, can use the Georgia Drug Card to obtain discounts of up to 80 percent off the retail price for brand and generic FDA-approved medications.

Medical Association of Georgia has been working closely with Georgia Drug Card to distribute free discount prescription cards to all Georgians. The goal of the partnership is to provide additional card distribution channels and create awareness so that all residents will have access to this free statewide prescription assistance program. Georgia Drug Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents afford their prescription medications. The program can also be used by people that have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans.

"We believe that the Georgia Drug Card is an easy and innovative way to help patients afford the medications they need," explained Donald Palmisano Jr., CEO of MAG.

Another unique component of the program is their preferred pharmacy option. Georgia Drug Card has chosen CVS/pharmacy as their preferred pharmacy so that residents who don't have access to a computer and can't obtain a hard card, can visit any CVS/pharmacy to have their prescriptions processed through Georgia Drug Card. Residents can simply reference "Georgia Drug Card" to have their prescription processed through the program. Georgia Drug Card is accepted at over 56,000 participating regional and national pharmacies.

"We strongly believe that this is an easy and innovative way to help the residents of Georgia find affordable prescription options," states Program Director, John A. Cenerazzo III.

Georgia Drug Card has helped residents save over $43 million since its inception in July 2010. You can help by encouraging your patients to print a free Georgia Drug Card at www.GeorgiaDrugCard.com. Georgia Drug Card is also available as an app for iPhone and Android. You can search "Free Rx iCard" in the app store. Any physicians who are interested in ordering free cards for their clinic/hospital can email John A. Cenerazzo III, Program Director, at johnc@georgiadrugcard.com .
