Pharmacy Discount Cards Used by VFW Members on
More Than 235,000 Prescription Purchases


New York, NY, June 17, 2015 — ScriptRelief has announced that its Healthcare Alliance Card has helped members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization save more than $4,000,000 on prescription medications. The VFW first offered the pharmacy discount card to members in November of 2012. Since then, the discount card has been mailed to more than 1.3 million VFW and VFW family members and the savings tool is available on the VFW’s website at www.vfw.org

“Our organization is dedicated to providing assistance to veterans however we can, and the pharmacy discount card is one of our most popular medical services benefits,” said John Hamilton, adjutant general of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. “Veterans face many challenges in regard to health care and we’re proud to help alleviate burdens wherever we can.” 

The complimentary cards provide veterans with discounts on FDA-approved prescription medications sold at numerous pharmacies including Costco, Publix, Rite Aid, Target, Walgreens and Walmart. The cards are pre-activated and no registration is required for use. Cardholders simply present the card to the pharmacist when filling a prescription at their local pharmacy. 

The Healthcare Alliance Card is part of a group of prescription savings tools powered by ScriptRelief. While discounts vary based on the prescriptions being filled, ScriptRelief reports that the average discount provided by its cards is almost 50 percent. 

“It is highly gratifying to learn that the Healthcare Alliance Card is providing a meaningful benefit to veterans across the country,” said Rich Vogel, COO and co-founder of Script Relief, LLC. “We value our relationship with the VFW, and we’re thrilled that we are able to help veterans save money on the medications they need.” 

The Healthcare Alliance Card is free to veterans, and cardholder information is never sold or rented to a third party. The cardholder’s information is fully protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA.)
