During a meeting with board members last week, we discussed Veterans health care. As we read more about the presumptive maladies associated with military service from the Agent Orange Committee of VVA and the “Have You Ever Served” initiative of the American Academy of Nursing, our attention turns to those drugs used in the treatment of these maladies. And, how does our prescription drug discount program cover these drugs?
Gilotrif is one of many special drugs used for fast spreading cancer treatments. It is extraordinarily expensive. But after some digging, we discovered that our plan could save a Veteran cancer patient thousands of dollars just in one month. Using our Veterans Advantage prescription drug discount, we found a one-month supply of 20 mg tablets costs about $6,000 at two of the leading national pharmacy chains. Pretty pricey, right, but we did confirm this month’s supply lists for about $12,500 without the discount – a 50% savings.
Your Veterans Advantage Prescription Drug discount plan is just one benefit included in your Prepaid Benefits Plan – which comes to you with your Veterans Advantage plan membership. All the major prescription drugs – including generics – are covered. If you need help with your Rx costs, I encourage you to check it out today.
