COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As a value-added alternative to the continually rising cost of insulins and anti-allergy medication EpiPen, Prescription Hope is working directly with individuals to access these vital medications for only $35 per month per medication.

"The high cost of prescription medication is putting a burden on everybody, including insurance groups, self-insured groups, and employers who provide benefit packages," said Douglas K. Pierce, President and Chief Executive Officer of Prescription Hope. "Through partnership with our unique program, individuals can still receive the name-brand, FDA approved prescription medications straight from the pharmaceutical companies' pharmacy for a price they can afford."
The rising price of both EpiPen packs and select insulins have forced Americans to make difficult decisions about their personal health. Over the last decade, the price of an EpiPen 2-Pak has increased over 600 percent, with the average consumer cost over $600 with a discount drug card.
Insulins have not been immune from this price increase as well. According to the diaTribe Foundation, many popular brands of insulin, including Humulin R, Levemir, and Lantus have increased in price dramatically over the years. The latest price research by Prescription Hope discovered the current price of these insulins between $140 and over $300 per vial with a discount drug card.
Unlike a discount drug card or mail-order pharmacy, which have inconsistent prices for medications, Prescription Hope can obtain EpiPen and insulin prescriptions for the set price of $35 per month, per medication. To do this, our highly-trained team works directly with the pharmaceutical companies to order, manage, track and refill medications on behalf of individuals across the country. There are no other costs, fees, or charges associated with the medication or the Prescription Hope service. Moreover, many Americans may receive their prescription medications through Prescription Hope: The average income to qualify for the Prescription Hope pharmacy program for an individual is around $30,000 per year; for a couple the average income is around $50,000 per year and guidelines increase with each additional member in households earning up to $100,000 per year.
As a value-added partner to insurance brokers, health care systems, benefit program managers, and associations, Prescription Hope works seamlessly to cut down the cost of high priced medications, passing the value directly onto the customer. Through adding their program, organizations have been able to retain more members every year and attract new customers. In addition, their team is trusted by some of the biggest medical systems in the country, including the Cleveland Clinic and Henry Ford Health Systems.
"Through the power of partnership, we can continue to keep those we care about healthy and well without making dangerous sacrifices to their health," Pierce said. "I am excited to personally invite any group who is experiencing difficulty in affording their medication to join with our program."
