Will I ever pay more using the card than I would without the card?

No, cardholders will always pay the lower of Elixir Saving’s Free Prescription Drug Card contract price or the pharmacy’s usual and customary price.

How is pricing for prescription drugs determined?

Elixir Saving’s Free Prescription Drug Card provides savings on both generic and name brand prescriptions. It allows for unlimited use by the participant and his/her family. Prescription drug costs vary by pharmacy due to differences in both retail and wholesale prices for their products. When the pharmacy’s usual and customary charge (retail price) is lower than the Elixir Savings card discounted price, participants will always pay the lower price.

Are there any restrictions because of age or current medical conditions?

There are no restrictions due to age or any health conditions you may have.

Can anyone in my immediate family use my ID card?

Yes.

Will my medical information be kept private?

Elixir Savings has no access to private medical information. Only the providers have that information.

Do I have to pay at the time of service?

Yes, you must pay the provider once you’ve received the prescription. Participating pharmacies have an agreement that they will not bill the participant for the difference between their usual fee and the reduced fee.

Can I use this card if I have insurance?

Yes, but only in the following circumstances and you should ask your pharmacist whether using the card would save you money:

  • The drug is not covered under your insurance plan
  • You have a cap on coverage that has been exceeded such that all future prescription costs in the plan year must be paid at 100%
  • You have a high annual deductible that you don’t believe you will reach given a low monthly prescription drug expense (e.g. $500 deductible with a monthly drug cost of $15)
  • You have a high co-pay which exceeds the cost of the prescription if you used the Elixir Savings card (e.g. $10 co-pay for all prescriptions but a drug that is $7 when the card is used vs. insurance)

Can I use the card if I am on Medicare, especially when I enter the “doughnut hole” in my coverage?

You should not use the card for Medicare covered prescriptions as the coverage obtained through Medicare should be more advantageous. However, if the drug is not covered as part of your plan and you typically would pay full retail cost for the prescription, the card can be used.

Can I use the card if I am not a legal citizen of the United States?

Yes, Elixir Savings does not need any personal information about you except your name.

What if I have more questions?

If you still have questions or need additional information, please contact us by email at savingscard@elixirsolutions.com.
