USArx is a company that seems to act as a middleman between consumers and affordable medicines. To use them as a resource, the customer must sign up to get a free discount card. USArx is not affiliated with insurance, so any customer, regardless of preexisting conditions. After the user signs up and receives their discount card, they may take that card to one of the 60,000 pharmacies that accepts the card.
The way it works is that USArx gets wholesale prices on the medications by negotiating with managers of pharmaceutical benefits. When the customer brings their authorized discount card to one of the participating pharmacies, the discount is applied. Is discount card is free and is available to print immediately. The card may save the customer anywhere from 10% to 75%.
The site is easy to navigate and has sections on the website for individuals, employers, seniors, and organizations. At the bottom of the website, it shares the logos of a few of the major name pharmacies that accept the discount card. The address at the bottom of the website says the company operates out of New York City. There is a link to the company’s Facebook page. The page does have 2,327 “likes” but has very little customer interaction.
USArx.com Reviews 2015
There is no place on the USArx website to see customer reviews or testimonials. LegitScript.com does not have any record of this website being reviewed, but scamadvisor.com gives USArx a Low Trust rating. This may be because the owner of the company uses and anonymous service for the site. This may just be to prevent spam. It does report that USArx has received negative feedback from other sites, but does not link those reviews.
On the company’s Facebook page, there is one post to the page that isn’t exactly a review, but it is from a customer saying that the discount card really does work.
USArx is a discount program itself. It does not sell items or have any links to purchase items through them.
There seems to be no risk in signing up on this website for their discount card. The customer does not purchase anything directly from USArx, so they are not providing the company with any extremely sensitive information. You provide nothing more than your first name, last name, and email address. From there, to receive a medication, you take the discount card and prescription to one of the pharmacies that accept the discount card.
USArx receives a 3 out of 5 stars from here. The concept is great, and there is very low risk to the consumer. It would receive a higher star rating if there were actual examples, reviews, or testimonials from real customers. This company could either be a giant waste of time for someone trying to get a pharmacy to accept their discount card, or it may be a way to provide savings for a costly prescription. There is just no proof either way.
