The Hampton Roads community has saved nearly $100,000 in prescription drug costs using the ChamberRx program.
The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce launched the pharmacy discount program in April 2010, as an outreach to those in need of help with prescription costs. In 2011, approximately 2,000 people saved an average 45% for a total of more than $71,000. As of the first quarter this year, people have saved more than $20,000.
ChamberRx is not insurance. It is a discount prescription drug card available to anyone who need it. It works for those without insurance or as a supplement for those in the Medicare donut hole, those with high deductible health plans, and/or for those who need specific prescription drugs insurance may not cover.
Cards are available at the chamber office or at several hospital and office locations throughout Hampton Roads.
Offered through members SAVE, ChamberRx is a Pharmacy Discount Program that provides discounts for cardholders at certain participating pharmacies for drugs and other healthcare supplies.
