This is the improved version 3.0 of the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card app for iPhone.
You can now save medication lists for multiple people and quickly obtain drug prices for medications on that list.
You can have the prices along with the med card information emailed or sent as a text. Show the downloaded card image with the prices to the pharmacist to save up to 80% off the cost of your prescriptions. The discount also applies to over-the-counter medications and medical supplies (if the doctor writes a prescription) and pet prescription medications purchased at a pharmacy.
There are no fees or registration. It is active immediately and never expires. Anyone can use the card as there are no income, insurance, age, or residency requirements. Share the card with family and friends.
The card cannot be used in combination with insurance or federal or state programs, but it may be used in place of these programs if the savings is greater.
The card is accepted at over 65,000 pharmacies, including major and regional chains and local stores. Use the pharmacy search to find participating pharmacies near you.
Just show the card to the pharmacist and start saving.
This version adds more accurate pharmacy tracking and faster response times. Also adds distance calculation to the pharmacy results.

I saved 50% off of my pets medication!
Re: Single Use!!!
The pharmacy's data fields (on their computer) MUST be cleared before each use. The instructions are on the back of the card (2nd page " > " in-app). Some pharmacists & many technicians don't read the processing instructions, for a variety of reasons.
ALSO: Many pharmacies have their own "in-house" discount programs (Walgreens, Publix, etc.) and prefer to use their own rather than pay the small fee to NeedyMeds.
PS - I have been told that I'm not eligible to use a discount program because I have Medicare Part D. This is not entirely correct. I can't use a discount card "with" my other insurance. I can, however, use it "instead of" my insurance. It may have to be "rung up" as a separate purchase. I guess that some technicians/cashiers feel annoyed when I ask them to check both prices!
The Needy Meds discount card can be used multiple times- the reviewer who says otherwise is mistaken. The Needy Meds website, in addition to the discount card, also lists coupons for medications and THOSE are sometimes single-use but that is based on the conditions of each coupon and the drug company sponsoring it. Needy Meds also lists free and low cost health clinics and patient assistance programs. EXCELLENT website.
