BLACKSTONE NOW OFFERS PREPAID (Rx) PRESCRIPTION DISCOUNT CARDS
Blackstone (www.blackstoneonline.com), a pioneer of the prepaid telecommunications industry, will now be offering the most recent product in the prepaid category - prepaid (Rx) prescription discount cards.
According to Janet Sancho, Blackstone’s director of business development, “This is an ideal product for our merchants as the target market for this product is not only the traditional prepaid consumer, but also those consumers without insurance or without prescription drug coverage, such as the unemployed, budget conscious, college students and the elderly”.
The low priced prepaid (Rx) prescription discount card can be purchased for only $9.95 and is good for 60 days of household prescription drug coverage, plus diabetic supplies, diabetic devices and insulin on prescription. Consumers can save up to 40% on all prescriptions at over 50,000 pharmacies nationwide. Services are to be provided through PSDT and NPAX, who for the past six years have helped consumers save millions annually on their prescription costs.
“Initially, we will begin rolling out this product via e-PIN delivery using the Blackstone POS and The Prepaid One Stop, our self-service interactive kiosk. In approximately 4-6 weeks, we will begin offering the prepaid prescription discount product in the traditional hanging card format. At the same time, at $9.95 retail, the discount card is priced so that any consumer who needs coverage can afford it”, adds Sancho.
