Consumers Save $1.6 Million on Prescriptions with PatientPoint and National Prescription Savings Network

Partnership offers savings at doctor offices nationwide

February 24, 2016

CINCINNATI — PatientPoint, the trusted leader in patient education and engagement at the point of care, delivered more than $1.6 million in prescription savings to patients in 2015 through a partnership with ScriptRelief, the company behind the National Prescription Savings Network (NPSN) discount card. These prescription discount cards are distributed by PatientPoint and were used on more than 15,000 prescription purchases last year.

PatientPoint utilized its network of more than 750 hospitals and 31,000 doctor offices nationwide to place the ScriptRelief National Prescription Savings Network (NPSN) card in exam rooms and waiting areas. The complimentary cards provide savings on all FDA-approved prescription medications, and are accepted at most national pharmacies. The cards are pre-activated and no registration is required for use. Cardholders simply present the card to the pharmacist every time they fill a prescription at their local pharmacy.

"Our mission to create meaningful patient education is not limited simply to medical knowledge; we want patients to achieve the best outcome physically, mentally and even financially," said Tom McGuinness, chief executive officer, PatientPoint. "Our partnership with ScriptRelief has provided tremendous relief from the cost of prescription medication by making discounts available where and when patients need them most."

While patients enjoy the savings the cards deliver, doctors applaud the card for its ability to help patients adhere to a prescribed medication regimen.

"I am pleased that our pharmacy discount cards have helped PatientPoint satisfy its mission to aid both patients and caregivers," said Rich Vogel, COO and co-founder of ScriptRelief, LLC. "The savings the NPSN card provides can be the difference between people securing the medication they need and people going without. This partnership is facilitating the former and for that I am grateful."
