What is the USPD card?
USPD program is a pharmacy discount program. Pre-activated, FREE and ready to use immediately,these cards
can help you save up to 75% on all your prescription medications. With discounts on virtually every
medication sold at every pharmacy nationwide, the USPD card saves families an average of $300. There
are absolutely NO FEES to use these cards and you will never be charged for them.
How can the USPD help?
The percentages of people who are uninsured and underinsured in the U.S. are currently at a record high.
With millions of people lacking coverage to purchase prescription medications, many are forced to pay
out-of-network prices. The USPD card provides users with savings of up to 75%, providing them
with relief from the already high and continually rising costs of prescription medications. The card also
complements existing insurance. While our program helps the uninsured and underinsured, no policy can
cover every medication all the time. However, our card does, so even those with comprehensive
insurance plans can benefit from the USPD card.
How do I get a discount?
Bring your USPD card along with your prescription to the pharmacy and present it when you pay for
your prescriptions. If your pharmacist isn't familiar with our prescription medication discount program,
please have him or her call 1-877-207-6785, toll-free.
Where do these discounts come from?
We have millions of customers in our network who purchase tens of millions of prescriptions. That's
buying power, and all it adds up into savings for you. Every time a customer uses an USPD card to save
on a prescription, we receive a standardized fee though the pharmacy benefit management system. Because the USPD card is not insurance, it's FREE. People who use our program can save on average nearly
50% off the retail price.
Are you a Discount Medical Program (DMPO)?
No, we are neither a Discount Medical Program nor are we a medical insurance company. Our program
is not insurance. We are not designed to replace your medical insurance.
What type of discounts can I expect?
Discounts vary based on the type of prescription. Discounts can range up to 75% off the retail price, but
the average discount is nearly 50%. THe average price for a generic prescription medication is just $21.
Can I get a discount at my pharmacy?
Yes, virtually every pharmacy accepts our discounts. To see a list of pharmacies that accept the USPD
card, please visit our home page.
What if my pharmacist does not know what to do with the card or print-out?
If your pharmacist isn't familiar with our prescription drug discounts, please have him or her call
1-877-207-6785, toll-free. Every print-out and card has this customer service number on it.
Our pharmacist helpline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will assist your pharmacist with the
What if the discount I receive is different than what I expected?
This may happen, since drug prices differ by drug store and location. To avoid surprises, please ask your
pharmacist for the exact discount that you will receive before you purchase a prescription.
Do I need to register or pay for this service?
No, this is a FREE program. There are no restrictions for pre-existing conditions and you do not need to fill
out any paperwork. It is available to all U.S. residents and is only available for use at pharmacies in the U.S.
What happens when I use my card or print-out?
When you bring your card or print-out to your local pharmacy, your pharmacy will input your
information into its computer. Once the information has been stored by the pharmacist, each time you
return to the pharmacy, you will be eligible to get a discount.
Can I use this discount with my current insurance?
If you have insurance, you should bring both your insurance and USPD card or print-out to your
pharmacist and ask which gives you the better discount. Our program is not designed to add discounts to
discounts you are already receiving from your current provider, nor is it designed to reduce your co-pay.
If you have an insurance plan that is affordable,do not drop the plan. Please keep in mind that many
insurance programs do not cover drugs for which we provide discounts.
What if I don't have a printer?
If you can't print the USPD card, you can write down the member ID, GRP, BIN, and PCN information
from your temporary card and take them to your pharmacist for the same exact savings. Additionally,
when you fill out this request form
we will send you a plastic card that you can take to the pharmacy to
save on your prescriptions.
Does using this program count toward my insurance deductible?
If you have health insurance: If you have a deductible, the purchases you make using this program will
almost certainly not count toward your deductible. Of course, we suggest you contact your insurance
company to get the specifics, because not all insurance plans are the same.
If you have an HSA or HRA plan: If you have a deductible, and our discounts or card reduce the costs of
your prescriptions, using our program will most likely count towards your deductible, but it will take you
longer to reach your full deductible (if you reach it at all). Of course, we suggest you contact your HSA
or HRA provider to get the specifics, because not all plans are the same.
Again, if you have health coverage of any kind, we suggest you contact your plan administrator to get
the specifics, because not all plans are the same. Healthcare Alliance and the USPD card are not insurance.
I have unused medications, how should I dispose of them?
Most drugs can be thrown in the household trash, but consumers should take certain precautions before
tossing them out, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A few drugs should be flushed
down the toilet. And a growing number of community-based "take-back" programs offer another safe

Important note for Medicare users
Although this discount can be used as a Medicare Part D supplement by covering drugs once participants
reach the "donut hole," drugs purchased with this discount program will not count toward your Medicare
deductible and therefore will not allow you to exceed your deductible and get out of the "donut hole."
We suggest you contact your plan administrator to get the specifics, because not all plans are the same.
