“Ok, I’ll be sending Augmentin and Zofran to the pharmacy for you. I want you to follow up with your Primary Care Provider in one week.”
“Thank you… I’m sorry, but do you know how much that might cost?”
The cost of healthcare often takes even me by surprise. There isn’t always an affordable way out when diagnosed with certain conditions. Despite the rising cost of prescription drugs, increasing the popularity of alternative treatments, and healthier lifestyles becoming more trendy, the need to see a medical professional hasn’t changed. Fortunately, there is a free membership card that can help alleviate some of the financial burdens.

Who is Singlecare for?
You might be wondering if Singlecare is even worth a second glance if you already have health insurance. Whether you are insured with a high deductible or completely uninsured, you can use Singlecare to fill gaps in your coverage. Those with high deductibles don’t have to worry about paying full price for their generic meds — just present your coupon and save up to 80%. Would you like to know how easy it is? Scroll down to see how to take advantage of the Singlecare App. Even with health insurance, Singlecare’s discount prescription pricing may be lower than some of your current prescription copays.
For an urgent care visit, uninsured patients may pay upwards of $140 to be seen while a Singlecare video call may run around $45.
My Take On Singlecare
I love that this program has a free membership. It only took a minute to become a member, and I could immediately start using the savings for a prescription or an appointment. I now have a resource to recommend to my family, friends, and readers that can help save them money on healthcare costs. The app is pretty convenient and responsive, a definite plus. Before leaving a Doctor’s appointment, a patient can check the price of their prescription before they get to the pharmacy.
