Immediate continues its dedication to employee wellness by enabling users to save money on prescription medications directly through the ImmediatePay app
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Nov. 10, 2020 – Immediate, a financial wellness company, today announced a new partnership with ScriptSave WellRx to provide discounts on prescriptions directly from the ImmediatePay app. The functionality is a new money-saving offering within the suite of financial wellness tools Immediate provides, including earned wage access, budgeting tools, and more. Users will be able to quickly access savings from the prescription drug discount program by presenting their member card within the app upon checkout at any participating pharmacy.
ScriptSave WellRx negotiates discounts on drug prices with pharmacies nationwide, providing reduced prices on thousands of prescription drugs, including pet medications. Immediate users can access these discounted prices by simply showing their member card within the ImmediatePay app when checking out at the pharmacy counter. ScriptSave WellRx is accepted nationwide at more than 65,000 pharmacies, with an average savings of 60% and in some cases 80% off the retail drug price.
“We admire what Immediate is doing to advance financial wellness for employees across the U.S.,” said Marcus Sredzinski, PharmD, executive vice president and chief operating officer for ScriptSave WellRx. “The economic challenges that people may be facing due to the pandemic has made it more important than ever to give them opportunities to save money on the things they need and purchase regularly. We’re proud to offer our savings directly to Immediate users from within the ImmediatePay app.”
“For employees with limited insurance or no prescription coverage, we can help significantly reduce out-of-pocket costs,” said Debbie Payne vice president, sales and account management at ScriptSave WellRx. “And for those with health insurance, be it Medicare or a high deductible health plan, we can reduce the cost of medications not covered by their insurance, or even help them find a lower price than their insurance copay.”
While individual cost savings will vary by each prescription drug, Immediate users will be able to instantly access a lower price drug price at the checkout counter. ScriptSave WellRx has saved consumers more than $10 billion dollars in prescription costs over the last 25 years.
“As a financial wellness company our focus is to help customers make better financial choices,” said Matt Pierce, Immediate founder and CEO. “Healthcare costs can make up significant ongoing expenditures. It’s important to us to provide our users with tools that will help them focus on making healthy financial decisions, and ScriptSave WellRx does exactly that. We evaluated different competitors in the market and ScriptSave’s robust platform and competitive discounted price offerings were clearly the best choice. We’re very excited for this partnership and the ability to offer these savings to our users.”
