As a private practice owner who is self-insured and without prescription drug coverage, the cost of any medication can be a scary addition to my monthly expenses. I also often here my patients
express worry that they may not be able to afford a prescribed medication. For both these
reasons, I was happy to discover and recommend DPS (Discount Prescription Sourcing) to my
patients. This is not a pharmacy, but a Florida based business that has been providing a safe
alternative from the high cost of medications.
DPS believes that most companies would like to provide a comprehensive prescription plan, but
with the growing cost of co-pays and the elimination of some medications from Prescription
Drug Plans, this is no longer fiscally possible. DPS can be a cost saving solution to this problem.
Our Membership Program can be a standalone option or a supplement to current health care
packages, support wellness benefits, and act as part of a severance package. This program is no
cost to the employee or employer, and can be used by extended family members and friends
associate to the employee.
According to the "New York Times," about 30 percent of Americans help their parents out
financially. This assistance can range from casual loans as needed to the elderly parent living
with and being supported by the child, or living in an assisted living situation that is paid for by the
children. A number of factors maintain this high percentage of elderly people who need
assistance from their children, including the high cost of prescription drugs and medical care,
the economic downturn that began in 2008, affecting many investments and retirement funds and
the trend toward longer lives that is creating larger numbers of very elderly people.
