I recently received a "Pharmacy Discount Card" in the mail. It's got a member id# on it, but it is not affiliated with my insurance. On the back it lists Loeb Enterprises. Anyone else receive this card? Not sure what to make of it.

Loeb Enterprises itself looks like an investment firm.

But there's also quite a bit on the web about the discount cards. From the few things I've checked, you basically can save money off the cash price of various prescriptions, at whatever pharmacy you use. But, if you're paying a co-pay to insurance, you won't save anything, since it's not part of an insurance plan. So for example - if your thyroid medicine costs $35/month for 100 micrograms, once per day, this card will make that only cost you $20 or $25 or $30 (whatever the discount is for that particular medication). But if you only pay $5/month for a month's worth of prescription, the card can't be used for an additional discount because it's already lower than the discounted price.

Edited to add: It looks also like there's a question on the integrity of the company that offers this card. They might be using your personal information or selling your name to a listing service or something. I'm not sure, there's different people making different claims. You'd probably want to do some googling before using it. But it looks like, legit or not, it really does save people money on the full cash price of non-insured prescriptions.

I got a prescription discount card through Walgreens. It saves me 30-50% on the prescriptions I'm currently taking. Cost $20 per year. Ask the pharmacist for information.
