Almost one in five American adults experience mental illness each year—and fewer than half receive treatment. As we recognize Mental Health Awareness Month this month, know that it’s okay not to be okay.
What’s not acceptable is that many Americans lack access to mental health services and face high prescription costs for medications to treat their conditions. Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders are often neglected in public health programs.
Blue KC doesn’t want the cost of prescription drugs to prevent you or your family members from getting the treatment you deserve. That’s why Blue KC provides Rx Savings Solutions (RxSS) to help members find the most affordable options available to them.
Here’s just one real-life example:
- A 32-year-old RxSS member with bipolar disorder was paying nearly $450 for a 30-day supply of a brand-name medication.
- She received a savings alert from RxSS informing her of a clinically effective alternative that would only cost her $5 per fill.
- With one click from her RxSS account, she was able to get her doctor’s approval for the new prescription and it was ready by her next fill.
- It was that simple and resulted in this member seeing annualized savings of more than $5,000.
As a Blue KC member, you are not alone. We’re here to give you access to resources like RxSS that can help. Even if you’re worried about changing your current prescription, RxSS will work with you to contact your healthcare provider and make sure the switch is right for you.
