The real reason drug makers offer discount cards (you’ll pay eventually)

After years of paying $200 for her daughter’s three-month insulin supply, Polina Bryson was relieved to find a way to cut that cost by more than half.

Now, she’s able to refill the prescription earlier and for just $70, granting Bryson “a lot more wiggle room now,” and a lot less stress.

“This is a life-or-death situation” for her 11-year-old, Bryson said. “It’s given us extra peace of mind.”

Drug manufacturers offer co-pay savings or discount cards as apparent deals, which they pitch to consumers as a way to pay “as little as” a specific low price or even as carrying no cost at all.
