TORONTO, Nov. 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Many Canadians are already familiar with and have benefited from RxHelp Patient Choice drug card programs. Now, patients will have access to brand medications with one single card, the RxHelp ONE ™. This new drug card is an ideal fit for heart disease and stroke patients taking multiple drugs who are looking for a cost effective way to remain on brand medications they trust.
RxHelp ONE ™ is also delighted to announce a new partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation, helping to support the Foundation's vision of healthy lives free of heart disease and stroke. A portion of the proceeds from this new drug card will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
The new RxHelp ONE ™ is free and will allow heart disease and stroke patients, as well as health professionals, to obtain brand name prescription drugs at little or no additional cost to the generic alternative. The prescription drugs available include cardiovascular medications for high cholesterol and hypertension. The full list of nearly 50 brand name medications currently available on the RxHelp ONE ™ program can be found on www.RxHelpONE.com/Heart
To obtain a card, health care consumers can simply go to www.RxHelpONE.com/Heart
