“Program Helps Pay for Medications”

The News and Farmer - The Jefferson Reporter (October 2014)

John Cenerazzo directs a program that helps people pay for prescription drugs. Cenerazzo said the program, Georgia Drug Card, assists people without prescription coverage, people who have insurance but need medications not covered and people who have insurance with high deductibles.

Using the card reduces the amount customers owe the pharmacy.

"Throughout the month of October for every person who uses the Georgia Drug Card a donation is being made to the Breast Cancer Society," Cenerazzo said.

"This is the second year that we've done this program. We had a lot of success with it. Last year, we were able to raise $1,200. We'd like to do it every year," he said.

Improving breast cancer awareness is an issue close to Cenerazzo.

" I'ts kind of a personal matter. I have a relative who had breast cancer and is a survivor,"he said, adding this touches him personally.

"My aunt had breast cancer and is a survivor. Through this program I was actually able to help her afford her medications" he said.

This personal connection with a breast cancer patient and survivor gave him the idea to work with the Breast Cancer Society.

Cenerazzo said his program's mission goes hand in hand with the Breast Cancer Society's mission.

"They're out there to help others who need assistance. Our mission aligns with theirs. Our mission is to provide prescription assistance to Georgians in need, help them afford the medications that they need," he said.

Georgia Drug Card launched in conjunction with the Medical Association of Georgia in 2010.

Cenerazzo said they launched the program as an initiative to help people in the state who otherwise could not afford their medicines.

"We're with well over 56,000 pharmacies nationwide. Both chains and independents accept our program. The usage will transfer over to another state; but, the program was launched for residents in Georgia," he said.

Georgians can visit the program's website at www.georgiadrugcard.com to get a card or visit a CVS pharmacy.

Cenerazzo said anyone without access to the internet can still use the program.

"We have a preferred pharmacy; and, that is CVS," he said. Georgia residents without internet access or a printer can use CVS for to fill their prescriptions without having to use a hard card.

"We are working with the Medical Association of Georgia to create more distribution sites throughout the state. You can request complimentary hard card by sending me an email at johnc@georgiadrugcard.com or by calling me directly," Cenerazzo said. His number is 404-630-4500.

"We are actually funded through the participation of pharmaceutical companies. We are not a state-funded program. We receive a small revenue from usage that comes down line from our program administrator, which is RESTAT, Cenerazzo said.

"Our program is completely confidential. We don't see any customer information. We don't collect any customer information," he said.

“More Georgians Have Access to Prescription Savings”

Statewide Prescription Assistance Program Offers a Prescription to High Healthcare Costs

The Centers for Disease Control reports that Americans spend more on prescription drugs than people in any other country: some $45 billion in out-of-pocket dollars in the last year alone. With that in mind, the Georgia Drug Card is reminding physicians that their patients who aren't insured or who take prescription drugs that aren't covered by their health insurance plans, can use the Georgia Drug Card to obtain discounts of up to 80 percent off the retail price for brand and generic FDA-approved medications.

Medical Association of Georgia has been working closely with Georgia Drug Card to distribute free discount prescription cards to all Georgians. The goal of the partnership is to provide additional card distribution channels and create awareness so that all residents will have access to this free statewide prescription assistance program. Georgia Drug Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents afford their prescription medications. The program can also be used by people that have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans.

"We believe that the Georgia Drug Card is an easy and innovative way to help patients afford the medications they need," explained Donald Palmisano Jr., CEO of MAG.

Another unique component of the program is their preferred pharmacy option. Georgia Drug Card has chosen CVS/pharmacy as their preferred pharmacy so that residents who don't have access to a computer and can't obtain a hard card, can visit any CVS/pharmacy to have their prescriptions processed through Georgia Drug Card. Residents can simply reference "Georgia Drug Card" to have their prescription processed through the program. Georgia Drug Card is accepted at over 56,000 participating regional and national pharmacies.

"We strongly believe that this is an easy and innovative way to help the residents of Georgia find affordable prescription options," states Program Director, John A. Cenerazzo III.

Georgia Drug Card has helped residents save over $43 million since its inception in July 2010. You can help by encouraging your patients to print a free Georgia Drug Card at www.GeorgiaDrugCard.com. Georgia Drug Card is also available as an app for iPhone and Android. You can search "Free Rx iCard" in the app store. Any physicians who are interested in ordering free cards for their clinic/hospital can email John A. Cenerazzo III, Program Director, at johnc@georgiadrugcard.com .
