Prescription Drug Savings Cards
Do you find yourself without any choice but to take a name brand medication that has a high co-pay?
By clicking the link below you will be taken to a list of the most common brand medications used by our group and links to co-pay savings cards offered by the manufacturer's. Medication including Insulin and other diabetic medications are included on this list of available savings cards.
You won't find any medications on the list that have generic equivalents and all step therapy or prior authorization requirements remain.
These "savings cards" will work with our prescription drug plan and in many cases can be used for a 90 day fill using the Sav-Rx mail order prescription program. Once you follow the steps to a simple online activation process these cards will provide continued savings with every refill of your medication.
We have tried to capture the most common used medications, but please let us know if you are taking a high priced "brand" medication not on this list and we will do our best to locate a savings card for your medication.

Earlier this year with the uncertainty of whether Rick Rhodes would stay on in the position of Benefits Administrator for the Fund pending his retirement from the fire department the Fund completed an exhaustive nationwide search for a possible replacement. The position was also opened up to all participants of the Fund. Besides the announcements of the opening to all participants of the Fund two other sources were utilized for the announcement. The position was advertised for six weeks on the job board at the International Foundation of Employee Benefits, a highly respected national organization that deals with employee benefits such as pensions and health plans. The position was also advertised through Indeed, a national job placement service. No interest was received from the membership, nor was any interest received through the International Foundation; the latter is surmised by the low starting compensation package set by the Board of Trustees. Indeed produced numerous candidates, 95% of which had no experience in the benefits administration field, the other were all HR candidates that just didn’t seem to be the right fit for our organization.
In the end we were fortunate that Rick was willing to stay on in the position. Even if we had found a reasonably qualified candidate it still would have set us back with the need to bring a new person up to speed with all of the areas that Rick handles, and of course with knowing our participants as Rick does it was in the best interest of the Fund and the participants to have him agree to stay in the position.
