We’re excited to announce our partnership with WellCard to bring you the FREE Travel Pharmacist Prescription Discount Card for savings of up to 80% on your medications – even discounts on PET MEDICINES!
Free Prescription Discount Card for Everyone
Whether you already have prescription insurance or not, this card may be able to save you up to 80% (see my personal experience below) on prescription drug prices from your local pharmacy. Over 59,000 pharmacies participate, so it’s likely you’ll find your local pharmacy in the handy provider and drug checker tool.
Perfect for pet medicines, travelers, or medications not covered by Medicare Part D – your free prescription savings card can provide welcome relief from the unexpected high cost of prescription drugs. The entire family is covered under one prescription discount card and some medicines are even less expensive than your insurance co-pay!
Rx Discounts and So Much More
Not only do you get access to valuable prescription drug discounts, but a fantastic new card benefit is 24/7 TeleHealth through MD iCare. Whether it’s late at night, or you’re at work or on vacation, you can speak with a nurse and doctor on the phone to quickly get the care you need. MD iCare is a network of US board certified doctors and nurses ready to answer your call and get you better fast.
As a Travel Pharmacist Prescription Discount Card holder, you have 24/7, immediate free access to licensed nurses through MD iCare who will guide you to the care you need. When appropriate, you can consult with a physician via phone from anywhere for a flat fee.
Telemedicine is sweeping the country because of convenience and fast access to quality medical care – from the comfort of your home. Imagine not having to load sick kids up in the car or drag yourself to a crowded doctor’s office when you’re really feeling awful. One phone call can include your doctor’s office visit and possibly a prescription on the way to your local pharmacy (where you’ll save even more using your prescription discount card!)
My Personal Experience
As a practicing pharmacist and writer for The Travel Pharmacist, I was skeptical. This prescription card wasn’t an insurance card, it was just a prescription savings card, so how much could a simple pharmacy discount card really save me? Maybe a few pennies…but certainly not worth the effort of downloading and printing out something to give to my retail pharmacist, right? I was so wrong!
I take 2 prescription medicines, atenolol 50mg and atorvastatin 10mg, and do not have drug coverage through my medical insurance. I paid the full cash price at Publix for the first month until I decided to “just see” what the rx savings would be through the card.
Here’s what I found…
Atorvastatin 10mg #90 my usual and customary (cash price) at Publix = $126.95 (gulp!). Price with the new prescription discount card = $15.40! (That’s an 88% savings!)
Atenolol 50mg #90 cash price at Publix = $49.95. My price with the new card = $11.91!! (76% savings from the cash price!)
These are a very real example of my being able to find an extra $149.59 every 3 months thanks to the new prescription discount card! I’m very happy to find extra $$ anytime because now we can travel even longer! 😉
Don’t be stubborn like me and pay more than you need to at the pharmacy – download your prescription discount card right now and start using it immediately. Once you register, it’s easy to put all of your medications into the Drug Price Checker to see exactly how much you can save on your prescriptions each month.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Also Use the Discount Card for My Pet Medicines?
YES!! Unlike other dependents, you can’t put family pets on your medical insurance and medicines from the vet can be expensive. Dogs and cats are often prescribed many of the same drugs used by humans to treat arthritis, anxiety, heart problems, hyperthyroidism, and infections – only at different dosages. Many local pharmacies specialize in pet medicines and dosing, so you can use your Travel Pharmacist Prescription Discount Card to cover medicines for beloved family pets as well!
Is There a Monthly Fee or Registration Cost?
No, the card is entirely free to download and use. There’s even a free mobile APP to use on your phone for even more convenience. You pay for the services you receive at a reduced price based on pre-negotiated prices by WellCard services. We at the Travel Pharmacist receive a small commission each time you use the card, but it doesn’t add any additional cost to you.
Is the Discount Card the Same as Prescription Coupons?
The Travel Pharmacist Prescription Discount Card works the same way as prescription coupons, but covers all of your medications as well as giving access to 24/7 TeleHealth and other cash saving offers. You can check drug prices on all of your medications – including pet medicines – to start saving on your next prescription fills.
Can I Use the Prescription Savings Card in the USA?
As travelers, we all know getting sick when spending time in the United States can be costly. Healthcare costs in the US are much higher than many other countries, so getting sick while traveling in the US can take a serious bite out of your budget! Finding affordable access to healthcare when traveling in the US can be a challenge if you are a long-term traveler or just traveling through the US.
We have had our own fair share of travel-related sickness abroad, but luckily a trip to the walk-in emergency doctors office in South Africa only set up back about $30 USD including medication. When in Australia, an appointment including a complete physical was around $50 including all tests. A quick trip to a walk-in clinic when in Hawaii to treat a minor allergic rash (who knew mango rash was a ‘thing’???) cost us almost $300, NOT including the prescription that cost $75. WOW! Healthcare prices in the United States are out of control. Having this card in your wallet might bring a little peace of mind.
