Warning- There are SCAMs out there even if the card is free!

Can these actually reduce costs... or is it just another expense.

Warning- There are SCAMs out there even if the card is free!

There are SCAMs out there even if the card is free. This is not only prescription cards, but health cards, dental cards, optical cards, etc.

Take a look at this site: http://www.highqualityhealthcare.com/ .
They are named AmeriPlan and their site has the misleading name of highqualityhealthcare. Everything LOOKS legit.

Now look at one of their other sites:http://www.iboplus.com/40421083

This one tells people how they can make HUGE money pushing this plan. The question is how that might happen.

Now look at this scam/fraud alert site: http://www.scamfraudalert.com/showthread.php?p=9891

Basically saying they are only interested in harvesting your information and selling it. It is tied with the herbalite mess. http://www.cockeyed.com/workfromhome/workfromhome.html

Now... there may be legitimate cards out there... but I would check carefully what their privacy statement is, then with the BBB, and finally with the pharmacy where you do business. If everyone says it is ok then there should be no problem.

Remember, there are LEGITIMATE cards out there that can save you money. We will try to research and report on those.

more problems with cards

Postby Oh No!! » Fri Nov 24, 2006 11:30 pm

There appears to be more problems with these cards than what was posted above.

Even if a card passes those tests... It appears you still have to watch out being scammed. Take a look at http://www.medkb.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/diabetes-forum/6219/Price-Hikes-Stealth-Style

The major complaint is that the drug costs more with the card than without it.

I have looked at some cards at this looks like it could be easily a problem with others.

All I can suggest is that IF you use a card, first find out the cash (no card) price and then use whichever is cheaper.

AmeriPlan Saved Me A LOT Of Money!

Postby Keith » Fri Nov 24, 2006 11:31 pm

I have used AmeriPlan and saved a LOT of money with their membership card! HighQualityHealthCare.com IS ligitimate. I know of others who have purchased AmeriPlan through this site.

It doesn't surprise me that people make money promoting a service that helps people. We live in a country that rewards people for selling good products and services.

You'll find a lot of people online that think they've been ripped-off at other legitimate establishments like Walmart for example, but I still shop there and I have saved money there also.

I know there may be some discount cards that are not legit, but I've used AmeriPlan and they are very legitimate. I see they're also in good standing with the better business bureau so my good experience is confirmed by many others.

Worse than I thought

Postby Oh No!! » Sat Nov 25, 2006 12:00 am

I kept trying to verify if any of these cards were not scams in some way. While doing that I found out when I Googled
"prescription card" craigslist


I got 4130 hits!!!! What is worse is that all of the ones I clicked on were virtually identical in wording and all said they were local to the specific area that that Craigslist covered!

This does not look good folks. :shock:
Oh No!!
