Let the state buy drugs for you from a foreign country

I-SaveRx seems like an excellent program to help people safely save money on their medications.

This program that several states have joined in doing to help their residents reduce drug costs and increase the safety of buying drugs from a foreign country. It should be noted that the federal government also treats this program as illegal. It is available and open to all Illinois, Wisconsin, Kansas, Missouri and Vermont residents. Other states are considering joining the program.

This seems like a lot safer than guessing who might be selling counterfeit drugs to you.


Currently, I-Save Rx is not in operation. This is to inform staff regarding its status.
This Information Memorandum was prepared by Healthcare and Family Services (HFS). HFS administers the Medical Assistance, All Kids, FamilyCare, Breast and Cervical Cancer, Health Benefits for Workers with Disabilities (HBWD), Veterans Care and Illinois Healthy Women programs. These programs provide medical benefits to families with children, seniors, persons with disabilities and other persons. This information is to be used by staff of HFS and the Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS).
I-Save Rx is currently not in operation. HFS will notify staff if this program resumes. Clients who participated in I-Save Rx should contact their doctors to obtain their medication through their local pharmacy. If they need assistance paying for their medication and they do not qualify for medical benefits, refer them to the Illinois Rx Buying Club or other relevant programs.
If clients have any questions regarding I-Save Rx, they can call the HFS Health Benefits Hotline at 1-800-226-0768.
