Additional Complaint Information
BBB files indicate a pattern of complaints concerning company mailings sent to consumers and business practices/privacy policies of the company. Complaints are coming into BBB alleging issues with receiving unsolicited mailings from Script Relief LLC (or from one of its brand/subsidiary names) containing prescription discount cards. Receipt of these cards is raising concern from consumers who are worried about potential identity theft, healthcare fraud, or that their personal information is being collected and distributed for unknown purposes. Some consumers tell BBB that documentation received from the company mimics official government notices by using a brand name such as United States Prescription Discounts, along with terms phrases such as "Form #" or "Resident Code", as well as a Washington D.C. return mailing address. All of these factors contribute to some consumers reporting that they thought this is an official program of the U.S. government, or part of the Affordable Care Act.
BBB has contacted the company concerning the aforementioned issues. The company told BBB that they do not use, sell or share cardholders' personal information, and are fully compliant with HIPAA standards. They also say that they disclose in their mailings that they are not affiliated with the U.S. government, and that any of their brand names or language used in the mailers that evoke the United States or America is not intentional.

If you are considering using a discount prescription or pharmacy card, be aware that the card is not insurance. Consumers should compare prices of medications before using the discount cards. Although the savings may be real with the discount card, they may be based on prices other than the ones offered by local pharmacies. Comparing prices allows the consumer to get the best price for the medication. And if you're really struggling to pay for your medications, talk to your pharmacist about patient assistance programs that could provide even greater discounts.
