HealthTrans Access Partners with the Aurora Chamber of Commerce to Offer Discounts on Prescription Medications

Discount Prescription Program Available to All Aurora Residents at No Cost

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HealthTrans Access, a comprehensive discount healthcare provider, today announced a partnership with the Aurora Chamber of Commerce to offer chamber members and Aurora residents a prescription drug discount program. The free program provides deep discounts on prescription drugs for the entire family.

The partnership between HealthTrans Access and the Aurora Chamber of Commerce will focus on providing a valuable prescription discount option to Aurora’s small businesses. The free prescription card can also be used by individuals whose medications are not covered by their existing healthcare plans, the unemployed, or those only working part-time.

The HealthTrans Access discount prescription card is accepted at over 58,000 chain and independent pharmacies nationwide, providing discounts of up to 85 percent on both brand and generic prescription medications. The card also offers discounts on mail order options, over-the-counter medications, smoke cessation aids and diabetes supplies.

“With the current economic climate, many businesses and families are finding that their paycheck doesn’t go as far as it used to, and they often skip prescription medications in an effort to make ends meet,” said Michael Oshins, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Discount Healthcare at HealthTrans. “We believe there’s a great need to provide affordable prescription medications. We are thrilled that the Aurora Chamber of Commerce is such an advocate for local businesses, as well as for the residents of Aurora. This partnership will help ensure that Aurora residents no longer compromise their health in an effort to keep costs down.”

“The Aurora Chamber provides valuable resources to area businesses in an effort to help them realize greater success. We are pleased to offer our members and Aurora residents an option that will provide valuable discounts on prescription medications,” said Kevin Hougen, president and CEO of the Aurora Chamber of Commerce. “We hope the HealthTrans Access program will help ease some of the burden of healthcare costs.”
