MediXall.com Launches New Prescription Discount Program, MediXallRx
MediXall Group Inc., based in Ft. Lauderdale, recently announced that MediXall.com users now have access to the  MediXallRX Discount program. By signing up for a MediXall.com account, the consumer can utilize drug price look-up and comparison technology that provides accurate drug prices from national pharmacy chains as well as regional and local drug stores across the nation. The MediXallRx program benefits underinsured consumers that have gaps in prescription coverage, high co-pays, and/or high deductibles as well as the uninsured.

With the launch of the MediXallRx Discount Program, MediXall.com provides a powerful, free tool to search and compare prescription drug prices, which can differ greatly between competing pharmacies, and receive immediate savings using the MediXallRx Saving Card at the register on both generic and brand prescription medications. Consumers simply enter the name of a prescription drug and their zip code. MediXallRx will immediately display both a list and a map of prices for both the brand name and generic versions of the drug from local pharmacies.
