Community Assistant Program (CAP)

Genesis Business Capital, Inc. has partnered with Community Assistance Program (CAP) to provide prescription discounts good for clients of all ages; however, seniors like the fact that you use as a leave behind piece, it might help a family member or any friend.

They provide discount health, dental, vision and prescription products to the general public. It has become well-known that NBBI offers free discount RX cards and rather than having the staff at NBBI fielding questions and sending out these cards, Community Assistance Program was established just to take care of these requests, and to distribute the discount cards to as many needy people as possible. All CAP does is distribute free cards, answer questions about how to use them, help people compare drug prices if they don’t have internet access, and help find people the pharmacies with the best prices on the RX they need. Also CAP chooses several large organizations per year that it assists in fundraising using the RX cards. CAP never charges for any of these outreach services.

The Rx cards are accepted at over 80% of the pharmacies in the US and Puerto Rico. There are over 60,000 pharmacies in the network. Savings are best on generic drugs, but brand name drugs are also discounted. Anyone can use the cards, regardless of income. They assist the uninsured the most, but we have found that people on Medicaid or Medical also benefit when they need a brand name drug that is not on the reimbursable list of Medicaid, or if they need uncovered drugs such as fertility drugs or certain diabetes supplies. Seniors benefit when they fall into the Medicare Part D coverage gap.

The cards have no expiration date, and we do not plan to terminate this program in the near future. It is a plan that is expected to continue. It was not promoted at all until October of 2009, when in response to demand and need, we decided to not just respond to requests, but rather to contact those in need and distribute the cards to whomever is in need of prescription drug payment help. We currently contact places like social service agencies, government agencies, mental health clinics, hospitals, etc. to see if they would like a supply of cards to distribute to the people they serve.
