With the ever increasing cost of prescription medications, HCCUA wants you know that there are many ways to reduce or even eliminate many of your medication expenses. We have a whole department dedicated to work with you to identity prescription savings and fee waiver opportunities and navigate the system, freeing up extra money to spend on meaningful healthcare.
Most Americans are not aware of the help that is available to reduce, or in some cases eliminate their costs for brand name and generic medications. Our staff at HCCUA is well equipped and educated in researching and identifying programs to assist in these types of situations. We will not only help you find the appropriate options, but will assist with the application process and paperwork. Best of all, this comes at no additional charge to you!
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Our staff will work with you to identify which medications you are currently taking and programs that are available to help you reduce your costs. Here are some of the ways that we can typically help (where and when available):
- Free Medications
- Discount Medications
- Small Co-Pays
- Mail Order Options
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you currently need prescription assistance, please complete the following documents in which you receive in your Welcome Kit and return them in the enclosed prepaid envelope:
- Prescription Assistance Form
- Authorization for Use and Disclosure of Protected Health Information
- Membership Billing Confirmation Letter
When we receive the completed forms from you, we will then contact you to set up an initial appointment to speak with one of our Prescription Specialist. The specialist will then verify all your information, explain how the process works, and answer various questions you might have. Then all you have to do is sit back and let us go to work for you. It’s that easy!
If you have any additional questions please call us at Member Services 866-227-5400
Eating on the run? Tired of experimenting with new diets?
Forget to eat your veggies? These are all common factors among many of us. Busy
schedules, fad diets, and bad eating habits get in the way of proper nutrition.
Luckily, there are mineral supplements and multi-vitamins to help replace much
needed nutrients such as zinc, calcium, potassium and magnesium.

Dear HCCUA Members:
As we approach the end of the year, we begin to experience
cooler and shorter days. It is vital that we take proper precautions towards
Covid, while keeping in mind the common cold and flu season which is most customary
during this time of the year. It is easy to catch the common cold or flu
because defenses are down, and people have the tendency to fall out of daily
routines like eating right and exercising daily.

Insurance agents are more important than ever!
Purchasing health insurance can be very confusing. How do you decide
which co-pays and deductibles are right for you? Do you know how your
out-of-pocket medical costs can be managed using a “gap” policy? HCCUA suggests
members reach out to a professional to get the help they need answering these
questions. Would you purchase a house without consulting a realtor?
Probably not. Licensed insurance professionals can help you:

Dear HCCUA Members:
There’s a tough conversation facing parents who
truly care about what their children are learning from them. It’s easily dodged
and rationalized as something better addressed at another time, and too easily
hidden beneath a surface appearance of propriety and health. It’s the
antithesis of what our parents often said to us – do as I say, not as I do –
which today has been exposed as a Clintonesque deflection of responsibility
stemming from ignorance and, perhaps, an unencumbered selfishness. Nobody
expects parents to be perfect. In fact, the way parents address their own
imperfections can effectively model desired behavior and values for children.
But when parents stick to their faulty guns with the stubborn resolve of an
addict, or worse, if they fail to recognize the insidious little ways their own
choices are poisoning the perceptions of their children, they are coming up
short on their report card of parental effectiveness. These parents need a wakeup
call, because the window of opportunity to make lasting impressions on our
children is short and closing fast, and the bad impressions are every bit as
enduring as the good ones.

Dear HCCUA Members:
Have you ever heard the adage that you are what you
eat? Well, it may be more appropriate to say that you are what you drink. And
whether you realize it or not, water is the main ingredient of everything,
including your body.

One way to
stay healthy is to keep your blood work up to date. By using those results,
doctors can catch conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and many
others before they become evident to you. They also can tell doctors the
function of your body and performance of your organs.
