Prescription Benefits for You and Your Employees
Rx-Saver (www.Rx-Saver.com/asa) - ASA and Sunergeo Inc. offer members a no-cost prescription drug discount card through the Rx-Saver program. The Rx-Saver discount prescription card is accepted by more than 63,000 pharmacies nationwide, including all major chains. Persons who will benefit most from the Rx-Saver card are those who have no prescription drug insurance coverage or limited coverage.
This easy-to-use, no-cost offering is estimated to provide ASA members the opportunity to save an average of 20 percent annually on their prescription drug purchases. Also, the program covers everyone in the cardholder's household, so members may purchase their spouse's or children's prescriptions on the same discount plan. With the rising cost of health care and related expenses, this new member benefit will assist members, their employees and families in reducing some of those costs. ASA members are encouraged to take advantage of this savings opportunity, as well as provide it to their employees as part of their overall employee benefits package.
Get Discounts on Educational Offerings
Delphi (www.delphi-iss.com) - Through an agreement with Delphi, ASA members are able to choose from a variety of Web-based training and educational packages at a highly discounted rate. The products and services available through Delphi will help ASA members establish career development programs for technicians, provide effective consumer communication tools and offer access to additional repair information options.
Benefit Provider of the Month
"Cintas and ASA have had a successful relationship for several years. We appreciate all of the support that ASA has given Cintas over the years. By recently adding additional business lines such as a First Aid and Safety program and giving members a Web site for direct uniform purchases/leases, Cintas continues to strive to meet the needs of ASA members. We enjoy the relationship with ASA and its members and look forward to continuing it for years to come."
– Mac Moser, Global Account Manager, Cintas
Savings on Credit Card Processing
