MSDC, the Healthy Physician Foundation, and the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) are partnering to bring you more CME and content on the growing topic of lifestyle medicine. These interactive courses, done by experts, allow you to meet CME requirements, including in some cases the DC required public health courses.

How can I help my patients afford prescriptions AND donate to a good cause?

Rx4Miracles can help relieve the “sticker shock” your patients feel each time they pay for a prescription. The Rx4Miracles Prescription Savings Card provides savings for both brand and generic medications, requires no enrollment, no income requirements and is open to everyone. Rx4Miracles also generates funds which go back to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to support their efforts to improve and change pediatric healthcare and its impact on kids, families, and communities. Funds granted through our partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals help deliver specialized care, critical research, equipment, and resources necessary for hospital teams to provide life-saving care to the children in our community.
Rx4Miracles helps uninsured and underinsured individuals afford their prescription medications. However, Rx4Miracles can also be used by individuals who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Additionally, individuals who have prescription coverage can use Rx4Miracles for non-covered medications.
In collaboration with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals we are working to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Savings for you. Funds for them.
