BadgerRx Gold was a program designed to assist in keeping prescription drugs accessible and affordable for Wisconsin residents. If you lived in Wisconsin, you were eligible. It was that simple. There was no age requirement and no screening for pre-existing health conditions.
Modeled after a landmark drug benefit program created for employees of the State of Wisconsin, BadgerRx Gold was a public-private sector partnership between the state and Navitus Health Solutions that strived to bring affordable prescription drugs to the uninsured and underinsured. The purchasing power of this partnership, which has already helped to save the state $25 million in prescription drug costs in the first year alone, was being offered to Wisconsin residents.
BadgerRx Gold was not a drug discount card. It was a program that offered lower costs on methodically selected medications that were monitored for your safety and well-being using a team of Wisconsin physicians and pharmacists.
There were hundreds of pharmacies in Wisconsin participating in BadgerRx Gold. Many people joined and started saving up to 25-40% on the price of covered medications right at the time of sale at your local participating pharmacy.
