We’d also like to share a working definition of what a deductible is, and how it relates to insurance: “In an insurance policy, the deductible is the portion of any claim that is not covered by the insurance provider. It is the amount of expenses that must be paid out of pocket before an insurer will cover any expenses. The first commercial deductible was introduced by Norman Baglini in 1952. It is normally quoted as a fixed quantity and is a part of most policies covering losses to the policy holder. The deductible must be paid by the insured, before the benefits of the policy can apply. Typically, a general rule is: the higher the deductible, the lower the premium, and vice versa.” (Source: wikipedia)

My Coupon Doc is your source for healthcare coupons and discounts.
We launched in April 2012 with one goal: to make healthcare more affordable through the discounts that we source. Americans are hurting – Copays on medications have more than doubled over the past ten years alone, and insurance premiums have increased over 20% on average. We want to help you save on what matters – you won’t find deals on restaurants or oil changes here. Just deals on the medications you need to stay healthy.
The process is simple – search by medication or illness to find coupons that are relevant to you, or if you want to just see all the discounts we have available take a look at our coupon directory. We’ve indexed over 400 coupons on the most common prescription and over-the-counter medications out there. All you have to do is click on the redeem button, fill out any of the required information, print the coupon, and take it with you to the pharmacy. A few minutes of work can lead to hundreds of dollars in savings annually.
