Co-op Connections Card


Co-op members saved big in 2012 Last year was another record breaking


year of savings for OEC members using their Co-op Connections Card. Members saved just under $140,000 on prescription costs topping the previous record from 2010 by $13,375. Out of nearly 8,500 claims presented,


66 percent received a discount saving over 40 percent off the original cost. Were you one of these smart shoppers? It never hurts to use the card. Just present it to the pharmacist. Tey will be able to tell you if using the card will save you money or not. In some cases, the Co-op Connections Card price may be less than the price you pay with insurance. You will always receive the lowest price no matter what. With the advent of the Healthy


Savings Program in the fall of 2012, carrying the card can now save you even more. Use the card for discounts on dental care, labs, chiropractic visits, vision and hearing aid services. Savings examples include:


• 10% to 85% discounts on most prescriptions at over 60,000 participating pharmacies.


• 10% to 60% discounts on eyeglasses, contact lenses, eye exams and LASIK.


• 20% to 40% discounts on dental care like cleanings, x-rays, root canals, crowns and orthodontics.


• PLUS, additional savings on chiropractic visits, lab tests, imaging scans and hearing aids.

According to an April 2012 CBS News report titled "America's Dental Insurance Crisis," over 30% of the American population do not have dental insurance. That means over 100 million people will have to pay full price out of pocket for their dental expenses, or worse, go without needed dental care.


Co-op members can save between 20-40% on all dental services, including orthodontics, periodontics and endodontics with the Co-op Connections Card.
