BAC Sav-Rx Advantage Plan Helps Members Save Big

2020 Issue 3
International Funds

In response to the hardships caused by COVID-19, BAC President Tim Driscoll introduced the BAC Sav-Rx Advantage Plan, a new discount prescription program exclusively for BAC members. Designed to provide the lowest price at the pharmacy, the program’s discounts vary by pharmacy and medication. Participants typically save anywhere from 15% to 60% at local, retail pharmacies and 30% to 70% at the Sav-Rx Mail Order Pharmacy.

The plan—introduced and implemented in July and August, respectively—already is seeing great success. Just one month after its release, the program provided savings of more than $9,000 to more than 500 BAC members. As more BAC members take advantage of its offerings, the BAC Sav-Rx Advantage Plan is expected to provide even more savings. 

The BAC Sav-Rx Advantage Plan is not insurance. Instead, it helps reduce the cost of prescriptions for active members who may not qualify for health benefits through a local health and welfare plan, or for retirees who do not qualify for Medicare Part D. The plan also can be used by members eligible for prescription coverage through their local health and welfare plan, but who would like to purchase prescriptions not covered by the local plan.

To access your savings, simply present your Sav-Rx Advantage Discount Drug Cards at participating retail pharmacies or have your prescriptions filled through the Sav-Rx Mail Order Pharmacy.

With a network of more than 72,000 participating pharmacies, Sav-Rx Advantage Discount Cards are accepted at most major chains. To locate a participating pharmacy near you, visit, and enter the group on your ID card and your zip code. Call Sav-Rx at 866-912-7425 (866-91BRICK) to request a new or replacement Sav-Rx Advantage Discount Card.   

For even more savings, BAC members are invited to try the Sav-Rx Mail Order Pharmacy for medications prescribed for 31 days or more. To utilize this, ask your medical provider to submit prescriptions to Sav-Rx via electronic prescription. Refills are just as easy. You can ask for refills by phone (866-912-7425), on our website (, or through the Sav-Rx mobile application (find us on the Apple Store and Google Play!).
