Health Discount Savings Programs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the typical household of 2.5 people in 2005 spent an average of $2,664 annually on health care. With costs so high, many people turn to health discount savings programs to save on their health care and medication costs. A variety of discount programs exist to assist people in lowing their health care expenses.
