Effective June 1, the new cards start saving you money! All you have to do is determine which of the 73 different cards is right for you, depending on whether your income is below $1,500 a month (or $1,400 for couples), and you qualify for the $600 annual credit, if you're a member of an HMO or are getting your card through an insurance company, drug company, or other provider, and whether the card you're considering works in your state (some only work in certain states) and works in your pharmacy (others work only in certain pharmacies) and which drugs are covered by your card (discounts vary and can change without notice, as do the drugs they cover, which can also change without notice). After you've figured all that out, check again to make sure none of the variables have changed while you were researching, and bingo - you've got it!
