The drug discount cards help consumers save money on their
prescription medications any time their prescriptions are
not covered by insurance
. The cards may be used at any participating
retail pharmacy. A discount card is not insurance.
Savings average 20 percent; some discounts may be more, and some less, depending on
the drug and quantity purchased. Cardholders are eligible for higher discounts on a
three-month supply of some medications through mail service. Cardholders also can
save on pet prescriptions at participating retail pharmacies.
The cards may be used by all county residents, regardless of age, income or existing
health coverage. There is no enrollment form, no membership fee and no restrictions
or limits on frequency of use. Cardholders and their family members may use the card
any time their prescriptions are not covered by insurance. Unlike many other card programs,
there is no enrollment cost or membership fee. The cardholder pays the negotiated discount
price or the pharmacy’s retail price, whichever is lower. The average discount is 20 percent.
Cardholder information remains confidential and is not resold to a third-party for any reason.
