Carroll County To Offer Prescription Discount Card That Can Be Used by All Residents
Discount Cards Will Offer Average Savings Of 22 Percent Off Retail Price
[June 17, 2010] — Carroll County will soon be introducing a prescription discount card program to help consumers cope with the high price of prescriptions. The county has signed a contract to make free prescription discount cards available under a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo) that offers average savings of 22 percent off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs.
The cards, which will be available [August 1, 2010], may be used by all county residents, regardless of age, income, or existing health coverage. There are approximately  pharmacies in the county that will accept the NACo card, and a national network of more than 60,000 participating retail pharmacies also will honor it.
“The NACo prescription discount card will offer significant savings for the uninsured and underinsured residents of our county, and even those fortunate to have prescription coverage may use the card to save money on drugs that are not covered by their health plan,” said Ms. Sonja Leggett. “Residents do not have to be Medicare beneficiaries to be eligible for this program.”
There will be no cost to county taxpayers for NACo and Carroll County to make these money-saving cards available to residents. A future announcement will specify how and when the program is launched and how residents can obtain the cards. Cards will easily be available via the Internet and through various county locations.
“Using the NACo prescription discount card is easy,” said Ms. Sonja Leggett. “A cardholder will simply present it at a participating pharmacy. 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.”
The program is administered by CVS Caremark.
