The County will be making free prescription drug discount cards available under a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo) that offers average savings of 20 percent off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs.
The cards may be used by all County residents, regardless of age, income, or existing health coverage, and are accepted at all of the County’s pharmacies – Conroy, Leslie’s, The Medicine Shoppe, and Stop & Shop. A national network of more than 57,000 participating retail pharmacies also will honor the NACo prescription discount card.
“The County of Dukes County is proud to be one of the counties nationwide participating with NACo.” said E. Winn Davis, County Manager. “The NACo prescription discount card offers significant savings for the uninsured and underinsured residents of our County, and even those fortunate to have prescription coverage can use the card to save money on drugs that are not covered by their health plan. Residents do not have to be Medicare beneficiaries to be eligible for this program.”
Cards will be available at the County Administration Building, 9 Airport Road, Edgartown, and at other locations to be announced. For your free card contact E. Winn Davis, County Manager at 508.696.3840.
“Using the NACo prescription discount card is easy,” said E. Winn Davis, County Manager. “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 discount card program is administered by Caremark Rx, Inc.
