Americans are paying more for prescription drugs than ever before. But there are now a number of prescription drug assistance programs in place to help decrease the costs.
Lake County is one of 37 counties nationwide participating in a prescription drug discount card pilot program sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo). With this card, free to county residents, you can save money on many of your prescription purchases.
Any county resident without prescription coverage can use this program. Even if you have insurance for prescription drugs, you may still benefit from the discount card, since it may save you money on prescription drugs your existing plan does not cover.
The NACo Prescription Discount Card is:
Valuable. Save an average of 20 percent off the pharmacy's regular price on all commonly prescribed prescriptions and an average savings of 50 percent on three-month supplies of select generics through mail service. Savings are also available on high-tech and injectable drugs through our specialty pharmacy.
Easy. There are no claim forms to fill out and no annual fee to pay.
Convenient. Over 54,000 participating retail pharmacies nationwide.
Seventeen different drug assistance programs. are detailed in RX Drug Assistance Programs At A Glace. All of these programs provide cost savings but differ in terms of eligibility requirements and other restrictions.
