City Participating in Prescription Cost Reduction Program Available to all Residents
The City of Edwardsville, Kansas has a new program which offers
savings on prescription drugs to residents who are without health
insurance, a traditional benefits plan, or have prescriptions that are
not covered by insurance.
The Prescription Discount Card is made available to residents of Edwardsville in collaboration with the National League of Cities (NLC) and is made possible through Edwardsville’s membership in the NLC.
The card is free to all Edwardsville residents, regardless of age, income, or existing health insurance. Benefits of the program include an average savings of 20 percent off the regular retail price of prescription drugs, coverage of all family members, and unlimited usage. Furthermore, nine out of ten pharmacies accept the discount card, including major pharmacies such as CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart. Local pharmacies, including Millers, also typically accept the card.
Visit http://www.caremark.com/nlc/ to print your card and learn more about the discount program including information regarding drug savings and participating pharmacies. Or, for more information, call toll free: 1-888-620-1749.
In addition to being printed electronically, the cards are also available for pick up at City Hall and various locations throughout Edwardsville.
This card is not insurance and cannot be used in conjunction with other insurance. It provides discounts on prescriptions that insurance companies do not cover. Discounts are only available at participating pharmacies and not on all medications. By using this card, participants agree to pay the entire prescription cost less any applicable discount. Savings may vary by drug and pharmacy.
