Washington County Board of County
Commissioners has launched a discount card program to
help consumers cope with the high price of prescription drugs.
Washington County is making free prescription drug discount cards
available under a program sponsored by the National Association of
Counties (NACo) offering a substantial savings 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 most of the county's pharmacies.
Cards are available at 5 sites in Chipley, such as the Board of County Commissioners Building, Tri-County Community Council, Washington County Health Dept., Northwest Florida Community Hospital and the Medicine Shop.
Using the NACo prescription discount card is easy. 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 is administered nationally by Scottsdale, Arizona-based Caremark Rx, Inc.
