City of Shoreline residents have access to easy-to-use prescription discount card

Thursday, July 29, 2010

In the current economic climate where people are watching their spending, the discount card can offer average savings of 20 percent off the retail price of prescription drugs

The City of Shoreline has launched a program to help provide residents with some relief from the high cost of prescription drugs. The City is making free prescription discount cards available to Shoreline residents through a program sponsored by the National League of Cities (NLC). The discount cards offer residents savings off the retail price of commonly prescribed medications.

The discount card may be used by all residents of Shoreline and has no restrictions based on the resident’s age, income level, or existing health coverage. The discount card benefits not only those without insurance, but can also be used by underinsured residents to obtain prescriptions that are excluded from health benefit plans. The NLC card can be used when purchasing prescription drugs at participating pharmacies around the city and across the country.

There is no enrollment form required to get a card, no membership fee of any kind and City residents and their family members can use the card any time their prescriptions are not covered by insurance. Cards can be printed from the Internet at no cost. City residents can visit the website to find a list of participating pharmacies and access program tools or call toll-free (888) 620-1749 for assistance with the program.

The discount card program is administered by CVS Caremark.
