Allegheny County is now offering free prescription discount cards to help consumers cope with the high price of prescriptions. The cards are available under a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo) and will offer average savings of 22 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, at more than 300 pharmacies in Allegheny County. A national network of more than 60,000 participating retail pharmacies will also honor the NACo prescription discount card. There is no enrollment form, no membership fee and no restriction or limits on frequency of use.
The card will offer significant savings for the uninsured and underinsured residents of our County. Even those fortunate enough to have health care coverage can use the card to save money on medications that are not covered by their health plans. Best of all, there is no cost to taxpayers for NACo and Allegheny County to make these money-saving cards available to our residents.
The discount cards are available at Allegheny County government offices, Allegheny County Housing Authority communities, Family Support Centers, Head Start child care centers, CareerLink offices, Goodwill stores, public libraries, senior centers and many pharmacies.
