U.S. county offers prescription discount

Posted On Tue, October 18, 2011

A recent announcement from the National Association of Counties revealed that Yamhill County, Oregon, has released prescription discount cards for its citizens.

The decision adds another area to the more than 1,400 counties that offer such a plan, which can save those who are insured or uninsured as much as 24 percent on prescription drugs. There is no cost for residents to acquire the cards, the release noted. Nearly 90 percent of pharmacies in the area accept these cards.

"Recognizing the difficulties many of our residents face when trying to pay for their health care needs, all three County Commissioners are happy to be able to provide them with the Prescription Discount Card," said Kathy George, commissioner for Yamhill County. "This card offers residents - both insured and uninsured - significant savings on prescription medications."

For those who live elsewhere in the United States, it may benefit to check with local governments to see if this, or a similar option, is available. Regardless of that, it could be a smart idea to go online and compare health insurance quotes to save money on healthcare.
