July 24th, 2013
In February 2011 Livingston County launched the ProAct Prescription Discount Card to their residents. The program targets those individuals who are uninsured or underinsured by providing financial relief at the pharmacy checkout. Residents of Livingston County utilized the discount card for more than 20,000 prescriptions and saved over $900,000 since the start of the program.
By partnering with ProAct, Livingston County is one of many counties across the country who are able to provide their residents, regardless of age or income, affordable access to a healthier lifestyle. Every prescription receives a discount, including some pet medications. When visiting the pharmacy simply show the pharmacist/pharmacist technician the discount card and receive an average of 10-20% savings off name brand medications and 20-70% savings off generic medications. Residents can visit the discount card website at www.NYRxDiscountCard.com to locate the nearest participating pharmacy as well as check the cost of the medications needed.
“This program initiated with the goal to help alleviate some financial inconveniences to all residents,” said Chairman James Merrick. “We encourage every household to keep a discount card on-hand whether or not they are insured, in the off chance they need to purchase a prescription at full price.”
The ProAct Rx Discount Card Program is completely free for the county and residents.Discount cards have been provided to county offices including the Department of Social Services, the Health Department, Office for the Aging, County Government Center and to all participating pharmacies.
