March 26th, 2014
MONTICELLO, N.Y., March 26 -- Sullivan County issued the following news:
In February of 2011, Sullivan County and ProAct implemented a free prescription drug discount card program for all county residents. As the program approaches its second year, Sullivan County residents have combined to save over $1 million on nearly 12,000 prescriptions.
Sullivan County is one of many counties across the country who have endorsed the ProAct administered program to provide lower costing prescriptions for their residents. There are no enrollment forms or application fees to utilize the program and every resident within the county is eligible to participate regardless of age, income or existing health care coverage.
"We want to be sure that county residents know that they no longer have to pay the full cash price for their prescription medications," said Nancy McGraw, Public Health Director. The ProAct Prescription Discount Card Program plays a key role in helping residents gain access to affordable prescriptions."
The Sullivan County Prescription Discount Card is completely anonymous and has already been activated for residents' convenience. In order to receive the savings associated with the program, one must present their prescription and discount card at a participating pharmacy. With over 60,000 pharmacies participating across the county, visit www.NYRxDiscountCard.com to find your nearest participating store or call the ProAct helpdesk at 1-877-776-2285. Residents who utilize the program can expect to see savings ranging from 10-20% off name brand medications and 20-70% off generic medications. The discount card cannot be used to reduce co-pays or deductibles, and the card cannot be used in conjunction with any form of insurance.
The Prescription Discount Card Program is completely free to taxpayers, the county and to participating residents. There are no restrictions on card usage and we encourage every resident in the county to carry a card to avoid paying the full cash price for any of their medications. If a resident needs an additional card, or has lost their card, a supply of cards is available at the Sullivan County Public Health Services, 50 Community Lane, Liberty, at the Government Center in Monticello, or at any participating pharmacy in the county. If residents have access to the internet, they can also obtain their Sullivan County discount card by visiting www.NYRxDiscountCard.com.
