Dear Hamilton County Resident,
In our ongoing efforts to provide valuable services to county
we’ve enrolled Hamilton County in the National Association of
Counties’ Prescription Discount Card Program. We recognize rising
prescription drug costs are a problem for many of our residents and
we’re pleased to offer an option to help cuts costs. More than 1,000
counties throughout the country participate in this program, and
more than 59,000 pharmacies accept the discount card.
The card offers average savings of 22 percent. Among those who
benefit from the program:
County residents who are
County residents who are insured
but a drug may not be covered on their insurance plan.
County residents who must buy
human drugs for their pets.
There is no enrollment fee. You do not fill out any forms. There are
no age, income or medical-condition restrictions. The entire family
is covered with just one card and virtually all commonly prescribed
medicine is covered.
Also, it is important to note, there are no costs to the taxpayers
associated with this program. The program is 100 percent free.
Caremark negotiates the discounts directly with participating
pharmacies. Neither NACo nor the participating counties receive any
revenue from the program.
The county has ordered 200,000 discount cards to be delivered before
the first of the year. You can pick them up at the county’s Job and
Family Services Department, branches of the Public Library of
Cincinnati and Hamilton County, YMCA branches, the Council on Aging
of Southwest Ohio and many social service agencies, such as the
FreeStore Foodbank and Talbert House. Residents can also call
513-946-1010 for more information.
We hope you’ll find this card a welcome benefit as you look for ways
to trim costs from your household budget.
Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners
