Lancaster County residents are now given an opportunity to save money on prescription medications at participating Caremark pharmacies. These discount cards are being sponsored by NACo (National Association of Counties) and offer an average savings of 22%. The program offers discounts on prescriptions that are not covered by other health insurance plans. The discount can be used as often as needed with no limitations or restrictions. Simply present the card at a participating pharmacy to receive qualifying discounts on medication. There are no enrollment forms, membership fees, or eligibility guidelines. One card can offer coverage for an entire family. Cards are available at any county or municipal office, recreational facility, library, pharmacy or senior center.  In an interview with Lancaster County Commissioner Scott Martin, Martin comments that pet medications are also eligible for discounts.

For additional information on the free prescription discount cards, you can visit the Caremark website or call their customer service hotline at 1-877-321-2652.
