The uninsured and underinsured residents in the city of Los Angels are being introduced to a new prescription discount card thanks to Ed Reyes, a Los Angeles City Councilman. Reyes introduced the card through the St. Barnabas Senior Center of west LA.
Prescription Discount Card has Saved Residents $3.5 Million
Councilman Reyes struck a deal with the National League of Cities (NLC) to participate in its prescription discount program, which is administered by CVS Caremark. NLC has a membership of about 19,000 cities and represents 218 million Americans. Its core mission is to promote and strengthen cities by working with them to provide important opportunities, such as the prescription discount program, to their residents.
Since implementing the prescription discount card program in January 2009, participating city residents across NLC have saved approximately $3.5 million in medication costs. The LA program is directed to those with little or no medical insurance, especially working adults and seniors. The card offers a discount of 20% across the range of drugs available through contracting pharmacies. Not only can the card be used for prescription drugs not covered by insurance, it can also be used for pet discounts.
There is a no application fee for the card and any uninsured or underinsured resident will qualify. Although this particular program is directed to working adults and seniors, age or immigration status or health status will not disqualify applicants. Residents can pick up their NLC discount cards at community centers such as the St. Barnabas Senior Center, schools and libraries, or they can log onto CVS Caremark to print out their card.
