News for Broward County Residents:
Residents of Broward County are being offered free Prescription Discount Cards that offer an average 24 percent saving on the retail price of prescription drugs. Nine out of 10 pharmacies accept the card, which also can be used for some pet medications.
The cards may be used by all residents regardless of age, income or existing health coverage. They are good for people who have no health insurance, and for people who do have insurance for prescriptions not covered by their particular plan.
The cards are part of a $400 million program including 1,400 counties, provided free of charge by the counties in partnership with the National Association of Counties. It is administered by CVS Caremark.
The cards can be picked up at County commission offices and County library branches, or printed from the Internet at www.caremark.com/naco. Residents can find the nearest participating pharmacy on the website or at 877-321-2652.
