Carroll County Launches Dental Discount Program

As was reported in a previous MACo blog post, the National Association of Counties (NACo)  has unveiled its pilot Dental Discount Program to residents in 38 member counties nationwide.  The cards that cost $59 a year for individuals or $69 for families, provide uninsured individuals with savings on a number of dental services. The Carroll County Board of Commissioners  announced today that they were selected to participate in this NACo pilot program. In a press release Carroll  County Board of Commissioners President Julia W. Gouge stated,

“Five years ago, I introduced the NACo Prescription Drug Card Program to Carroll County. Since then, our residents have saved over $1.7 million on their prescriptions. That’s why, as a  NACo board member, I started asking about the dental program early on.  I am proud to say that out of 3,068 counties in the United States, we are one of the 38 pilot counties for the program. This card is just one more opportunity for our citizens to save money, and it is easy to use. We have several participating dentists within the County. You can simply make an appointment with one of these dentists, present your card, and start saving. These programs are part of what makes Carroll County a great place to live, to work, and to play.”
