Calvert County residents continue to see savings with the NACo Prescription Drug Discount Card Program. Through the program, county residents have filled more than 11,000 prescriptions at discounts averaging more than 27 percent, for a total savings of more than $190,000. The cards may be used by all county residents, regardless of age, income or existing health coverage and are accepted at all of the county’s pharmacies. A national network of more than 59,000 participating retail pharmacies also honors the card.
There is no cost to county taxpayers for NACo and Calvert County to make these money-saving cards available to residents. Cards are available at all Calvert County libraries, senior centers, the Health Department and the Calvert County Department of Community Resources, located at 30 Duke Street in Prince Frederick.
Launched in 2004 as a 17-county pilot program, the NACo in partnership with CVS Caremark, introduced the NACo Prescription Drug Discount Card program. The program, offered exclusively to families residing in any participating NACo-member county, provides a discount on commonly prescribed medications for those that do not have prescription drug insurance.
