The National Association of Counties (NACo) has some new and old tools to save the counties money. The NACo Prescription Discount Card Program is available through a partnership with CVS Caremark and provides a FREE prescription discount card exclusively for NACo member counties to offer to their residents. The card will give discounts on prescriptions for residents who are uninsured, underinsured, seniors and pet owners in the county. The card can even be used to help inmates get discounts on prescriptions.
Counties benefit from the program by being able to offer their county residents a no-cost alternative to paying full price for prescriptions. Counties may choose an optional marketing reimbursement fee and counties may also feature their county logo or seal on the front of the card. Residents benefit from the program by saving up to 75% off of their prescriptions with an average savings of 24%. There is no cost for a resident as well as no forms to fill out, no age or income requirements and no medical condition restrictions.
The NACo Health Discount Program is a BRAND NEW health discount card exclusively for NACo member counties to offer to their residents. The program, which is also marketed by CVS Caremark, includes discounts on vision care, LASIK & PRK vision procedures, hearing aids & screenings, prepaid lab work, prepaid diagnostic imaging, diabetic supplies and prescriptions for residents who are uninsured, underinsured, seniors and pet owners in the county. Memberships are available on a monthly or annual subscription basis for both individuals and families* and discounts are available immediately upon enrollment. To learn more, please call 1-888-407-6226 and ask for membership.
Counties benefit from the program by being able to offer their residents an affordable alternative to paying full price for health care. Counties may provide customized resident materials with their county logo or seal on the front of their membership card as well as on the “Member Guide” which each member receives upon enrollment (explaining how to use each benefit and take advantage of their member discounts).
Residents benefit from the program by saving on auxiliary health care services that are not currently included in the Affordable Care Act. There are no annual limits placed on use, no forms to fill out, no waiting periods, no age or income requirements and no medical condition restrictions. The cost to join for individuals is just $6.95 a month or $69 a year. For families it is just $8.95 a month or $79 a year.
And finally, through a partnership with Careington International Corporation, NACo is pleased to introduce the NACo Dental Discount Program! This simple discount card can help the residents of NACo member counties save 5% to 50% on dental care, and 20% on orthodontics. The card is for people who are uninsured but can also complement health insurance plans or work with health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts and health reimbursement arrangements.
