Herkimer County Rx Discount Card

 

 

May 26, 2009

According to Herkimer County Legislature Chairman Raymond Smith, residents can begin using their new prescription discount cards at pharmacies across the county on May 26,2009.  The Herkimer County Discount Prescription Drug Program was developed by the County Legislature to help pay the cost of prescription medicines. “I encourage everyone to use this program,” said Legislature Chairman Smith. “It’s especially beneficial to people who don’t have prescription coverage, such as those who are self-employed. However, any Herkimer County resident, regardless of age, income, or existing health coverage, can participate. There is no cost to county government or county residents. ”Herkimer County has partnered with ProAct, Inc., a regional pharmacy benefit management company, to provide the prescription drug discount program. Participants can save 10 to 20 percent on brand name prescriptions and 20 to 50 percent on generic drugs. The cards were mailed to all households in the county.
