Cheshire Residents Saved Over $34,000 with
Free Prescription Drug Discount Program
The Town of Cheshire, through its association with the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM), has helped Cheshire residents save over $34,000 in the first two and a half years of the CCM free prescription discount card program, saving uninsured and underinsured residents 46% on prescription medicines.
These free Prescription Discount Cards can be used by all residents regardless of age, income or existing health coverage. The program provides discounts on any prescriptions not covered by insurance. There are no costs to either the participating municipalities or their residents. There are no enrollment forms, membership fees, restrictions or limits on frequency of use for residents. The discount cards are widely accepted at all national chain pharmacies and most local independent pharmacies.
Discount cards may also be used to save on human-based medications prescribed for family pets, if the prescription can be filled at a participating retail pharmacy. Discounts are also offered on other medical services including vision, Lasik and hearing services. Visit www.CTRxDiscountCard.com for more details, including a pharmacy look-up and drug price comparison tool.
Residents can obtain a card easily by visiting www.CTRxDiscountCard.com, and selecting Cheshire from the drop-down menu. The Town also has cards available in the Human Services Department, the Cheshire Senior Center and at participating Cheshire pharmacies.
