-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COUNTIES' "PRESCRIPTION DISCOUNT CARD PROGRAM" HAS ALREADY HELPED AMERICANS SAVE OVER 500-MILLION DOLLARS, ON THEIR PRESCRIPTION-MEDICATIONS.  SOMEONE WHO KNOWS, FIRST-HAND, JUST HOW IMPORTANT THOSE SAVINGS CAN BE IS TAMMY HARRIS--OF BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA'S "PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT"...

(HARRIS):
"
SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, I OVERHEARD A WOMAN WHO COULDN'T AFFORD A PRESCRIPTION THAT WASN'T COVERED BY HER INSURANCE.  SO, I GAVE HER MY 'BREVARD COUNTY CARD'--WHICH IS HOW OUR COUNTY PARTICIPATES IN THE 'PRESCRIPTION DISCOUNT CARD PROGRAM'.  WITH THAT ONE PURCHASE, THE CARD HELPED HER SAVE 50 DOLLARS.  EVEN THOUGH NOT EVERY PURCHASE WITH THE CARD WILL SAVE YOU THAT MUCH, THE SAVINGS DO ADD UP--WITH 24-PERCENT BEING THE AVERAGE SAVINGS, PER TRANSACTION.  BREVARD IS JUST ONE OF OVER 14-HUNDRED COUNTIES THAT CURRENTLY PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.  IF YOU DON'T ALREADY HAVE A CARD, YOU CAN GET ONE VERY EASILY--AND YOU CAN START USING IT RIGHT AWAY, AT A NETWORK OF OVER 65-THOUSAND PHARMACIES, NATIONWIDE.  IT'S ALSO COMPLETELY FREE FOR BOTH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO USE."

(CLOSE):
TO FIND OUT IF YOUR COUNTY PARTICIPATES IN THE PROGRAM--AND TO PRINT OUT YOUR OWN CARD--VISIT "NACO-R-X"-DOT-ORG; THAT'S "N-A-C-O-R-X"-DOT-ORG.
