Statements Concerning the NLC 'Prescription Discount Card Program'

Through its "Prescription Discount Card Program", the National League of Cities (NLC) is helping residents cope with the high cost of prescription medications--at no cost to its member cities.  Now, residents who are without health insurance or a traditional pharmacy-benefit plan--or who have prescriptions that aren't covered by insurance--can receive savings on their prescriptions.

The program--which is administered by CVS Caremark--can save residents an average of 23 percent off the full retail cost of prescription medication.  There's no enrollment form, no membership fee, and no restrictions or limits on the frequency of use.  The discount card is accepted at more than 65,000 pharmacies nationwide--including all major pharmacy chains and most local independent pharmacies.

For more information--including a list of participating pharmacies--visit

We are offering soundbites concerning how various NLC-member cities--and their residents--are benefitting from the "Prescription Discount Card Program".  The statements are only available in mp3PRO format.
