Oregon Rx Card to Provide Discount Prescription Cards to Residents
SALEM, Ore. April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- A new statewide discount prescription drug card program, called Oregon Rx Card, is scheduled to officially launch today. Oregon Rx Card, which is free to all residents, will provide discounts on both Brand and Generic medications (average savings are estimated to be around 30%). There are no restrictions to membership, no income requirements, no age limit and no applications to fill out.
Oregonians can download a "FREE" card by visiting WWW.OREGONRXCARD.COM. Anyone not able to access the website, or otherwise obtain a member card, can visit any Safeway Pharmacy location in Oregon. Simply ask the pharmacist to process your prescription through the Oregon Rx Card in order to receive a discount. Safeway has been selected to serve as the preferred pharmacy for the program. Oregon Rx Card is accepted at over 50,000 national and regional pharmacies around the country.
The Oregon Rx Card Program was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured citizens of Oregon afford their prescription medications. "This program is going to be an important tool to help the residents of Oregon offset rising health care costs," states Program Director, Andrew Stocks. "This program couldn't have come at a better time as the economy continues to leave more people without jobs and benefits."
Oregon Rx Card is a solution to the confusing maze of discount programs that have appeared in recent years. Many of these programs only cover certain drugs, charge fees, and some have membership restrictions such as age and income requirements. This program is administered by UNA Rx, which is a division of United Networks of America (UNA).
