Tennessee Drug Card Has Saved Residents Over $7.3 Million
Date:7/27/2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Program officials announced today that Tennessee residents have saved over $7.3 million on prescription medications through Tennessee Drug Card since the launch of the free statewide prescription assistance program. Tennessee Drug Card, which offers free discount drug cards to residents, was launched in May 2007. The program has no restrictions to membership, no income requirements, no age limitations, and there are no applications to fill out. Anyone interested in receiving a free card can visit www.TennesseeDrugCard.com.

"We are thrilled to have been able to provide prescription savings for so many Tennesseans to combat the rising cost of healthcare," said the program's director, Harry Sayle.

Tennessee Drug Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents of Tennessee afford their prescription medications. However, the program can also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Additionally, people who have prescription coverage can use this program for non-formulary or non-covered drugs. This includes people enrolled in Medicare Part D.

Tennesseans can download a "FREE" card by visiting www.TennesseeDrugCard.com. Anyone not able to access the website, or otherwise obtain a member card, can simply visit any CVS/pharmacy or Fred's Pharmacy location and ask the pharmacist to process their prescription through the Tennessee Drug Card. The card is accepted at over 50,000 pharmacies around the country. Tennessee residents can download a free card, search drug pricing, and locate participating pharmacies at www.TennesseeDrugCard.com.
