SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Academy of Physician Assistants (CAPA) today announced that it has partnered with NeedyMeds, a national non-profit organization, to launch a prescription drug discount card that will help Californians lower the costs of their medications and other health care services.

"CAPA and its physician assistant members are dedicated to expanding access to high-quality, cost-effective care for all California citizens. The CAPA drug discount card will help reduce out-of-pocket costs for California consumers, help patients stay healthy, and reduce long-term health costs for California families," said CAPA President Eric Glassman. "Difficult economic times are forcing many Californians to make wrenching and potentially devastating choices between taking their medications or feeding their families and paying rent. The CAPA drug discount card will help keep costs manageable while also helping to ensure that Californians stay on their doctor-prescribed treatment regimes."

The CAPA/NeedyMeds drug discount card is free and open to anyone. There are no income, insurance or residency requirements, and no fees or registration process is needed to use the card. One card can be shared with friends and family members, or patients can print their own. California residents can obtain a card from many local physician assistants, participating allied providers and health care groups, or by downloading a card from the CAPA website, www.capanet.org
