New Hampshire Rx Card Launching Statewide
Date:10/5/2009

CONCORD, N.H., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A new statewide prescription assistance program is set to launch across New Hampshire tomorrow. The New Hampshire Rx Card will offer savings of up to 75% on prescription drugs at more than 50,000 retail pharmacies across the country. All New Hampshire residents are eligible to receive a free card through this program. New Hampshire residents can download a "FREE" card by visiting www.nhrxcard.com. Residents can also obtain cards at various health centers, clinics, businesses, and other card distribution sites that are being set up across the state.

This statewide initiative is receiving support from organizations such as The New Hampshire Medical Society (NHMS). "We see the New Hampshire Rx Card as a way to help our patients with the high cost of prescription drugs," said NHMS President, Dr. Charles Blitzer. The New Hampshire Medical Society, which was formed in 1791, is the largest physician membership organization in New Hampshire.

Business and Industry Association, New Hampshire's Statewide Chamber of Commerce, will be working with program officials to create awareness for the program and to help set up card distribution sites. "The New Hampshire Rx Card is a great option for individuals without health insurance, or those with health insurance plans that lack a comprehensive prescription drug benefit," said Jim Roche, President of BIA. "This prescription drug discount program couldn't come at a better time for New Hampshire citizens who are struggling through a difficult economy."

The New Hampshire Rx Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured citizens of New Hampshire 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 to get a discount on non-formulary or non-covered drugs. Anyone not able to access the website, or otherwise obtain a member card, can visit any Shaw's Osco Pharmacy in New Hampshire.
