Otero County Introduces Prescription Discount Card to Help Alleviate High Costs
Date:8/15/2011

OTERO COUNTY, N.M., Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Otero County today launched a new program to help county residents deal with the high cost of prescription medications. Through a partnership with the National Association of Counties (NACo), the free Prescription Discount Card program provides area residents with a card that offers an average of 24 percent savings off the retail price of prescription medications.

The card can be used by those who do not have insurance or by those who have prescriptions not covered by insurance. The card can also be used on some pet medications and is accepted at 9 out of 10 pharmacies throughout the region.

"Recognizing the difficulties many of our residents face when trying to pay for their health care needs, we are happy to be able to provide them with the Prescription Discount Card," said Dawn Huffmon, Secretary, Otero County. "This card offers residents - both insured and uninsured - significant savings on prescription medications."

The free discount cards may be used by all Otero County residents, regardless of age, income or existing health coverage. The Otero County Prescription Discount Cards are available at various medical facilities throughout Otero County and the Otero County Administration Building. The discount cards can also be printed from the Internet at www.caremark.com/naco. Residents can also locate the nearest participating pharmacy from the same website or call toll-free at 1.877.321.2652 for assistance with the program.

"We're pleased to work with counties around the country to bring this important program to their residents," said Huffmon. "By working with our member counties, we are better positioned to develop programs that specifically target the needs of our nation's counties. The Prescription Discount Card program is just one example of what we hope to accomplish."

Otero County will be joining more than 1,400 count
