St. Louis Park and the National League of Cities Bring Free Prescription Discount Card Program to Residents
Date:8/11/2011

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn., Aug. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The City of St. Louis Park today announced it will launch a program this Saturday to help provide residents with some relief from the high cost of prescription medications. Through the program – sponsored by the National League of Cities (NLC) – the City is making free prescription discount cards available to city residents. The discount cards offer city residents an average of 23 percent savings off the retail price of prescription medications.

The NLC Prescription Discount Card can be used by all residents of St. Louis Park and has no restrictions based on a resident's age, income level, or existing health coverage. The card can be used at approximately 10 pharmacies around the city, as well as at more than 60,000 participating retail pharmacies across the country.

"Given the current economic climate, where many people need to watch what they spend, we are happy to partner with the National League of Cities to make this prescription discount card available to our residents," said Tom Harmening, City Manager, St. Louis Park. "This card helps residents who are completely uninsured, as well as residents who have insurance, but have specific medications that are not covered by their insurance. In both scenarios, residents experience significant savings on prescription medications not covered by health plans."

Residents can obtain a free NLC Prescription Discount Card in a number of ways. They can print them from the Internet at www.caremark.com/nlc or can get a card at the local public library, City Hall, police station, the St. Louis Park Municipal Service Center, the Westwood Hills Nature Center, or the Rec Center. Residents can also use www.caremark.com/nlc to locate the nearest participating pharmacy or call toll-free at 1.888.620.1749 for assistance with the program.
