Date:10/14/2011

YAMHILL COUNTY, Ore., Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Yamhill 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, all three County Commissioners are happy to be able to provide them with the Prescription Discount Card," said Commissioner Kathy George. "This card offers residents - both insured and uninsured - significant savings on prescription medications."

The free discount cards may be used by all Yamhill County residents, regardless of age, income or existing health coverage. The Yamhill County Prescription Discount Cards are currently available at the Yamhill County Public Health Clinic and the Board of Commissioners Office. 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 NACo President Lenny Eliason, Commissioner, Athens County, Ohio. "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
