Discount Prescription Drug Program Flourishes

In two years, Hamilton County’s discount card for presciption drugs has been used by more than 17,000 people to buy 40,000 prescriptions. Those people have saved an average of $9.85 per purchase — a grand total of more than $394,000 in savings!

The Hamilton County Rx card is accepted at most local pharmacies and is perfect for:

— County residents who are uninsured.
— County residents who are insured but a drug may not be covered on their insurance plan.
— County residents who must buy human drugs for their pets.

For more information, visit or call 946-1010. Visit our agency at 222 E. Central Parkway to pick up your card today.


Best month for discount card

More than 1,600 prescriptions were filled through the county’s Prescription Drug Discount Card Program in July. This is our best month yet.

Users averaged $9.41 in savings per prescription for a total of more than $15,000 in savings. At a time when the economy is taking its toll on this community, I am extremely excited that we have been able to find a way to help Hamilton County residents save a few dollars.

Since its inception in mid January, more than 8,400 prescriptions have been filled through the program, for a total savings of nearly $80,000.
