October 22, 2009 by cpehrson

A new discount drug card program for Salt Lake County residents was announced this week by Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon and the Salt Lake Valley Health Department Executive Director Gary Edwards. 

This free discount card is  available to all SLV residents, insured or not, at no added cost to taxpayers. There are no claim forms to fill out nor annual fee to pay, and no income or age requirements.  This program has unlimited useage for entire families.

With this discount card, consumers will save an average of 20% off the pharmacy’s regular price on all commonly prescribed prescriptions and an average of 50% off on 90-day supplies of select generics through mail service. Savings are also available on high-tech and injectable drugs through specialty pharmacies.

 Many pharmacies in the Salt Lake Valley will accept the Discount Prescription card including Walgreens, Wal-Mart and Rite Aide.
