Prescription Drug Discounts For Yavapai County Residents
Yavapai County Discount Cards for prescription drugs are now available at many pharmacies across the county.
While there are no age or income restrictions to use one of these cards, a person must be a Yavapai County resident. Cardholder savings can start immediately. Cardholders may share the same card with their family members. Use the card whenever insurance will not pay for the medication.
"This discount program can help our residents afford the medications they need. Residents can use the cards over and over at participating pharmacies, any time they need to fill a prescription," says Yavapai County Community Health Services (YCCHS) Director Robert Resendes. "There is no enrollment form and no limit on frequency of use."
Discounts will vary but, on average, offer the cardholder a savings of 20 percent off regular retail prices for prescription drugs. The card also offers an average savings of 34 percent off generic medicine compared to regular retail prices. The card is not insurance.
The Yavapai County Discount Card Program is available in partnership with the National Association of Counties. A nationwide network of more than 57,000 participating retail pharmacies will also honor the card. Participating pharmacies can also accept the card to discount the cost of certain pet medications. The Yavapai County discount cards are available at about 25 participating pharmacies located in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, Cottonwood and Sedona.
For added convenience, the cards are now available at Yavapai County Community Health Centers in Prescott, Prescott Valley and Cottonwood, and at public libraries in Chino Valley, Clarkdale, Prescott, Prescott Valley and Sedona.
Residents can also pick up a card through several organizations, which are collaborating with YCCHS to make the cards available to the public.
