New Drug Card Offers Big Script Savings

(Central Ohio) – You likely have a wallet full of discount cards for your favorite stores.

Adding a new one to the mix will help your family save money on prescriptions.

The Ohio Drug Card offers Ohioans an average savings of 30 percent on drug prescriptions, but NBC 4's Matt Alvarez said the savings can be as high as 75 percent on some drugs.

There are no restrictions to membership, no income restrictions and no age limit. There aren't any applications to fill out, either.

The card was designed to help the uninsured or underinsured but can be used by those with insurance and no prescription coverage and also by those with prescription coverage for noncovered drugs.

Use the card at Kmart Pharmacy, Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS pharmacy, Meijer and Discount Drug Mart.

The card even covers some pet medications, Alvarez reported.

Search keyword "drug card" on www.nbc4i.com for a full list of covered drugs and to download a card online.

Those without Internet access can visit a Kmart Pharmacy.
