More Ohioans to Have Access to Prescription Savings

Ohio Drug Card announced today that CVS/pharmacy has been chosen as the preferred pharmacy for the free statewide prescription assistance drug card. Ohio residents that don't have access to a computer, and can't otherwise obtain a hard card, can now visit any CVS/pharmacy location to have their prescriptions processed through Ohio Drug Card. Ohioans can simply ask the pharmacist to process their prescription through the Ohio Drug Card.

Ohio Drug Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents afford their prescription medications. However, the program can also be used by people that have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Additionally, people with prescription coverage can use the program to get a discount on prescription drugs that are not covered by insurance.

Ohio Drug Card has helped residents save more than 11 million dollars since its inception in May 2008. You can search drug pricing and locate participating pharmacies at .
