North Carolina Drug Card Media Center
The North Carolina Drug Card is a statewide prescription assistance program that offers free discount drug cards to all North Carolina residents. The program provides discounts on both brand and generic medications with an average savings of around 30 percent. There are no restrictions to membership, income requirements, or age. Everyone is eligible to receive savings. This program may be beneficial for those physicians who see patients who are uninsured or underinsured.
The North Carolina Drug Card can even be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Individuals with prescription coverage may also use the program to get a discount on prescription drugs that are not covered by insurance.
There are currently more than 56,000 pharmacy locations across the country participating in the program, including all major pharmacy chains. To learn more about the program, click here.
