Prescription Discount Card
â€śWe are pleased with the amount of savings residents received last year,â€ť says Dr. Patrice Harris, M.D., Director for the Fulton County Health Services. â€śIt is our hope that people will continue to use the card and that more will participate in the program.â€ť
The discount card is NOT insurance. Some discounts are more than 20 percent average and some are less, depending on the drug and quantity purchased. Cardholders can also save on pet prescriptions. More than 59,000 pharmacies nationwide accept the card.
The cards may be used by all county residents, regardless of age, income and existing health coverage. There is no enrollment form, no membership fee and no restrictions or limits on frequency of use. Cardholders and their family members may use the card any time their prescriptions are not covered by insurance.
Cards are available at the following County locations:
- Fulton County Senior Centers
- Fulton County Health Centers
- Fulton County Public Libraries
- Health Fairs
- Fulton County Community Health Centers
Residents can also pick up cards at various grocery stores, pharmacies and private businesses throughout the county.
