City of Woodinville Brings Free Prescription Discount Card Program to Residents

Woodinville has launched a program to help provide non-insured residents with some relief from the high cost of prescription medications. Through the program, sponsored by the National League of Cities (NLC), the city is making free prescription discount cards available to city residents. The discount cards offer city residents an average of 23 percent savings off the retail price of prescription medications.

The NLC Prescription Discount Card is available to all residents of Woodinville and has no restrictions based on a resident’s age, income level, or existing health coverage. The card can be used at most Woodinville pharmacies. The card is not insurance, and cannot be used in conjunction with personal insurance programs. This card helps residents who are completely uninsured, as well as residents who have insurance, but have specific medications that are not covered by their insurance.

Residents can obtain a free NLC Prescription Discount Card in a number of ways. They can print them from the Internet at www.caremark.com/nlc or can get a card at Woodinville City Hall or the Carol Edwards Center. Residents can also use www.caremark.com/nlc to locate the nearest participating pharmacy or call toll-free at 1.888.620.1749 for assistance with the program.

CVS Caremark administers the NLC Prescription Discount Card program.
