Prescription drug savings available for residents


The NACo Prescription (Free) Discount Card is provided to residents in a joint effort between Citrus County and the National Association of Counties (NACo). County residents without prescription coverage can use this program.

Even if an individual has prescription insurance coverage, they may still benefit from the discount card since it may save money on prescriptions that your existing plan does not cover.

Just remember to present the card when you pick up your prescription to get the best possible price available.

It’s easy to use. Simply print a card or pick one up at a local library or community center and present the discount card at a participating retail pharmacy along with the prescription(s), and save an average of 24 percent on prescription drugs. There are no limits on how many times the card can be used. This card can be used for the whole family, including pets. If a pet is prescribed a medication that is also used for humans, ask your veterinarian for a prescription to use at a participating pharmacy. There are no claim forms to fill out and no membership fees.

Residents can visit www.caremark.com/naco to learn about the discount program, print out a personalized ID card for themselves, or access other program tools.  Savings are available immediately at any participating pharmacy. There is absolutely no obligation or cost.
