Free prescription discount cards offer savings for county residents

Published Date

Vancouver, WA ‒ Clark County residents can save money on prescription drugs by using the county’s free prescription discount drug program, Public Health officials said Tuesday.

Since the program started in late 2006, county residents have used prescription discount cards to fill approximately 279,400 prescriptions. Residents received an average discount of nearly 27 percent on each prescription, which amounts to an average savings of $11.31 per prescription. From November 2006 through March 2016, Clark County residents saved a total of $3.16 million.

The National Association of Counties sponsors the prescription drug discount card program. The cards are free and may be used by all county residents regardless of age, income or existing health coverage. They are accepted at most pharmacies. A Spanish language version of the card is available.

Cards are available at city halls, libraries, participating pharmacies and C-Tran transit centers throughout the county. They also are available at these Clark County facilities:

  • Center for Community Health, 1601 E. Fourth Plain Blvd.
  • Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St.
  • Auto Licensing, 1408 Franklin St.

Residents can use the card any time insurance does not cover a prescription. There are no enrollment forms, restrictions or limits on how many times the card can be used.
