Commonly Asked Questions
Q) Does this program work like the Prescription Drug Discount Program?
Yes. Based on the success of the Prescription Drug Discount Program, your County Legislators have developed this Program to allow you to receive discounts on physician, hospital and visions services. The program works exactly the same as the Prescription Drug Discount Program. When you receive any services from participating physicians, hospitals or vision providers, simply present the card at the time of service, pay your bill at the time of service, and receive discounts that can save you money and make it more affordable for you and your family to receive the medical care and prescription drugs that you need.
Q) For Prescription Drugs, do I still use my old card?
This new card replaces the old Prescription Drug Card. Please use this new card in place of your old Prescription Drug Card. If you have not used the old Prescription Drug Card, use this card to save money on the prescription drugs that you buy. You can also use this card to save money every time you go to a participating doctor, hospital or vision provider.
