Free prescription card can save up to 75% on medicine

The Oregon State Chamber of Commerce (OSCC) announced a new partnership with the Oregon Rx Card. The goal of the joint venture is to provide all Oregon residents with prescription assistance. OSCC will encourage local chambers of commerce, across the State, to distribute free discount prescription drug cards to residents. All Oregon residents are eligible for this program.
 

Oregon Rx Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured
residents of Oregon afford their prescription medications. The program,
which is free to all residents, will provide savings of up to 75% on
prescription drugs (savings should average roughly 30%). Oregonians can
download a "FREE" card by visiting www.oregonrxcard.com or
www.oregonstatechamber.org. Anyone not able to access the website, or
otherwise obtain a member card, can visit any Safeway Pharmacy and ask
the pharmacy to process their prescription through the Oregon Rx Card
program.
   
The program has no restrictions to membership, no
income requirements, no age limitations and there are no applications
to fill out. "The Oregon Rx Card has already had a tremendous impact on
the residents of Oregon and, through our coalition of chambers, we
should be able to help many more Oregonians afford their medications",
said Leslie Carnes, Chairman of OSCC Board of Directors.
   
"We
are very fortunate to have the Oregon State Chamber of Commerce (OSCC)
and their chamber members join us in this statewide prescription
assistance initiative," states Oregon Rx Card Program Director, Andrew
Stocks.    Oregon Rx Card can also be used by people who have health
insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in
many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans.
Additionally, people who have prescription coverage can use this
program for non-formulary or non-covered drugs. Oregon Rx Card is
accepted at over 50,000 pharmacy locations across the country.
   
Oregon
residents can download a free card, search drug pricing, and locate
participating pharmacies at  www.oregonrxcard.com or
www.oregonstatechamber.org.
