Prescription Discount Card Program

Co-sponsored by the League of California Cities and National League of Cities, the Prescription Discount Card Program helps residents within California cope with the high cost of prescription medications. By participating in this program, individuals and families within your city who are without health insurance, a traditional pharmacy benefit plan, or have prescriptions not covered by insurance can receive savings on their prescriptions.

The Cal Cities/NLC Prescription Discount Card program, administered by CVS Caremark, can save your residents an average of 23% off the full retail cost of prescription medication. There is no enrollment form, no membership fee and no restrictions or limits on the frequency of use. The discount card is accepted at more than 65,000 pharmacies nationwide, including all major pharmacy chains and most local independent pharmacies. 

There is no cost to your city to offer the program to your residents. Participating cities are provided with customized discount cards with the city name and logo as well as sample press releases and a sample web page to promote the program.  Your city receives a monthly report from NLC with data on the savings to residents.
