A new statewide discount prescription drug card program rolled out last week in Oregon to provide discounts on both brand and generic medications -- averaging 30 percent -- and with no restrictions to membership, such as income requirements, age limits. Additionally, there are no applications to fill out.
The Oregon Rx Card Program, which is administered by UNA Rx, a division of United Networks of America (UNA), was developed to help the uninsured and underinsured citizens of the state afford prescription medications. "This program is going to be an important tool to help the residents of Oregon offset rising health care costs," said program director Andrew Stocks.
Oregonians can download a free card by visiting the program’s Web site www.oregonrxcard.com or apply for it at any Safeway Pharmacy in Oregon. Safeway has been selected to serve as the preferred pharmacy for the program, but the Oregon Rx Card is accepted at over 50,000 national and regional pharmacies around the country.
