The residents of Georgia will soon find that getting help to lower their prescription drug costs can be found right around the corner. Program officials announced that the Medical Association of Georgia (MAG), Georgia Rural Health Association (GRHA) and Georgia State Medical Association, Inc. have officially agreed to expand card distribution sites for Georgia's free statewide prescription assistance program.

Together, Georgia Drug Card, MAG, GRHA and Georgia State Medical Association, Inc. are currently educating all clinics, hospitals, county health departments and urgent care clinics throughout the State about the program. Additionally, Georgia Drug Card is working with over 87% of the hospitals in Georgia to help case managers and social workers to provide uninsured and underinsured patients with affordable prescription medications.

Georgia Drug Card, which is open to all Georgia residents, is a prescription assistance program that provides savings of up to 75% on prescription drugs at most retail pharmacy locations. The program was launched in July 2010 and has already saved Georgia residents millions of dollars on their prescription medications.

"The best thing about the Georgia Drug Card is that it's free and saves those who don't have health insurance money on their prescriptions. It is hassle free and accepted at most major pharmacies, states Matt Caseman, Executive Director of GRHA. "The Georgia Rural Health Association is proud to partner with Georgia Drug Card, which should be commended for the great service they are providing our state."

Georgians can get a free prescription drug card by visiting one of the many card distribution sites around the state or by downloading a free card at www.GeorgiaDrugCard.com. Anyone not able to access the website, or otherwise obtain a member card, can visit any CVS/pharmacy location in Georgia. Simply ask the pharmacy to process your prescription through the Georgia Drug Card.
