New Prescription Discount Card

(Atlanta) – Georgia residents can now get discounts on prescription medications thanks to the new Georgia Drug Card. It's free, downloadable, and requires no enrollment forms. WABE's Martha Dalton has more.

John Cenerazzo is the Assistant Vice President for Development of the Georgia Drug Card. He says anyone can use it:

"It is launched for the uninsured, underinsured, and also to help residents of Georgia that have insurance, but have medications that aren't covered by insurance companies."

Cenerazzo says unlike some other programs, there are no age or income requirements. And he says on average, patients will save about 30 on prescription costs.

Spokesman Brian Oliver says tax payers aren't footing the bill for the plan.

"The program is completely funded through the pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies."

Oliver says it's easy to get a card. You can download one from their website at: If you don't have Internet access, he says, they're also available at medical clinics and hospitals.
