Montgomery Rx Discount Prescription Drug Cards Available Throughout County

Montgomery County residents who do not have prescription drug coverage are encouraged to use the Montgomery Rx prescription drug discount cards when filling prescriptions. The Montgomery Rx program, launched in December 2004, provides FREE prescription discount cards to County residents, through a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties. The cards are easy to use and offer average savings of 20 percent off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs. Since the program began, County residents have saved more than $2.6 million on the price of prescription drugs.

The cards may be used by all County residents, regardless of age, income, or existing health coverage, and are accepted at more than 120 pharmacies in Montgomery County.

Residents can find the FREE cards at all County libraries, County health and human services locations and at participating pharmacies throughout Montgomery County.
