Connecticut Drug Card, Powered by United Networks of America, Supports Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
NORTH HAVEN, Conn., Connecticut State Medical Society (CSMS) has officially partnered with the Connecticut Drug Card in order to provide a FREE prescription assistance program to its patients, employees, and others. The Connecticut Drug Card was launched in an effort to make prescription medications more affordable for the uninsured, as well as the underinsured. The Connecticut Drug Card can be used for savings of up to 75% on prescription medications at more than 68,000 pharmacies nationwide.
"I believe this is an easy and innovative solution that may help Connecticut citizens get the prescription drugs they need at a cost they can afford," said Jeffrey Gordon, M.D., President of Connecticut State Medical Society.
The card discounts both brand and generic prescription medications for those individuals without prescription coverage. Additionally, individuals who have prescription drug coverage may still qualify and receive discounts on medications not covered by their insurance plan. In order to obtain a card, simply print one at www.CSMS.org or www.ctdrugcard.com.
You can also have a supply of custom cards mailed directly to your office at no cost by contacting the program's development director, Chez Ciccone, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-877-202-2214.
