Prescription Discounts in Columbus County

MAY 9, 2006 -- Prescription drugs can sometimes be hard to pay for, but now people in Columbus County are getting help. The county is launching a prescription drug discount program for all residents.

Everyone in Columbus County qualifies, even if they already have insurance. They can save at least 20% on all prescriptions that aren't covered by insurance plans. Residents do not have to be Medicare beneficiaries to be eligible.

Residents can pick up the prescription cards at many local businesses and can use them at any pharmacy in the county.
