The Town of Warrenton, Virginia has announced its participation in the National League of Cities (NLC) “My Healthy Hometown” Prescription Discount Program which allows them to offer all city residents the opportunity to save money with discounts on everyday prescription medicine costs.
The My Healthy Hometown Prescription Discount Program is available to all residents of the Town of Warrenton. By showing a My Healthy Hometown Prescription Discount Card at a participating retail pharmacy, a city resident can receive an average of 24%* off the retail price of prescription medicine. There are no annual limits placed on use, no forms to fill out, no waiting periods, no age or income requirements and no medical condition restrictions. Residents can obtain their free My Healthy Hometown Prescription Discount Card at Town Hall, the Warrenton Police Station, WARF and other locations around the town. They can also download a card online at www.nlc.org/resident-discount or obtain one by calling toll-free 1-888-620-1749.
Prescription discounts are good for the whole family and apply to pet medicines, too. Residents who do not have insurance can show their card to save on the cost of all prescription purchases. Those who do have insurance can show the card when their prescription medicines are not covered by their insurance plan.
Councilmember Sean Polster said, “Millions of Americans have experienced high costs at the pharmacy and Warrenton, Virginia residents are no exception. Just like with anything else we buy today, we must also be savvy consumers when buying our prescription medicine. This is why we are very happy to offer our residents the NLC My Healthy Hometown Prescription Discount Card. The card is a great help for all Town residents and their families to find some relief at the pharmacy counter and stay healthy and active right here in Warrenton, Virginia.”
Clarence E. Anthony, CEO and Executive Director, National League of Cities noted “We are pleased to have joined forces with the Town of Warrenton, Virginia to help their residents by offering a program that provides significant cost-savings and is easy to use. We hope the NLC My Healthy Hometown Prescription Discount Card program brings to residents welcome relief from the high cost of prescriptions.”
This program is using social media to spread the word and gauge satisfaction. Town residents can help other residents learn about the program and tell the Town about their experiences by sharing their discount stories using #MyHealthyHometown in their social media posts.
The My Healthy Hometown Prescription Discount Program is NOT insurance.
