Free Prescription Discount Card

The City of Chicago has launched a new program created to help area residents with the high cost of prescription medications. Sponsored by the National League of Cities (NLC), the free Prescription Discount Card program provides residents with a card that offers an average of 20 percent savings off the retail price of prescription medications.

The card can be used by those who do not have insurance or by those who have prescriptions not covered by insurance. The card can also be used on some pet medications and is accepted at 9 out of 10 pharmacies throughout Chicago.
This card can be used for the entire family.

More than 59,000 pharmacies are participating nationwide.
