Yavapai County rolled out a prescription discount program two years ago spearheaded by the Board of Supervisors and Board of Health. It is administered by Yavapai County Community Health Services.
Last month, residents used the program to reach a cumulative savings of $1 million, said YCCHS Director Robert Resendes.
“Best of all, there is no cost to county taxpayers for to make these money-saving cards available to our residents. The cards may be used by all county residents, regardless of age, health, income, or existing health coverage, and are accepted at 20 county pharmacies,” said Terri Farneti, program coordinator. “There is no enrollment form, no membership fee and no restrictions or limits on frequency of use.”
