Marysville, National League of Cities team up to offer Prescription Discount Card

MARYSVILLE – In partnership with the National League of Cities, the city of Marysville starting Dec. 30 will offer a discount card that gives residents an average 20 percent savings on prescription drugs. Anyone without health insurance or a traditional benefits plan, and those with prescriptions not covered by insurance, qualify.

This Prescription Discount Card is made available to residents by the city of Marysville in collaboration with the National League of Cities and is made possible through Marysville’s membership in NLC.

“In today’s economic climate, when many people are watching what they spend, the NLC prescription discount card will offer significant savings on the purchase of prescription medications for our residents,” said Mayor Dennis Kendall. “Regardless of whether a person has prescription coverage, this program can make it simpler for our residents to afford the drugs they need to deal with short-term illnesses or stay healthy by managing a chronic condition.”

This money-saving card is free to all Marysville residents, regardless of age, income or existing health insurance. The program is administered by CVS Caremark. Using this card can save residents an average 20 percent off the regular retail price of prescription drugs at participating pharmacies, City Finance Director Sandy Langdon says.

The card is good at participating pharmacies in Marysville such as Bartell’s, Rite Aid, Everett Clinic, grocer pharmacies and most local independents including Hilton and Quil Ceda pharmacies.
