Prescription Drug Discount Cards
United Way of Bedford County partnered with Membership Services Corp. in May 2006 to distribute free prescription drug discount cards to assist families who otherwise could not afford much needed prescription drugs. The cards can reduce prescription drug costs by an average of 35 percent. The cards can be obtained from local participating partner agencies or by contacting United Way of Bedford County. Most pharmacies accept the prescription drug discount cards. They have no usage limits, age requirements or registration forms. As of December 2014, over 600 cards have been distributed to assist families in Bedford County since its inception. Over 50 cards were distributed in 2014.
According to a report received from Membership Services Corp, the prescription drug discount cards have saved Bedford County residents over $181,000 since the partnership began.
