Prescription discount card available in Wythe County

By  | 

WYTHE CO., Va. (WDBJ7) People in Wythe County can now pay a little less for prescription medicine.

Everyone who lives within the county is eligible for this prescription discount card.

The county partnered with the National Association of Counties to bring the offer to the area.

The program is paid for with funds from the national program.

"It's something that we're very appreciative of. There are a lot of people in this community who don't have health insurance, don't have medical insurance and for those individuals this is certainly I believe a must have. So it may not always give you a discount but any discount is better than nothing," said Jeremy Farley, a Wythe County spokesperson.

The cards are free and available at the county administration building in Wytheville.

They're accepted at nine pharmacies in Wythe County.
