(Lincoln, NE) – A new statewide discount prescription drug card program called the Nebraska Rx Card is being launched today. The program, which offers free drug cards to all Nebraska residents, will provide savings of up to 75% on prescription drugs (savings should average roughly 30%). This program has no restrictions to membership, no income requirements, and no age limitations.

Nebraskans can download a "FREE" pharmacy discount card by visiting www.nebraskarxcard.com. Anyone not able to access the website or otherwise obtain a member card can simply visit any Hy-Vee Pharmacy location and ask the pharmacist to process their prescriptions through the Nebraska Rx Card. Nebraska Rx Card is currently accepted at over 50,000 pharmacy locations across the country.

Nebraska Rx Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents of Nebraska afford their prescription medications. However, this prescription assistance program can also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Additionally, people with insured prescription coverage can use this program to get discounts on non-formulary or non-covered medications.

The Nebraska Rx Card is a solution to the confusing maze of discount prescription programs that have appeared in recent years. Many of these programs only cover certain drugs, charge fees, and some have membership restrictions such as age and income limitations. Additional information on this Nebraska discount drug card program is available to all residents of Nebraska online at www.nebraskarxcard.com.
