NORMAN — Cleveland County commissioners have announced a new program to help residents deal with the high cost of prescription medicines.
Through a Partnership with the National Association of Counties, the FREE Prescription Discount Card program provides a card that can save consumers an average of 24 percent off the retail price of prescription drugs, Commissioner Rod Cleveland said.
The free discount cards can be used by all Cleveland County residents, regardless of age, income or existing health coverage, including residents who do not have insurance and people with prescriptions not covered by insurance, Cleveland said.
The card also can be used on some pet medications, he said.
