Savings available on prescriptions
Anne Arundel County residents can get significant savings on prescription medications through the Department of Health's Prescription Discount Program.
Program participants can receive a discount card that offers an average discount of 25 percent. County residents enrolled in Medicare Part D can use the card for savings on prescriptions that are not covered by their Medicare Part D program.
The card also could provide discounts on routine vision and hearing care, which is not covered by Medicare.
This discount program, which should not be confused with insurance, has no enrollment cost or monthly fees.
Information: 410-222-4464 or www.aahealth.org. You also can call the Senior Health Insurance Program.
