A new prescription discount card is now available for free to Cook County. Any county resident without prescription coverage can use this program. Even if you have insurance for prescription drugs, you may still benefit from the discount card, since it may save you money on prescription drugs your existing plan does not cover. Card users can typically save 20% off the pharmacy’s regular price on all commonly prescribed prescriptions. Go to cookcountyil.gov for further information on obtaining a card, or call 877-321-2652. Mount Prospect residents can pick up a discount card by going to the Human Services Department at Mount Prospect Village Hall, 50 S. Emerson Street. Call for more information: 847 870-5680.
