Relief from High Cost of Prescription Medicine for Residents of Lafayette
The City of Lafayette has joined a program, sponsored by the National League of Cities, to help provide residents with some relief from the high cost of prescription medications. Through the program, discount cards offering an average of 23 percent off the retail cost of prescriptions are available to city residents. There are no restrictions based on age, income level, or existing health coverage. The card can be used at approximately 78 pharmacies around the city, as well as more than 60,000 participating retail pharmacies across the country.
This card can help residents who are completely uninsured, as well as residents who have insurance but have specific medications that are not covered by their insurance.
