S.C. African American Chamber urges SC residents to obtain Prescription Drug Card
With much confusion still surrounding the Affordable Care Act, the S.C. African American Chamber of Commerce is urging South Carolinians to take advantage of a new health care savings program.
The Chamber is partnering with South Carolina Drug Card, a free program that reduces prescription drug costs for those who use the card.
The South Carolina Drug Card is sanctioned under the Prescription Assistance Program (PAP). It can result in savings of up to 75 percent on brand and generic medications.
“Understandably, many people still have a lot of questions about the Affordable Care Act,” said Stephen Gilchrist, the Chamber’s chairman. “And of course, a lot of folks who need assistance have been unable to enroll in the federal program. Whether they are insured, uninsured or under-insured, we want people to know they can achieve health care savings by obtaining this card.”
The South Carolina Drug Card is free and accepted at all major pharmacies, including CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, BI-LO, Kmart, Fred’s, Ingles, Kerr, Longs, Target and Walmart.
The S.C. African American Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the S.C. Drug Card to encourage people to use the cards.
The free cards are available at the South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce and can be ordered by calling (803) 661-2977 or (843) 259.2902.
All cards are pre-activated and can be used immediately.
