Hawaii residents can now get discounts on prescription drugs through a statewide program being promoted by the Hawaii Medical Association.

Alix Lee Cousins, the program's development director, says most drugs will be eligible for some kind of discount, with savings averaging around 30 percent.

The Hawaii Rx Card program was launched this month to help uninsured residents, but all residents can access it for free.

The card can be printed out from the Web site www.hawaiirxcard.com. The program is also being promoted by doctors and by the Hawaii Hotel & Lodging Association.

The program has no enrollment forms, no restrictions to participation, no income requirements, no waiting periods, no age restrictions, and no annual or lifetime limits.
