Free Hawaii Discount Presciption Program Begins

(Honolulu) – Buying medication can be pricey, especially for those who are uninsured or whose health care plans do not cover drugs.

Now there's a free discounted medication program to help ease the costs.

The United Networks of America launched the Hawaii Rx Card Monday which is free and available to all residents. Cardholders save an average of 30 percent on drugs at more than 50,000 participating pharmacies across the country.

Cards can be printed online or picked up from distribution sites set up by the Hawaii Medical Association and the Hawaii Hotel Lodging Association. Online tools can be used to find nearby pharmacies as well as compare prices from participating pharmacies.
