Every day, our journalism dismantles barriers and shines a light on the critical overlooked and under-reported issues important to all North Carolinians.

Before you go …

Thanks for reading. If you like what you are reading and believe in independent, nonpartisan journalism like ours—journalism the way it should be—please contribute to keep us going. Reporting like this isn’t free to produce and we cannot do this alone. Thank you!

From the Web: Buncombecounty.org:

The County’s prescription drug discount program allows all County residents, regardless of income, age, insurance, or health status to participate. Citizens can save an average of 38 percent on the cost of prescription drugs. Even pets and family members living outside the County are able to take part in the program.

The card is available free of charge and may be used at all pharmacy chains and most independent pharmacies in Buncombe County and includes over 60,000 drugs in its formulary.

There are no eligibility requirements to use the drug card and the plan comes at NO expense to Buncombe County.
The card is available at participating pharmacies, all County offices and branch libraries or online at http://coast2coastrx.com/buncombenc.
