STAFF REPORT

The City of San Marcos recently launched a program in partnership with the National League of Cities offering free prescription drug cards to San Marcos residents. No enrollment form is required and there is no membership fee. City residents and their family members can use the card any time their prescriptions are not covered by insurance.

The discount card may be used by all residents of San Marcos at participating pharmacies and has no restrictions based on the age, income level or existing health coverage. The discount cards offer city residents an average savings of 20 percent off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs.

The city is making the free discount cards available at city offices, including City Hall, Library, Grant Harris Jr., Building, Electric Utility, Women Infants and Children, Activity Center and Public Services buildings.

City residents can call toll-free 1-888-620-1749 or visit www.caremark.com/nlc for more information about the program.
