The Colorado Drug Card is working with the Colorado Medical Society, Denver Metro Chamber, and Colorado Academy of Physician Assistants to expand card distribution sites throughout the state. No personal information is required to join the program and there are no enrollment forms, no eligibility requirements, and no restrictions of any kind. The Colorado Drug Card provides discounts on both brand and generic medication with an average savings around 30%, with some discounts as high as 75%. The card is accepted at Walgreens, Safeway, Albertsons Sav-on, Target, CVS/pharmacy, Kmart, Walmart, as well as over 56,000 participating pharmacies across the country. Safeway is the program's preferred pharmacy. Colorado residents not able to obtain a member card can visit any preferred location and simply reference "Colorado Drug Card" to have a prescription processed through the program.

The Colorado Drug Card is a simple solution to the confusing maze of discount programs that have appeared in recent years. Residents of Colorado can obtain a pre-activated free Rx card, search drug pricing, and locate participating pharmacies by visiting www.ColoradoDrugCard.com.
