Program Description:

Oklahoma Drug Card is the statewide free prescription assistance program available to all Oklahoma residents. The program, launched January of 2007, is used to help the uninsured and underinsured in Oklahoma afford their prescription medications. However, all residents are eligible to take advantage of this program. Those with insurance can use the program on non-covered medications. Additionally, Oklahoma Drug Card can be used to supplement most health insurance plans including Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and High Deductible Plans. It can also be used as a Medicare Part D supplement by providing discounts on non-covered drugs. So far, Oklahoma Drug Card has saved residents nearly $10 million on prescription drug costs.

Residents can download free cards by visiting www.oklahomadrugcard.com. Any Oklahoma resident, regardless of age or income level, is able to obtain cards with no applications required. Residents can save up to 75% on some medications, with an average savings of about 30%. The program is completely confidential, and all cards are pre-activated and do not expire. The program is accepted at Kmart, CVS/pharmacy, Target, Walgreens, Walmart, and at more than 56,000 participating national and regional pharmacies.

With today's cost of health care, the Oklahoma Drug Card is your simple solution to the high cost of prescription medications. To print a free, pre-activated card, locate a nearby participating pharmacy, and even search medication pricing, simply visit the website at www.oklahomadrugcard.com.
