Program Description:

DC Rx Card is a free prescription assistance program available to everyone living in Washington, DC. The program was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents of DC gain access to significant savings on prescription medications at their local pharmacies. Those with insurance can also use the program for medications not covered through their pharmacy benefits.

The DC Rx Card is working with the DC Chamber of Commerce and Medical Society of DC 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 DC Rx 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, CVS/pharmacy, Kmart, Walmart, as well as over 56,000 participating pharmacies across the country. CVS/pharmacy is the program's preferred pharmacy. DC residents not able to obtain a member card can visit any preferred location and simply reference "DC Rx Card" to have a prescription processed through the program.

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