The program is open to all residents of the state of Illinois.
Illinois Rx Card is the state's free prescription assistance program designed to help the uninsured and underinsured afford their prescription medications. Residents, including those with insurance to assist with non-covered prescriptions, have been utilizing the program since its launch in May 2011.
Endorsed by the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois and the Northern Illinois Diabetes Foundation, Illinois Rx Card has saved residents over $171 million on prescription medications. The card is pre-activated, with no eligibility requirements, and completely confidential. Savings can be as high as 80% on some medications.
