The program is open to all residents of the state of New Hampshire.
New Hampshire Rx Card is the state's FREE prescription assistance program. In October 2009, the program was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured citizens of New Hampshire afford their prescription medications. The NH Rx Card provides free drug cards to all New Hampshire residents and offers savings of up to 80% on prescriptions at participating pharmacies. This program has no restrictions to membership, no income requirements, no age limitations, and there are no applications to fill out. There are currently more than 68,000 pharmacy locations across the country participating in the program. Those with insurance can also use the program for medications not covered through their pharmacy benefits.The New Hampshire Rx Card is now working with the New Hampshire Medical Society (NHMS) and the Business and Industry Association (New Hampshire's Statewide Chamber of Commerce) to create awareness for the program. Anyone not able to access the website, or otherwise obtain a member card, can visit any Shaw's Osco Pharmacy in New Hampshire and mention the New Hampshire Rx Card to the pharmacist.
The New Hampshire Rx Card is a simple solution to the confusing maze of discount programs that have appeared in recent years. Residents can print a free pre-activated card, locate participating pharmacies, and search drug pricing by visiting www.nhrxcard.com.
