Madison, Wis. (Jan. 9, 2019) – Patients who need help with the cost of prescription medications can now get a free prescription savings card through the state’s largest association of physicians.

The Wisconsin Medical Society is making available the Wisconsin Drug Card, a discount prescription medication card free to all Wisconsin residents. The discount card generates savings of up to 75 percent on prescription drugs at more than 68,000 pharmacies nationwide.
Wisconsin Drug Card helps uninsured and under-insured residents afford prescription medications. This resource has already saved Wisconsin residents more than $67 million since inception.

“Wisconsin Medical Society members are committed to providing the best possible care to their patients and making available the best programs that provide the biggest impact,” said Wisconsin Medical Society CEO Bud Chumbley, MD, MBA. “Wisconsin Drug Card is a prescription savings program that can help make prescriptions more affordable for those in need.”

Wisconsin Drug Card discounts are available to patients whose health insurance coverage does not include prescription benefits. Those who do have prescription coverage with their health insurance can use this program to get discounts on medications that are not covered by their insurance plan. All Wisconsin residents are eligible regardless of their current prescription coverage benefits.

Wisconsin residents can print a free card, search medication pricing, and locate participating pharmacies by clicking here or by visiting www.WisconsinDrugCard.com.
