Sonoma County has joined with NACo, the National Association of Counties to bring the NACo prescription drug discount program to our community. NaCo, in parthership with CVS/Caremark Rx, offers this program to more than 900 participating counties nationwide.
The NACo prescription drug discount program is called "Sonoma County Rx" in our county. This program helps consumers save money on their prescriptions that are not covered by insurance. The free cards are available at many distribution sites in the county (pdf), and may be used at any participating retail pharmacies in the county. The Sonoma Rx prescription discount card is not insurance.
Go to any of the distribution sites in the county (pdf) to pick up a free card.
The average savings is about 22 percent. Savings range from 13 to 34 percent, depending on the medication. Sonoma Rx cardholders can save even more money, up to 50 percent, by using the mail service for a three-month supply. Discounts are also available for pet prescriptions purchased through retail pharmacies.
The Sonoma Rx prescription discount card is provided free to all residents of Sonoma County. The entire family can use one card. If you lose your card, just pick up another card from any one of the many distribution sites in the county.
There are no enrollment fees, no forms to fill out, and no age or income requirements. Just take the card to any participating pharmacy, which is most retail pharmacies in Sonoma County, and receive a discount on the purchase of your prescription. The card covers virtually all commonly prescribed medications. But remember, the discount applies only to prescription medications not covered by your insurance.
