Oregon State Chamber to Distribute Free Drug Cards

June 27, 2009

Chambers to Help Oregon Rx Card Provide Prescription Assistance to All Residents
By Oregon State Chamber of Commerce

The Oregon State Chamber of Commerce (OSCC) announced a new partnership with the Oregon Rx Card today. The goal of the joint venture is to provide all Oregon residents with prescription assistance. OSCC will encourage local chambers of commerce, across the State, to distribute free discount prescription drug cards to residents. All Oregon residents are eligible for this program.

Oregon Rx Card was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents of Oregon afford their prescription medications. The program, which is free to all residents, will provide savings of up to 75% on prescription drugs (savings should average roughly 30%). Oregonians can download a “FREE” card by visiting www.oregonrxcard.com or www.oregonstatechamber.org. Anyone not able to access the website, or otherwise obtain a member card, can simply visit any Safeway Pharmacy location and ask the pharmacy process their prescription through the Oregon Rx Card program.

The program has no restrictions to membership, no income requirements, no age limitations and there are no applications to fill out. “The Oregon Rx Card has already had a tremendous impact on the residents of Oregon and, through our coalition of chambers, we should be able to help many more Oregonians afford their medications”, said Leslie Carnes, Chairman of OSCC Board of Directors.

“We are very fortunate to have the Oregon State Chamber of Commerce (OSCC) and their chamber members join us in this statewide prescription assistance initiative,” states Oregon Rx Card Program Director, Andrew Stocks. “This partnership should help us bring this program to many more people who need help across Oregon.”

Oregon Rx Card can also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Additionally, people who have prescription coverage can use this program for non-formulary or non-covered drugs. Oregon Rx Card is accepted at over 50,000 pharmacy locations across the country. Oregon residents can download a free card, search drug pricing, and locate participating pharmacies at www.oregonrxcard.com or www.oregonstatechamber.org.
