1. Does my card work with my insurance plan? 

The Community Discount Drug Card was developed to help those without prescription drug insurance, but can still save you money if you have prescription coverage. Here's when you can use the card to likely save some extra money:

a. If a prescription drug you're taking is not covered by your insurance plan.

b. If you have a pet that's on prescription medicine that you're getting from your local pharmacy.

c. If you have a high deductible to meet before your insurance kicks in.

d. If you're in a "gap period" in your coverage (sometimes referred to as a "donut-hole"). [back to top]
