COLUMBUS, Ind. — Bartholomew County residents can now take advantage of a new, no-cost discount prescription program for users that last year saved residents in other Indiana counties $600,000 in June and more than $700,000 in July.
The prescription program is part of an annual $1,500 fee that Bartholomew County pays for membership in the National Association of Counties. The national organization had been offering the benefit to Bartholomew County for at least five or six years, but the county had not previously chosen to participate.
The contract with the commissioners suggested average price reductions of 22 percent over the uninsured cost for medications, but some medicines will have up a 75 percent reduction in costs.
Please read Wednesday's edition of The Republic for more information.
