Hey, Kane County residents! Start saving money on your prescriptions!
The NACo Prescription Discount Card is provided to you in a joint effort of Kane County government and the National Association of Counties. Click on the above video for more information.
Any county resident without prescription coverage can use this program. Even if you have prescription insurance coverage, you may still benefit from the discount card since it may save you money on prescriptions your existing plan does not cover.
It’s easy to use. Simply print a card and present your discount card at a participating retail pharmacy along with your prescription(s), and save an average of 24 percent on your prescription drugs.
There are no limits on how many times the card can be used.
You can use it for the whole family. Even use the card for your pets. If your pet is prescribed a medication that is also used for humans, ask your veterinarian for a prescription to use at a participating pharmacy. There are no claim forms to fill out and no membership fees.

Can I use my card to get discounts on over-the-counter products and non-prescription medications?

How is this prescription discount program different from traditional prescription insurance?
This is not insurance; it is a prescription discount program. The card provides immediate discounts at the pharmacy.

There are no claim forms to fill out and no limit to the number of times you can use the card. These discounts are available only at participating retail pharmacies.

Yes, you can use your prescription discount card anytime you need to purchase a prescription that is not covered by your Medicare prescription plan or any other insurance.

No, only use your prescription discount card to purchase non-covered medications.
