The City of La Vista has launched a program to help provide residents with some relief from the high cost of prescription medications.
The program is sponsored by the National League of Cities and makes free prescription discount cards available to residents. The discount cards offer residents an average of 23 percent savings off the retail price of medications.
The NLC Prescription Discount Card can be used by all La Vista residents and has no restrictions based on a resident’s age, income level or existing health coverage. The card can be used at virtually all local area pharmacies, as well as at more than 60,000 pharmacies across the country.
"This program is an opportunity to save significant amounts of money on medical necessities," said Mayor Doug Kindig. He says "whether you have no prescription drug insurance or insurance that only covers some medications, you can benefit from this program."

The prescription discount cards can be obtained in a number of ways. You can go to www.caremark.com/nlc and print your card, pick up one at City Hall, the Community Center or the Library or call 1-888-620-1749 for assistance with the program.
