Wesley offering prescription discount cards
Staff report

Wesley Township is offering the Illinois Townships Drug Discount Card Program, and any resident of the area can use it to get discounts on medications as well as walk-in health services.

The RxSavingsPlus program is not insurance, and cannot be used in combination with insurance. It offers an average 22 percent discount on retail prescription drugs and up to 50 percent on mail service prescriptions, according to program literature.

There are no claim forms, no limit on the number of times the card can be used, no restrictions or exclusions, and there's no cost to participate. Using the program has no affect on any other medical insurance plan.

The card can be used by uninsured individuals, or those who have insurance but need to buy medication their policy does not cover. It can also be used for medications for pets, if they've been prescribed a medication that's also used to treat common human conditions.

The program provides the township with a small incentive.

"We're just trying to take advantage of a program that does something for the people," explained Supervisor Dan Jay.

The discount cards are available at the township office on Ballou Road, from any of the board members and at Kuzma Care Cottage, at the corner of Main and Laurel streets in Wilmington. Although it is offered by Wesley Township, participation is not restricted to township residents. Anyone who needs the card can have one, Jay said.

The RxSavings Plus card is accepted at Doc's Drugs in Wilmington, Braidwood and Coal City, as well as a number of other pharmacies.
