Georgia Drug Card provides prescription drug assistance

  • Follow Smart Shopper

Georgia residents have access to a statewide discount prescription drug program called Georgia Drug Card.

Residents are eligible to receive pharmacy discounts through the program, which can be used to supplement most health insurance plans, including health savings accounts and high-deductible plans. It can also be used to supplement Medicare Part D by providing discounts on noncovered drugs, according to Georgia Drug Card’s Web site.

Visit georgiadrugcard.com to create and print a discount prescription drug card.

The program has no enrollment forms, age or income requirements, waiting periods, eligibility requirements or exclusions.

It also has no claim forms to file and no annual or lifetime limits and covers pre-existing conditions.

Georgia Drug Card will provide prescription savings of up to 75 percent at more than 56,000 pharmacies across the country, including CVS, Bi-Lo, Food Lion, Fred’s, Harvey’s, Kmart, Target and Walgreens. The average savings is 30 percent. The card is pre-activated and can be used immediately. The program includes discounts on brand and generic medications.

APPLIANCE REBATES

Through Feb. 5, South Carolina residents purchasing new Energy Star qualified appliances will be eligible to receive rebates from $50 to $100. The rebates are available through the state’s remaining portion of the appliance rebate stimulus program, according to a release.

Qualifying appliances include Energy Star labeled clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators and room air-conditioning units (window units). Eligible clothes washers will receive a $100 rebate. Dishwashers, refrigerators and room air-conditioning units will receive $50 rebates.

To participate in the program, South Carolina residents must replace an existing appliance in their primary residence with a new Energy Star appliance of the same type.

The old appliance must be hauled away and disposed of properly.

After purchasing Energy Star appliances at South Carolina retailers, the customer must submit a rebate application and receipt postmarked within five calendar days of the purchase.

The application can be found at www.energy.sc.gov/rebates. Only one rebate per appliance type per household is allowed through this program.
