About the Program
Black Hawk County is a participant in a discount card program that helps consumers cope with the high price of prescription drugs. The county makes free prescription drug discount cards available under a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo) that offers average savings of 20% off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs.
The cards may be used by all county residents, regardless of age, income, or existing health coverage, and are accepted at 26 pharmacies in Black Hawk County. A national network of more than 57,000 participating retail pharmacies also will honor the NACo prescription discount card.
The NACo prescription discount card offers significant savings for the uninsured and under-insured residents of the county, and even those fortunate to have prescription coverage can use the card to save money on drugs that are not covered by their health plan. Residents do not have to be Medicare beneficiaries to be eligible for this program.
Cards are available at the following locations:
Black Hawk County Auditor’s Office
Black Hawk/Grundy Mental Health Center
Cedar Valley Community Support Services
Central Point of Coordination, and Veterans Affairs
Eastside Ministerial Alliance
Family Management Inc.
Iowa Department of Correctional Services
Social Security Administration
