    Franklin County is pleased to reintroduce the prescription discount drug card program to help ALL County residents deal with the high costs of prescription drugs. The free Prescription Drug Discount Card, sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo) and CVS Caremark, allows any county resident to save an average of 22 percent off the retail price of prescribed pharmaceutical drugs, including pet medications.  The NACo prescription discount card offers significant savings for the uninsured or underinsured residents of Franklin County.  PLEASE NOTE:  Those with existing prescription drug coverage, either through individual insurance plans or Medicare, can use the card to save money on medication not covered under their insurance plans.
