Frequently Asked Questions
Will I always save 20%?
The Defiance County Prescription Discount Card provides an average savings on 20% off the pharmacy's regular retail price. Savings will vary by drug and pharmacy.
Will I always receive the lowest price?
Yes. You will always receive the best price available to you through this program at the pharmacy. On occasion, pharmacies will price a particular medication lower than the discount rate provided by the card. If that occurs, you will receive the lower price.
Can I really use the card for pet prescriptions?
Yes, prescriptions that are prescribed for human conditions - as well as for pets - can be purchased through this program. Ask your veterinarian for a prescription to present with your card at a participating pharmacy.
Can I use my prescription discount card with my current insurance benefit to reduce my costs?
Your card cannot be used in conjunction with other insurance. However, you are able to use your card to purchase prescriptions that are not covered by these plans. This includes drugs not covered by a Medicare Part D Plan.
How is this prescription discount program different from traditional prescription insurance?
This plan is not insurance. It is a prescription discount program. The card provides immediate discounts at the pharmacy. Upon presenting your card to the pharmacist, you will pay the lower of a discounted price or the pharmacy's regular retail price. There are no claim forms to fill out and no limit to the number of times you can use the card. These discounts are available only at participating retail pharmacies or through the Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy.
Can I use my card to get discounts on over-the-counter products and non-prescription medications?
Not usually. However, discounts are available for many diabetes supplies.
I just received my card. Can I use it right away?
Yes, use your card to start saving immediately. Present your prescription discount card at any participating retail pharmacy when you fill or refill your prescriptions.
This plan is not insurance. Savings are only available at participating pharmacies.
