The South Carolina Drug Card is the statewide free prescription assistance program available to all South Carolina residents. The program was launched in August of 2007 to help uninsured and underinsured residents of South Carolina afford their prescription medications. Residents with insurance can use the program to discount non-covered medications. Everyone is eligible for this free program and there are no enrollment requirements.
The South Carolina Drug Card is working with the South Carolina Medical Association (SCMA), Health Access America, Palmetto Outreach, and many other healthcare related organizations in an effort to expand card distribution sites throughout the state. The South Carolina Drug Card provides savings as much as 75% on all medications. The program is completely confidential and all cards are pre-approved and do not expire. The program is accepted at CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, BI-LO, K-Mart. Fred’s, Ingles, Kerr, Longs, Target, Wal-Mart, as well as 56,000 other participating pharmacies nationwide. CVS/pharmacy is the preferred pharmacy for the South Carolina Drug Card. Anyone unable to obtain a hard card may visit any CVS/pharmacy and simply ask to have their prescription processed through the “South Carolina Drug Card”.
With today’s rising cost of health care, the South Carolina Drug Card is a simple solution to the high cost of prescription medications. Residents can print a free pre-activated card, locate participating pharmacies, and search drug pricing by visiting www.southcarolinadrugcard.com.
