In concert with the National League of Cities, Lafayette Consolidated Government is providing free prescription discount cards to residents living within the city of Lafayette. The cards, which offer an average of 23 percent off retail prescriptions, are valid at nearly 80 pharmacies as well as more than 60,000 retail pharmacies around the nation. There are no restrictions based on age, income or existing health coverage.

“Given the current economic climate, where many people need to watch what they spend, we are happy to partner with the National League of Cities to make this prescription discount card available to our residents,” Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux says in a press release touting the new program. “This card helps residents who are completely uninsured, as well as residents who have insurance, but have specific medications that are not covered by their insurance. In both scenarios, residents experience significant savings on prescription medications not covered by health plans.”

The cards can be downloaded and printed from the Internet here, obtained by calling (888) 620-1749 and are also available at the following locations:
