Prescription Drug Discount Program

The City of La Vista has launched a program to help provide residents with some relief from the high cost of prescription medications.

Sponsored by the National League of Cities, the program makes free prescription discount cards available to city residents. The discount cards offer residents an average of 23 percent savings off the retail price of prescription medications.

The NLC Prescription Discount Card can be used by all La Vista residents and has no restrictions based on a resident’s age, income level or existing health coverage. The card can be used at virtually all local area pharmacies, as well as at more than 60,000 participating retail pharmacies across the country.

"This program is an opportunity to save significant amounts of money on medical necessities," said Mayor Douglas Kindig, "and the City is proud to offer it to our residents. Whether you have no prescription drug insurance or insurance that only covers some medications, you can benefit from this program."

The prescription discount cards can be obtained in a number of ways. Visit the National League of Cities website to sign up and print your card, pick one up at City Hall, the Community Center or the Library or call 888-620-1749 for assistance with the program.
