Arlington has launched a program to help provide residents with some relief from the high cost of prescription medications. Through the program — sponsored by the National League of Cities (NLC) — the City is making free prescription discount cards available to 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 residents of Arlington and has no restrictions based on a resident’s age, income level, or existing health coverage. The card can be used at pharmacies around the city, as well as at more than 60,000 participating retail pharmacies across the country.
