The City of Signal Hill is reminding residents of a program to help provide them with some relief from the high cost of prescription drugs. The city is making free prescription-drug discount cards available to city residents through a program sponsored by the National League of Cities (NLC). The discount cards offer an average savings of 20 percent off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs.
The discount cards may be used by all residents of Signal Hill and have no restrictions based on the resident’s age, income level, or existing health coverage. The NLC card can be used when purchasing prescription drugs at more than 100 pharmacies around Signal Hill and the greater Long Beach area, as well as at more than 59,000 participating retail pharmacies across the country.
The City of Signal Hill is happy to partner with the National League of Cities to make this program available for our residents,” said Mayor Ed Wilson. “There is no enrollment form or membership fee of any kind, and city residents and their family members can use the card any time their prescriptions are not covered by insurance.”
Cards are available at Signal Hill City Hall and the Signal Hill Public Library. City residents can call toll-free 1-888-620-1749 or visit caremark.com/nlc for assistance with the program.
The City of Long Beach is also participating in the program. Long Beach residents may visit longbeachdrugcard.com/index.php or call (562) 570-4000 for information.
