Oswego County's Prescription Drug Discount Card Program Introduces Vision, LASIK and Hearing Discounts

ProAct, Inc., administrators of the Oswego County Prescription Drug Discount Program, have recently expanded their program to include discounts on vision, LASIK and hearing services. County Legislature Chairman Barry Leemann said the new benefits are available to all existing participants and those new to the program.

"The program will continue to operate free of charge to all Oswego County residents through the existing partnership with ProAct, Inc., a pharmacy benefit management company," said Legislator Leemann. "The prescription drug discount card can provide significant savings for uninsured and underinsured residents of Oswego County. Residents who have prescription drug coverage can use the card to save money on drugs that are not covered by their health plan."

Any Oswego County resident, regardless of age, can participate in the discount program. One discount card may be used for all family members.

To access the new benefits, residents can link to the Oswego County Prescription Discount Web site at http://www.proactrx.com/card_oswego.php and print out a new card. Those who do not have Internet access can call the ProAct help line number on the back of their card at 1-877-776-2285.
