(Crown Point) – Mayor David Uran announced last week the offering of a prescription drug card for all residents of the city through the Indiana Drug Card program and the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns.

It is a free program that provides savings up to 75 percent on prescription drugs. The card can be used by people that have no prescription coverage, are uninsured or under-insured. This drug card an also be used by anyone with prescription coverage for non-formulary or non-covered drugs.

There are no restrictions to becoming a member based on the individual's income or age and no applications to fill out.

To get a card visit the city's web site at www.CrownPoint.in.gov and click on the Crown Point Rx Card link. For more information call the mayor's office at 662-3240.

While the Indiana Drug Card provides the Crown Point Rx Card, pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies are also funding it. Many pharmacies that are part of other stores and not exclusively pharmacies also honor the card and are listed on the back side of the card.
