(Portland, OR) – The Oregon Medical Association (OMA) expands support for Oregon's free statewide prescription assistance program. Oregon Rx Card provides savings of up to 75% on prescription drugs at local pharmacies. This program has no restrictions to membership, no income requirements, no age limitations and there are no applications to fill out.

"OMA believes this is an easy and innovative way to help patients get the prescription drugs they need," said Joanne K. Bryson, CAE, Executive Vice President and CEO of the Oregon Medical Association. "We encourage all of our physicians to be proactive in making these cards accessible to their patients."

Since 2009, Oregon Rx Card has saved residents over $13.6 million on their prescription costs since inception. Oregon Rx Card is designed to help the uninsured and underinsured residents afford their prescription medications. Oregon residents can visit www.theOMA.org/rxdiscount to print a card. Residents with no internet access can also visit any Safeway pharmacy location in Oregon and ask the pharmacist to process their prescription through the Oregon Rx Card.

Receive significant savings on prescription drugs with the Oregon Rx Card.

OMA has teamed up with a prescription assistance program called the Oregon Rx Card. The Oregon Rx Card is free to all Oregon residents, and can be used for savings of up to 75 percent on prescription drugs at most retail pharmacies. The Oregon Rx Card helps the uninsured and underinsured obtain prescription medications, but residents with insurance can also use the program to get discounts on "non-covered" drugs (e.g., Chantix, Viagra, Lipitor, Nexium). The program has no membership restrictions, no income requirements, no age limitations, and there are no applications to complete.

OMA members, their family members and patients may print free Oregon Rx Cards, compliments of the OMA, at www.OMA.org/RxDiscount. Your patients may also secure the discount by simply walking into any participating pharmacy in the state and ask that their prescription be processed through the Oregon Rx Card, even if they don't have a physical card. OMA believes this is an easy and innovative way to help your patients get the prescription drugs they need.

For a more durable version of the cards that you can provide to patients at no cost, contact Jennifer Gonzales, the Oregon Rx Card representative, at (503) 490-9959 or jgonzales@oregonrxcard.com.
