(Portland, OR) The Oregon Medical Association (OMA) has officially partnered with the Oregon Rx Card to provide a FREE prescription assistance program for members, their patients, employees and others. The Oregon Rx Card was launched in 2009 to make prescription medications more affordable for the uninsured and underinsured. The card may be used for savings of up to 75% on prescription medications at more than 56,000 pharmacies nationwide.

???This is an easy way for Oregonians to get the prescription drugs they need at a cost they can afford,?? said Joanne K. Bryson, CAE, Executive Vice President and CEO of the Oregon Medical Association. ???We encourage our members to make these cards accessible to their patients.??

The card offers discounts on both brand name and generic prescription medications for individuals without prescription coverage. Additionally, those who have prescription drug coverage may still qualify and receive discounts on medications not covered by their insurance plan. Oregon residents can create a free card, search drug pricing, and locate participating pharmacies simply visit www.theOMA.org or www.oregonrxcard.com.
