Boulder City participating in discount prescription program

Boulder City

Boulder City residents will soon be eligible for an average 20 percent discount off the price of prescription drugs through a program sponsored by the National League of Cities and CVS Caremark.

The program will be implemented in February and will help residents save money on prescriptions not covered by insurance.

CVS Caremark will provide discount drug cards to residents, regardless of income or age, that can be used at more than 60,000 participating retail pharmacies in the U.S.

Boulder City spokeswoman Rose Ann Miele said the city is able to participate in the program because it is a member of the Nevada and National League of Cities organizations.

Miele said no enrollment or membership fees are required of residents. Information about where to obtain the cards next month has not yet been released.
