Prescription Discount Card in Rhode Island
RIRx, a statewide discount prescription drug program, launched last week in Rhode Island. The Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce played an instrumental role in creating the program, and is leading the public awareness campaign.
The downloadable card is available for free to any state resident. It offers an average discount of approximately 30% on name brand and generic prescription drugs. It is not an insurance plan.
"The cost of health care is a top concern for Rhode Island's residents," said Laurie White, president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce. "With unemployment on the rise, due to the stalling economy, many individuals and families are finding themselves without health insurance. RIRx is designed give our residents access to much needed healthcare cost savings."
