ProAct Inc. will mail a prescription drug card at no expense to every family in Schenectady County, making it the 11th county in New York state to offer this service. County residents can also pick one up at any participating pharmacy and it will still be free of charge.
"It's a program for the residents of the county and we have certainly seen a lot of support from county politicians and legislators to provide this to uninsured [and underinsured] residents," said David Warner, president of ProAct, Inc.
"I look forward to getting it approved and getting it rolled out to the residents of Schenectady County," said Warner.
Cards may be used at participating local pharmacies and at over 60,000 pharmacies in the national network. For more information on the program, visit www.proactrx.com.
