More Prescription Drug Discount Cards Endorsed by Medicare
In late May, Medicare endorsed additional prescription drug discount cards increasing the total now available to Ohio Medicare beneficiaries from 28 to 45. Five of the cards are offered by Medicare Advantage plans. You must be enrolled in one of the respective plans to receive their card.
