Press play to hear a Public Service Announcement from the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

Hello, this is Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson. Americans are paying more for prescription drugs than ever before.

That's why I'm proud to tell you about a discount card program that will help our residents cope with the high price of prescription drugs.

Atlantic County government and the National Association of Counties offer a prescription discount card that can save you and your family an average of 20% off the price of commonly prescribed medications that are not covered by insurance.

The card is available at no cost to all county residents and offers a significant savings whether you are uninsured, underinsured or purchasing medications that are not covered by your health plan.

The cards are available at facilities throughout the county and are accepted at a national network of more than 59,000 retail pharmacies. Call 1-888-426-9243 to start saving today.

And, Atlantic County also offers a dental discount card to help residents save on dental service expenses.

For more information about the Atlantic County Prescription and Dental Discount cards, visit the county Web site at www.aclink.org.

This is Denny Levinson for the Atlantic County Division of Public Health: working for healthy people in healthy communities.
