Prescription Discount Card

The Town of Voluntown Prescription Discount Card is available to all Voluntown residents, no matter their age, employment status, or whether they are currently insured. Residents may print a card by visiting http://ctrxdiscountcard.com, and begin using it right away. If you don’t have access to a printer, cards are available on the information wall outside the town clerk’s office. Simply bring the card to the pharmacy counter when filling a prescription.

This card was designed to be used if you do not have insurance or if something is not covered by your current insurance program. This card cannot be used in conjunction with another insurance program in order to discount your co-pays or deductible. This card can be used for pet prescriptions too!
