Brunswick County expands participation in the NACo Live Healthy Discount Programs

11.27.2017

Brunswick County has expanded its participation in the National Association of Counties (NACo) Live Healthy Discount programs, which offer residents discounts on prescriptions, dental and health services and procedures.

Brunswick County has been a participant in NACo’s program offering discounts on prescription drugs, and it is now expanded to include the Health Discounts and Dental Discounts programs.

It is available to both residents who do not have insurance and residents who do have insurance but whose insurance does not cover the prescriptions or services they need. There are no age or income requirements, and no medical condition restrictions. It is not a health insurance program.

Citizens can see which providers are participating by visiting https://www.nacohealth.org/providers.aspx or by calling 1-877-573-2395.

The Live Healthy program has three components: Prescription Discounts, Dental Discounts and Health Discounts.

The NACo Live Healthy Prescription Discounts is a free program, offering a discount on prescription drugs at participating pharmacies. One card can be used for the whole family, including pet prescription medicine. Cards can be picked up at Brunswick County Health Services, Brunswick County Social Services, or Brunswick County Library Branches, or printed at http://nacorx.org/print-a-card/participating-counties.

The NACo Live Healthy Dental Discounts program includes a low monthly or annual fee, and provides a discounted rate on dental procedures and services with participating providers. Participants can receive a discount of 15- to 50-percent on services like routine check-ups, teeth cleanings, x-rays, fillings, and root canals.

The NACo Live Healthy Health Discounts program includes a low monthly or annual fee, and provides discounted rates on health services, supplies and procedures with participating providers.

“We have had citizens that have taken advantage of the prescription discounts,” said Board of Commissioners Vice Chair Randy Thompson, “and so I see the advantage in having a program that is designed to provide those who don’t have insurance or are underinsured the opportunity to acquire dental and health care at a reduced rate. I’m excited about the opportunity for the County to participate in a national program that’s going to provide our citizens with an additional opportunity to save on their health care costs.”

“We’re pleased to work with counties across the country to offer discounts like these to county residents and families who need them,” said NACo president Roy Charles Brooks, Commissioner, Tarrant County, Texas.
