South Carolina Drug Card program wanted to remind all residents that the South Carolina Drug Card is available to help with health care costs.

There are no restrictions and no fees so anyone qualifies for the program. Simply go to www.SouthCarolinaDrugCard.com and download a card today.

The program began more than two years ago and has helped thousands of South Carolina citizens. Program director Bert Melancon said, "Now more than ever it's important for everyone to be involved with healthcare related issues. The South Carolina Drug Card is just what residents need to push through these tough economic times." The South Carolina Drug Card has partnered with CVS/pharmacy to help process prescriptions for those who do not have access to a computer. The card is accepted at most chain pharmacies and many independents.

During the past two years South Carolina Drug Card has assisted hospitals, health fairs and health care-related organizations. The program also has partnered with Health Access America, Community Action Partnership, Palmetto Outreach and many other similar groups.

The South Carolina Drug Card program is available at www.SouthCarolinaDrugCard.com and downloading a card or by visiting your local CVS/pharmacy. "The program can even help those with insurance. Anyone can print a card and bring to their pharmacist to see how it can benefit them," Melancon said.
