Commissioners, Health Division announce expanded discount prescription and health program

The Oakland County Board of Commissioners, in partnership with the Health Division, is announcing the improved Live Healthy Oakland Discount Program, which helps county residents with the high cost of prescription medications and provides discounts on health and dental services. The Live Healthy Oakland Discount Program is provided in partnership with the National Association of Counties.

“We are determined to increase access to health care for everyone,” Board Chairman David T. Woodward (D-Royal Oak) said.

“We’re happy that the Live Healthy Oakland Discount Program has been expanded so that we can now offer enhanced discounts for residents and make health care more affordable for families.”

The enhanced program gives residents new access to:

• 24/7 telemedicine services provided through the low-fee health discount program

• Provides unlimited calls with a clinician without a co-pay

• An average of 30 percent savings on prescriptions for residents and their pets through the no-cost prescription discount program available at more than 66,000 participating pharmacies around the country

• Savings of 10 percent up to $10 at walk-in MinuteClinic locations found at select CVS Pharmacy® or Target stores

“We want to make it easier to live healthy,” Kathy Forzley, director of Oakland County Health and Human Services, said. “This is a great resource for residents to use to save on healthcare costs.”

Residents can visit www.LiveHealthyCard.com for more information and to enroll and access discounts on prescriptions, health services and dental care. The Live Healthy Oakland Discount Program is not insurance and cannot be used in conjunction with any health insurance. Discounts are only available at participating pharmacies. Services are subject to availability. Participating locations can be found online at www.LiveHealthyCard.com.
