NEW CT PRESCRIPTION DRUG DISCOUNT CARD PROGRAM LAUNCHES ON OCTOBER 2
All Connecticut Residents Can Sign Up for the Free Discount Card To Receive Savings on Medication
State Rep. Mitch Bolinsky hailed the announcement that a prescription drug discount card program will launch in Connecticut on October 2, 2023, enabling all residents of the state to receive savings on certain prescription drugs.
The program was established by a new law I supported (Public Act 23-171), which is to be administered by the Office of the State Comptroller.
To launch the program, the Comptroller has entered Connecticut into the multi-state consortium known as ArrayRx, which also operates in Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. All residents of Connecticut will soon become eligible to sign up for an ArrayRx discount card at no cost to them nor the state. When purchasing prescription drugs, consumers present the card at their pharmacy, and they can receive savings of up to 80% on certain medications. All FDA-approved drugs are eligible for a discount.
Beginning on October 2, Connecticut residents who want to receive an ArrayRx discount card can fill out the form that is available online at arrayrxcard.com. A valid physical Connecticut address and e-mail address are required to enroll. The card will be provided to consumers digitally via e-mail and can be downloaded to smartphone wallets. It is anticipated that the card can be used at approximately 98% of pharmacies in Connecticut.
Some examples of savings using the ArrayRx discount card on commonly filled prescription drugs in participating states include:
||Approximate Cash Price*
||Approximate Price with ArrayRx discount*
(20 mg – 30 tablets)
(40 mg – 30 tablets)
(325 mg / 5 mg – 12 tablets)
(30 mg – 30 tablets)
(5 mg – 30 tablets)
