(NewsUSA) – Evelyn Webster of Brazos County, Texas, was devastated when she learned that her sister had been diagnosed with stomach cancer. As a result of the radiation and chemotherapy treatments, her big sister, Deborah Bryant, was unable to work and lost her health insurance.
“So therein lies the problem: no insurance, no medication, no money to buy the medication,” Webster told CBS affiliate KBTX-TV in Bryan/College Station, Texas.
The family learned of a free prescription discount card available through Brazos County, where Webster works in the District Clerk’s office.
“Without the NACo card, unfortunately, we would not have been able to buy all of [my sister's] medicines,” she said. “The discount card is one of the best things to ever happen in Brazos County.”
The National Association of Counties (NACo) Prescription Discount Card Program, administered by CVS Caremark, is a free national program available for all residents of NACo-member counties.
