Prescription Drug Discount

The prescription drug discount program offers savings on prescription drugs for residents without health insurance or a traditional benefits plan or residents who have prescriptions that are not covered by insurance. The Prescription Discount Card is FREE to all Greenville residents, regardless of age, income or existing health insurance. Card users can save an average of 20% off the regular retail price of prescription drugs at participating pharmacies.

Visit Caremark to access the program online. There, you can print a card, check drug prices and locate participating pharmacies. For more information, call 1-888-620-1749 toll free. Residents can also pick up a card at City Hall, located at 206 South Main Street.

This is not insurance. Discounts are only available at participating pharmacies. By using this card, participants agree to pay the entire prescription cost less any applicable discount. Savings may vary by drug and pharmacy.


South Carolina residents also have access to a statewide Prescription Assistance Program (PAP). Residents can obtain a pharmacy coupon card (available at City Hall), which provides savings of up to 75% on prescriptions at more than 68,000 pharmacies.
