Email News Alerts

The Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC) is reviewing countywide health discount programs that will save residents money on health care costs.


Douglas County Commissioner Paul C. Anderson said two discount cards are being compared. Currently, NACo/Caremark, through CVS Pharmacy, is being used in Douglas County, which relies heavily on mail order prescription filling. The new options offer savings averaging 20 percent more than Caremark's plan.
