Prescription Drug Discount Program
The Town of Canton, through its association with the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM), the statewide association of towns and cities, is now providing a new prescription discount card that will provide uninsured and underinsured residents steep savings on prescription medicines.
In Connecticut, over 10 percent of Connecticut residents - nearly 360,000 people - currently lack health insurance and prescription plans and another 800,000 residents are underinsured. There are over 50 million uninsured individuals living in the United States.
The "Town of Canton Prescription Drug Discount Card" helps residents save money on their prescription medications any time their prescription is not covered by insurance. This new prescription discount card will provide immediate relief at the pharmacy counter for uninsured and underinsured residents and offers many features and benefits:

Each residence in Canton will receive a card by direct mail which they may use at any participating retail pharmacy. Cards may be used by all town residents regardless of age, income or existing health coverage. There are no enrollment forms, membership fees, restrictions or limits on frequency of use for residents.
Cardholders and their family members are encouraged to use the cards any time their prescriptions are not covered by insurance. Cards will also be printed by visiting CCM's website, and selecting Canton from the drop-down menu.
