Prescription drug program available to all Levy Countians

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

It’s the offer no one can refuse.

Give me $651 in county money and I’ll give everyone in your county an average discount of 20 percent on their prescriptions.

Heck, if their pets use medicines manufactured for human consumption, I’ll toss in a discount on their prescriptions, too.

And those folks won’t have to pay a fee to get the discount.

Levy County Commissioner Lillie Rooks said that’s just what happened.

“I was at a conference and I was going over some of the information and a NACo (National Association of Counties) rep came up to me and I asked him to give me an explanation,” Rooks said.

“And they said you had to be a member of NACo to participate,” she added. “The cost of that to the county was I think 500 and we voted on it to be a member of NACo.”

The county joined in 2006 and this year will pay $651 in membership fees this year. But county residents, who pay that fee with their taxes will save a lot at the drug counter.
