Live healthy, Sumter County.
A free program is available to all county residents and can save you money on prescription medication. The National Association of Counties (NACo) Live Healthy program provides residents of Sumter County a free Prescription Discount Card to save money on retail costs on your prescriptions.
As Sumter County Government is a member of NACo, the Live Healthy program also offers county residents – for a monthly fee – discounts on health and dental costs as well to include vision procedures, hearing aids and screenings, prepaid lab work, diabetes supplies, and more. The Live Healthy discount program is not health insurance and is administered by CVS Caremark.
“We’re happy to offer this program to residents of Sumter County,” said Sumter County Assistant Administrator Lorraine Dennis. “Striving toward a healthier lifestyle through exercise and better nutrition is an admirable mindset and something we should all do. With this program, Sumter County residents can also realize long-term savings on health care costs.”
According to the National Association of Counties, the prescription portion of the program continues to grow, with providing an average savings of 32 percent on thousands of medications. Average savings range from 15 to 75 percent. The free prescription discount card is accepted nationwide at more than 68,000 pharmacies.
The individual health and dental costs are $6.95 a month or $69 a year. The monthly family costs are $8.95 a month or $79 a year. When combining health and dental, the monthly individual costs are $13.90 or $138 a year. For health and dental, the monthly family cost is $17.90 or $158 a year.
