(Mayfield, KY) – The City of Mayfield has partnered with the Kentucky League of Cities in the Kentucky Rx Card Program for citizens of Mayfield and Graves County.

As prescriptions are the fastest-rising component of health care spending, the Kentucky League of Cities has partnered with United Networks of America and Restat to offer a program that benefits cities and their citizens. The City of Mayfield is partnering in the program, which provides prescription discounts with no strings attached. The card is useful for people who are uninsured or underinsured, and can also assist most anyone with prescriptions not covered on other benefit plans.

"The Rx Card is a resource for all citizens who simply present the card at their pharmacy," said Mayfield Mayor Teresa Cantrell. "Should they choose to use it, there are no strings attached - no paperwork, no fees, and it's totally confidential. The value of this program is that it allows the City of Mayfield to direct its citizens to a great service."

Beyond prescriptions, the Kentucky Rx Card program also offers discounts on other types of services including eyeglasses, LASIC surgery, hearing plans, dental plans, diabetic supplies and even teeth whitening.

Cantrell said the cards are available at City Hall in the information center. There is no cost for the card. Cantrell also said there will be a link on the city's website for information on the program and a way to download cards for interested citizens.

UNA and Restat are two of the nation's leading benefits providers. The Rx Card program is helping thousands of people across the country. The program model had worked with associations such as the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns, Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina, American Farm Bureau, Inc., and the Maryland State Medical Society.
