A new free prescription drug card from www.NewYorkCityDrugCard.com will help NYC residents save money on their medications at most pharmacies within the five boroughs

People are out of work, finding themselves uninsured. Seniors are forced to choose between their prescription medications and other basic expenses like food and heat during the winter. NewYorkCityDrugCard.com aims to help these residents in need cut prescription drug costs, making routine medications more affordable.

According to 2002 findings reported by Congressman Anthony Weiner of New York's 9th District, "NYC seniors pay up to three times as much as [seniors in] Europe, Asia, [and] Canada, for the same drugs, from the same companies." In 2004, a report from The Council of the City of New York titled "Prescription Drug Prices: All Over the Map" showed that prescription drug retail prices for the same drug can vary by as much as almost 70% within a single borough.

"Consumers shouldn't have to look all over the city just to get competitive cost savings on their prescription medications," says President of NewYorkCityDrugCard.com, Rex Bowden Jr. "This isn't the next consumer fad. These are basic necessities required for the health and wellbeing of many New York City residents. For the uninsured or under-insured, having access to a free prescription drug card can mean the difference between being able to afford prescriptions and having to skip needed doses. With more than 2000 pharmacies around NYC accepting this drug card, residents can save money no matter where they happen to live in the city."

Free prescription drug cards for New York City residents can be obtained instantly online at www.NewYorkCityDrugCard.com. Visitors do not have to provide any personal information to receive an activated card for prescription savings. They can visit the Web site, print the card, and immediately use it to obtain savings at over 2000 NYC pharmacies.
