Prescription Discount Card Program

The City of Quincy has launched a program to help provide residents with some relief from the high cost of prescription medications. Through the program, sponsored by the National League of Cities (NLC), the city is making free prescription discount cards available to city residents. The discount cards offer city residents an average of 23 percent savings off the retail price of prescription medications.
