“This card represents a potential huge benefit to many people in our community struggling with the high cost of medications that they need to stay healthy, and even save their lives,” Fulton County Commissioner Natalie Hall said.

Anyone can sign up for a card for free, and, according to the company, all major pharmacy chains accept it.

Pharmacies underwrite the discount cards to get more people in their doors.
