Free dental assistance card available this week

RALEIGH — All North Carolinians will be able to download a free Aetna Dental Access card this week. This special offer was launched to help celebrate Rx Awareness Week. North Carolina Drug Card is a free statewide prescription assistance program that was launched in 2009.

“Our goal this week is to inform the residents that there is a program that can help them with their medication costs. Many families are struggling with the rise of health care costs and we are pleased to offer these programs to help them.” said Mike Walker, program director for North Carolina Drug Card.

Aetna Dental Access provides savings on dental services at over 169,000 dental practice locations nationwide. North Carolina Drug Card can offer significant savings on brand and generic medications and is accepted at most pharmacies across North Carolina. If you are unable to print a free prescription card, simply visit CVS pharmacy and ask them to process your prescription through the program.

All North Carolina residents are eligible for this program. Simply visit www.northcarolinadrugcard.com to get your free Aetna Dental and prescription card. All cards are pre-activated and can be used immediately. The Aetna Dental offer is good this week May 16-22 only.
