The program is open to all residents of the state of West Virginia.
West Virginia Rx Card is the state's free prescription assistance program designed to help the uninsured and underinsured afford otherwise costly medications. The program is available to all residents regardless of age, income, or medical conditions. Those with insurance can also use the program on drugs not covered by their plan.
In order to help spread awareness about the program, West Virginia Rx Card has partnered with the Charleston Area Alliance, the largest regional Chamber of Commerce in West Virginia, as well as numerous hospitals and clinics throughout the state.
The card is pre-activated, with no eligibility requirements, and completely confidential. Savings can be as high as 75% on some medications. Residents can print a free pre-activated card, locate a pharmacy and search drug pricing by visiting www.westvirginiarxcard.com.
