An employee shared this program with me the other day. The employee was able to reduce her prescription purchase from $470 to under $30.

The New York State Discount Prescription Program was developed by County Executives and the County Legislatures to help lower the prescription drug cost for County residents. There is no charge to you or the County to belong to this program. This card is designed to be used if you do not have insurance or if something is not covered by your current insurance program. This card cannot be used in conjunction with another insurance program in order to discount your co-pays or deductible. For more information see

This card will only work outside your insurance benefits. It may work better for some prescriptions, than others. As always check your prescription(s) price(s) with multiple pharmacies. Ask what is the cost of your prescription(s) with and without your Univera card, pharmacy generic drug program, and use of the New York State Discount Prescription Program card.

If you should have any questions feel free to call Mark Wasiewicz at 716-366-7792 x212.
