Q: What type of discounts can you expect when you use this card?

Q: How is the Pennsylvania Drug Card different from other Rx programs?

Many of these programs only cover certain drugs, charge fees, and some have membership restrictions such as age and income requirements. Furthermore, some plans sell/share information. Pennsylvania Drug Card will not share, sell, or distribute personal information for any reason.
Q: What pharmacies accept the Pennsylvania Drug Card?
A: This program is accepted at over 50,000 pharmacies across the country. You can search for participating pharmacies at www.PADrugCard.com.
