About the Chamber
The Bottom Line Benefits Program is an exclusive package of tangible benefits included with your chamber membership. By taking advantage of one or more of these programs, you will increase the return on your investment!
Save on Prescription Drugs! The Kershaw County Drug Card provides savings of up to 75% on prescription drugs, and is accepted at over 50,000 pharmacies across the country. The Kershaw County Drug Card has no restrictions to membership, no income or age limitations, and residents are not required to fill out an application. The Kershaw County Drug Card was launched to help uninsured and under insured residents afford their prescription medications. However, the program can also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Additionally, people who have prescription coverage can use this program for non-formulary or non-covered drugs.
The Kershaw County Drug Card is a solution to the confusing maze of discount prescription programs that have appeared in recent years. May of these programs only cover certain drugs, charge fees, and some have membership restrictions such as age and income requirements. Kershaw County residents can download a free, card, search drug pricing, and locate participating pharmacies from this site by clicking on the FREE Drug Card icon above.
Be sure to read through the frequently asked questions to better understand how the card works.
