New Discount Program Helps Farm Bureau Members Cut Costs


Colorado Farm Bureau has introduced a new discount program that offers its members an average savings of 30 percent on prescription drugs.  The Prescription Discount Program card is free and is a benefit of membership in the Colorado Farm Bureau.

Farm Bureau members and their families without insurance, as well as those who find themselves with no prescription benefit in their plan, will benefit from the Prescription Discount Program, according to Colorado Farm Bureau. Further, Farm Bureau members who have full-time, part-time or seasonal workers may provide the card as an employee benefit.

Members can download a ready to use discount card and can also view a list of participating pharmacies.

Other benefits of the program include no enrollment forms, no age restrictions, no income requirements, no waiting periods, no eligibility requirements, no exclusions, no claim forms to file and no annual or lifetime limits.

“We believe this discount card will help our members and their families and employees save money,” said Alan Foutz, President of Colorado Farm Bureau.

The program is honored by more than 704 local, regional and national pharmacies in Colorado and more than 57,000 national and regional pharmacies.

Discounts of up to 75 percent on brand and generic prescription medications are available. Because the program is “open formulary,” all prescription drugs, including brand name products and generics, are eligible for discounts.

    The prescription discount program sounds great. Would it be possible to send additional information. The cards just say a discount and this message says up to 75% discount. There must be more guidelines or even lists of medications that are included.

    Thank you,

      Barbara, your pharmacy will be able to tell you if your medications are eligible. Most brand and generic are. The average discount is 30% and some prescriptions may be eligible for up to a 75% discount.

    Barbara, my company powers this plan, your state Farm Bureau should have a list of FAQ’s. It is a simple as it appears, most medications, brand and generic are eligible for discounts. Generic medications will offer the greatest discount.

    Thanks,
