Maryland Pharmacy Discount Program Launched

The state of Maryland yesterday launched a new statewide discount drug card program called the Maryland Rx Card to help residents pay for prescription drugs, and named Safeway and Giant Food, LLC the preferred pharmacies for the program.

The Maryland Rx Card, which is free to all residents, will provide savings of up to 75 percent on prescription drugs (savings should average roughly 30 percent). The program has no restrictions to membership, no income requirements, no age limitations and no applications to fill out, and is accepted at more than 50,000 pharmacy locations across the country.

The card program was launched to help the uninsured and underinsured residents of Maryland afford their prescription medications. However, it 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 noncovered medications.

Marylanders can download a free Maryland pharmacy discount card by visiting, or by visiting any Giant or Safeway Pharmacy location.
