NEW MILFORD — The town, through its association with the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, has saved residents more than $80,000 since joining the association’s Prescription Drug Discount Program in 2013.

The program has saved residents in the participating communities nearly $8 million since it launched in September 2012.

The program is free for CCM municipalities and their residents and provides a savings for any prescription not covered by insurance.

“Even if you have prescription insurance, this card can help residents save when their current insurance card doesn’t cover a medication, or if their pet needs medication that is human-based,” said Shari Fiveash, CCM director of member services.

“Plus, there are vision and hearing services available as well that have discounted exams, frames, lenses and hearing aid devices,” she said.

Cards are available to all New Milford residents, regardless of age, income or existing health coverage. For more information, visit www.CTRxDiscountCard.com. Cards are also available at Roger Sherman Town Hall at 10 Main St.
