The card benefits those without insurance as well as under-insured residents.

The NLC card can be used when purchasing prescription drugs at six pharmacies around the city.

"In the current economic climate where many people are watching what they spend, Bryant is happy to partner with the National League of Cities to make this prescription discount card available for our residents," said Mayor Larry Mitchell. "Whether or not an individual has prescription coverage, this program can make it easier for our residents to afford the medications they need to deal with a short-term illness or stay healthy by managing a chronic condition."

Cards can be printed from the Internet at and are available at the Human Resource Department at City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce, the Senior Adult Center and the Library at no cost to city residents.

"Not only does the NLC prescription discount card help residents save money on their mediations, it is easy to use," Mitchell said. "Bryant residents only have to show their card when purchasing medication at one of the many participating pharmacies. There is no enrollment form required to get a card, no membership fee of any kind and city residents and their family members can use the card any time their prescriptions are not covered by insurance."
