As millions of Americans are being laid off, working fewer hours and needing greater access to healthcare due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many county residents are stretching every dollar.  

Especially during these challenging times, NACo has been working to bring county residents new ways to cut healthcare costs through our “Live Healthy” discount program. Now more than ever, saving feels better. 

At no cost to NACo members, counties can provide significant savings for residents and their pets through NACo’s Live Healthy discount program which provides savings on prescription, health and dental costs. Since 2004, nearly 1,300 counties, parishes and boroughs have enrolled to save residents over $705 million on their prescriptions. 

To assist during this time of need, the Live Healthy program has been enhanced to help residents save in new ways: 

• 24/7 telemedicine access through the health discount program, providing unlimited calls with a clinician without co-pays 

• An average of 30 percent savings — an increase of 6 percent — on medications with the no-cost Rx discount card 

• More affordable monthly fees for the Health and Dental discount programs 

 

No contracts or agreements are required for counties, parishes or boroughs to offer the Live Healthy discount program to residents.
