CCM Card

Free CCM prescription discount cards available for city residents

WEST HAVEN, June 20, 2019 — The City of West Haven Prescription Discount Card is available for residents and their pets, Mayor Nancy R. Rossi announced.

Rossi said the free card, which reduces prescription medication costs, is provided by the city through its membership with the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, the statewide association of towns and cities.

West Haven has participated in the CCM Discount Prescription Drug Card Program, which is free to CCM-member municipalities, since November 2013.

During that time, CCM said, the program has saved city residents more than $180,000 in prescription costs, a 61% savings over what they would have paid for the 3,336 prescriptions filled so far.

The card can be used by residents to obtain discounts and savings on prescriptions not covered by insurance, including pet prescriptions that can be filled at retail pharmacies. There are no costs to the city or its residents, and the program is completely anonymous, according to CCM.

The card is accepted at all national chain pharmacies and most local independent pharmacies and can be used by all residents regardless of age, income or existing health coverage. There are no enrollment forms, membership fees, restrictions or limits on the frequency of use, CCM said.

Cards can be printed by visiting and selecting City of West Haven from the drop-down menu. Cards can also be picked up in the mayor’s office on the third floor of City Hall, 355 Main St.

The above website also contains a “Learn the Perks of the Card” section where residents can locate a participating pharmacy, comparison shop their medication, and find information on discounts for vision, hearing and LASIK services.
