ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  All Dougherty Countians will soon be able to get help with prescription drug costs. Monday the county commission approved a partnership with the National association of County Governments.

It will allow county residents to get a discount on prescription drugs. Any time insurance doesn't cover a prescription... you can use the card and get a 20-30% discount.  Jeff Sinyard said, "To have this offer right now, couldn't have come at a better time. The majority of our citizens in Dougherty County do not have the ability to have a prescription card that gives them the discount they need, particularly prescriptions."

It will take about 10 weeks before the plan is in place. You'll be able to find the prescription cards at pharmacies, the department of family and children services and other county offices.
