The posting says you are from Miami, which is in that third world Country south of Broward County. So, I guess you didn't need to know.

Um...Ok, but people remember you can't you this in addition to your insurance coverage. You have to pick either your insurance or the discount card.

And there goes your property tax dollars at work. Isn't that lovely! Pembroke Pines also just funded a $500k special needs park. And these pigs say they would have to cut police and fire services if the property tax issue is addressed/. NOPE, just crap like this.

I have Caremark with my insurance. They are absolutely INCOMPETANT. They service presrciptions with less care than you would expect from a flea market selling used paper clips. Although I can save 1/3 by using the mail service, I choose to pay the extra and use a local pharmacy.

Lower medical care? How about doctors, hospitals and drug stores charging the public the prearranged fees they accept from insurance!
Huh

"The card cannot be used in addition to insurance coverage"

So how does this benefit everyone with insurance? What a tease!

Where is the article did it say it's costing you anything? It specifically states in the article that "There are no costs for county taxpayers".
