Trustees learn about county ExecutiveMED program
Bath Township Board of Trustees
By Kathleen Collins
The Bath Township Board of Trustees learned about Summit County’s new ExecutiveMED Prescription Discount Card during the Sept. 18 meeting.
Tina Merlitti, community relations specialist for Summit County Executive James McCarthy’s Office, told trustees the free card is available to all Summit County residents, regardless of age, income or existing health-care coverage. She said if a person does not have health insurance, the card could save them money on their prescriptions. She added that if residents do have a prescription card through their medical insurance plan, they can use the card for prescriptions not covered by their current carrier. The card is accepted at more than 57,000 participating retail pharmacies in the Caremark network.
Merlitti said residents can pick up a card at Acme Fresh Markets, Tops Friendly Markets, Marc’s and the township offices.
