Residents whose insurance plans lack prescription coverage or have high deductibles can present the card to save about 20% on brand name drugs and up to 70% on generic prescriptions. The card is accepted by most pharmacies in Connecticut, and can be used as often as needed for the whole family. In addition to prescription drug discounts, the card also offers significant savings on eye exams, eyeglass frames and lenses, as well as LASIK vision treatments. And card holders can save 35-65% on the cost of hearing services and products. The card can even be used for some pet prescriptions. Residents can go to www.CTRxDiscountCard.com, choose "Town of Wethersfield" from the drop-down menu and print a personalized card.

The Wethersfield Police Department, however, will also continue to provide requests for accident reports as in the past for those not desiring this service.
