Iowa Medical Society & Iowa Drug Card Partnership Statement

IMS Members,
We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with the Iowa Drug Card to provide a FREE prescription assistance program for your patients, employees and others. The Iowa Drug Card aims to make prescription medications more affordable for the uninsured and underinsured and can be used for savings of up to 80 percent on prescription medications at more than 68,000 pharmacies nationwide.
I encourage you to let your patients know about this program and to print a free Iowa Drug Card at or
The program discounts both brand and generic prescription medications for those individuals without prescription coverage. Additionally, individuals who have prescription drug coverage may still qualify and receive discounts on medications not covered by their insurance plan. There is no application to complete, no membership restrictions, no income requirement and no age limitations. It’s as easy as printing a free Iowa Drug Card at or
You can also have a supply of custom cards mailed directly to your office, at NO COST, by contacting program director Alexis LeMaire at or 800.726.4232.
I hope you’ll agree this is an easy, innovative option that may help your patients get the prescription medications they need at a cost they can afford.

Michael Flesher, Executive Vice President, CEO Iowa Medical Society
