Brazoria County Tax Assessor-Collector Ro’Vin Garrett announced she has begun mailing the BetterRxCard to county residents. Now, Brazoria residents can save money on prescription drugs at local pharmacies and find lower-cost drug options through our online EquivaMeds service.
“It is important for our residents to look for these cards within their motor vehicle registration renewal and not throw them away. This card could save them a lot of money,” says Garrett.
Remember, one card may be used by an entire family, there are no income prerequisites and no spending requirements.
In December, 1,500 residents tried the card and 1,100 saved an average of $25 per prescription just by handing it to the pharmacist at the checkout counter.
Approximately 1,000 cards will be mailed out weekly until all 102,000 residents receive their card. Please contact us, if you need more information.
