Understanding these implications and developing strategies to address them are the foundation of Fuss & O’Neill’s approach to climate resiliency. We work with clients to design improvements that are specific for their needs. Some projects utilize a natural approach, in which our engineers and scientists work to mimic or restore the resiliency of natural systems. Natural systems adjust to changes in conditions, require less maintenance, and provide a number of indirect impacts such as improving shade and habitat. Some projects use hybrid techniques to make infrastructure and development more resilient, which can significantly reduce capital and maintenance costs.

Discount Prescription Drug Card Program

• Many CT residents face the challenge of high cost prescriptions. Through the CCM Prescription Discount Card Program, municipalities are now providing prescription savings to their residents who are without health insurance or a traditional pharmacy benefit plan, or have prescriptions not covered by insurance.

• This program is no cost to CCM-member municipalities and no cost to taxpayers. There are no limits on the use of the card – no income limits, no age requirements. Even some pet prescriptions are covered for medications that also treat a human condition.

• Average savings for CT residents has been 50%, with some participating towns and cities showing an average of 70% savings.

• Cards are mailed to residents and can also be accessed electronically through the CTRxdiscountcard.com website. These cards are automatically activated and can be used immediately at any participating pharmacy.

• The CCM Discount Card program offers real value, easy access, a large national pharmacy network and excellent customer support.

• Program start-up is easy and municipal promotion and administration is simple.

• Program marketing materials are provided at no cost to the town/city offices.

If your municipality is not part of the CCM prescription discount program service and you would like more information, please contact Alison Geisler, at 203-498-3029, or ageisler@ccm-ct.org.

The Prescription Discount Card Program Is Saving Residents In Participating CCM-Member Towns And Cities Millions Of Dollars In Prescription Costs.
