NACo Resources 

The Linn County Board of Supervisors has partnered with the National Association of Counties (NACo) to offer Linn County residents two discount programs to assist with prescriptions and dental work. 

Prescription Discount Card Program


This no-cost program helps Linn County residents save an average of 24% off the full retail cost of prescription medications that are not covered under a traditional insurance plan. The discount cards, available free of charge to Linn County residents, are available online or at various healthcare locations throughout Linn County as well as the Jean Oxley Linn County Public Service Center and the Community Services Building. The program is offered through NACo in partnership with Caremark.


To apply, find out more information or see if your pharmacy participates in the program, visit the NACo website.



Dental Discount Program

The NACo Dental Discount Card Program is designed to help uninsured and under-insured county residents save money on their dental service expenses. The program complements health insurance plans and works in conjunction with health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts and health reimbursement arrangements. However, this program is not insurance. The dental discount program is available to all Linn County residents.

Program costs:
  • $59 per year or $6.95 per month for individuals
  • $69 per year or $8.95 per month for families 
Obtain a Dental Discount Program card available at the Jean Oxley Public Service Center, Community Services Building or Public Health building and follow instructions on the back of the card.
