Cumberland County is participating in a free discount prescription drug program sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo) that we hope will alleviate some of our residents’ financial burden. The program is administered by Caremark Rx Inc., and comes at no cost to County Government or taxpayers. The program has had success in Penobscot and Franklin counties. In Penobscot County last year, over 200 people used the cards each month, and saved a total of over $47,000. We expect to have similar success here in Cumberland County.
Here’s how the program works: The county makes the cards available to residents through town offices, non-profits, and any retail location that requests the cards. Residents pick up cards as they would any other brochure, and then have the option to present the card when purchasing prescription drugs not covered by insurance. The average savings is 20% off the retail price. Caremark Inc. earns a small administrative fee each time a resident uses a card. The tracking number on the card allows Caremark to report total savings. The county has no access to the name or personal information of those who take or use the cards.
For questions about the program, contact CareMark 1-877-321-2652 or visit http://www.caremark.com/naco or see our FAQ pages.
Cards have been located in Cumberland County town offices and in the County Courthouse. To obtain cards for your organization, contact the Cumberland County Executive Office at 871-8380.
Individuals can print out a card online at http://www.countyrxcard.com

"I was pleased that Cumberland County organized this effort and was pleased at the cross section of individuals that attended and the communities that were represented," Scarborough Fire Chief Mike Thurlow said. "I thought the presenters were all top quality and knowledgeable about the subjects they were covering. It was a great mentoring opportunity for some of our middle managers who are aspiring for a promotion." more---->
CUMBERLAND COUNTY REGIONAL COMMUNICATION CENTER CELEBRATES MILESTONE
Cumberland County Regional Communication Center (CCRCC) celebrated a milestone recently when it converted all participating communities to Spillman, an integrated software system specifically for public safety.
"When we started adding communities to the Cumberland County Regional Communication Center in 2004, we thought that we could utilize two different emergency software systems. We later realized that working with two different systems could be problematic and that we needed to work with our communities toward one integrated system," said William Holmes, CCRCC Director. ---->more
