Bloomberg, Quinn Announce New 'BigAppleRx' Prescription Discount Card

An announcement in Brooklyn this morning from Mayor Michael Bloomberg will make it easier for the more than one million New Yorkers who don't have health insurance to fill their prescriptions.

Speaking at the Target pharmacy on the corner of Atlantic Ave. and Flatbush Ave., Bloomberg, alongside City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Deputy Mayor Linda I. Gibbs, announced the launch of the BigAppleRx card, New York City's first official prescription discount card. The card is available to anyone who lives, works, or visits the city, and will be accepted at more than 2,000 pharmacies throughout the five boroughs.
