Discount Drugs Program Assists Local Patients

Leg pain brought Vicki Fountain to her doctor's office and she was expecting to feel more pain in her pocketbook when she went to fill her prescriptions. But instead she was pleasantly surprised when she arrived at the pharmacy.

Patients of Mayo Health Services can get prescription drugs at a discounted price through a federal program now offered in the area. The center serves Lafayette, Taylor, and Suwannee Counties.

Fountain says from now on visits to the pharmacy won't be so painful.
