ProAct, Inc., a subsidiary of Kinney Drugs, pitched the Delaware County Board of Supervisors Wednesday with a plan that could realize savings on prescription drugs for thousands of uninsured and underinsured residents. While the board expressed interest in the plan, no action will be taken until the county attorney has reviewed and approved a contract with ProAct.
The product, a discount card that would be sent out in mass mailings and made available at pharmacy counters, would cost the county nothing beyond an endorsement. David Warner, ProAct’s representative, described the discount card plan as “a way to introduce ourselves to the community.” Under questioning by the board, Warner acknowledged that in providing the service, ProAct would hope to contract with the county in its main business, which is managing prescription plans for county employees.
