Yavapai County Prescription Program
Yavapai County participates in a Prescription program to help consumers cope with the high price of prescriptions.The county is making the free prescription discount cards available under a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties (NACo) that offers substantial savings off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs.
The cards may be used by all county residents, regardless of age, health, income, or existing health coverage. Even if you have prescription insurance coverage, you may still benefit from the discount card since it may save you money on prescriptions your existing plan does not cover.
It’s easy to use. Simply print a card and present your discount card at a participating retail pharmacy along with your prescription(s), and save an average of 24 percent on your prescription drugs. There are no limits on how many times the card can be used. You can use it for the whole family. Even use the card for your pets. If your pet is prescribed a medication that is also used for humans, ask your veterinarian for a prescription to use at a participating pharmacy. There are no claim forms to fill out and no membership fees.
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office now utilizes CodeRED® as its Emergency Notification System. With this service, we can send messages to residents and businesses within minutes with specific information when an emergency or time-sensitive issue arises.
Although ENS does contain published landline phone number information by default, the Sheriff’s Office may only get landline phone data updates twice a year. This is why it is vital that you register all your phone numbers directly to assure contact in an emergency.
By signing up or opting-in, you may enter alternate phone numbers and/or modes of contact. You may also specify your primary contact mode. The opt-in process will require that you have a valid email address. A confirmation email and/or text message will be sent upon completion of registration (will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org and may take up to 5 minutes). Once registered, you may opt-out at any time.
When delivery of the alert to your primary contact mode fails, the system will automatically fall back to other methods. With respect to phone notifications, if the system detects an answering machine, it will deliver the message to voicemail. If the phone is not answered and no answering machine is detected, the system will redial the number at a later time or, if specified, fall back to another contact mode. When the call appears on your caller-id, it will display the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office business number: (928) 771-3260.
Please, NEVER REPLY to Alert message emails or text messages! Instead, please call (928) 771-3260.
