Cost Saving Programs
We’re always looking for new opportunities to provide our members with resources that can help lower costs for counties and residents.
Below you’ll find information about some of our partners who can help employees and residents save money on dental care, prescription medications, and driver’s safety training.
Dental Network Access (Health Economics Group)
NYSAC’s County Dental Network Access Program is designed to provide member counties with a way to help residents access dental services at lower rates for services for cleanings, cavities, and crowns.
The program can provide residents with access to dentists in your community who accept the same dental fees, sometimes even lower than they accept with insurance company contracts.
The program costs $36.50 a year for an individual or $52 a year for a couple, and one visit to the dentist more than pays the cost of becoming part of the network access program.
County Prescription Drug Discount Card
Since 2005, the County Prescription Discount Card Program has helped New Yorkers save money on prescription drugs, vision services, Lasik eye surgery, and hearing aids. The County Prescription Discount Card Program has been offered by 49 counties, and over the years has saved New York residents over $277 million dollars on over 7.3 million prescriptions.
The County Prescription Discount Card is free of charge through a partnership between the county and ProAct, a Pharmacy Benefit Management Company based in Central NY. Working alongside NYSAC, ProAct partners with counties to offer residents access to the program through the county website, county departments of social services, public health, and offices for the aging.
County Driver’s Safety Program
NYSAC partners with the New York Safety Program to provide an Internet Point & Insurance Reduction Program as an alternative method for defensive driving, but with the same great benefits of a traditional classroom course. New Yorkers can complete their defensive driving course online.
NYSP’s online program is designed to improve drivers’ attitudes and change their behavior. As pioneers of this particular program, NYSP is believed to be one of the best and most comprehensive courses available in the State of New York.
