Free Discount Card for Disabled Residents of Ohio- Cochran Firm Reports on the Golden Buckeye Card
(EMAILWIRE.COM, February 28, 2013 ) Dothan, AL The Golden Buckeye card provides for discounts from thousands of merchants and service companies in Ohio. Although the card is provided automatically to residents after their sixtieth birthday, it is also available for disabled residents over the age of 18.
The Golden Buckeye program allows for residents who have been declared to have a disability as defined by the Social Security Administration to be eligible to receive a free card. Eligible residents must apply in person at participating public libraries and senior centers. Online or phone applications are not allowed due to ID, age and disability verification requirements.
Merchants who voluntarily participate in this program provide discounts to card holders. These merchants are not reimbursed by the State of Ohio and have provided an estimated $2 billion in savings for Ohio residents since 1976. Most participating merchants will advertise their acceptance of the card, or one can search for a provider online at http://aging.ohio.gov/goldenbuckeye.
In addition to savings from merchants, the card also provides prescription drug discounts through Ohios Best Rx program (which, incidentally, is also available to all Ohio residents without restriction). The discount drug program is accepted at over 60,000 pharmacies nationwide and Ohio residents may be eligible for even greater discounts based on age or income status.
There are over 16,000 merchants and service providers who either offer a discount on their products or services or may offer special deals. There is no fee to join as a merchant and the amount or type of offer is decided by the discount provider. The Golden Buckeye Program is always looking for additional merchants.
More information about the Golden Buckeye Program can be found at http://aging.ohio.gov/goldenbuckeye/.
