In May, people who used Brazos County's discount card saved a combined total of $32,464.41. That's more than any other county in the state.

The card is free and keeps no records of prescriptions.

"Even if you have insurance, if your prescription is not covered, then you can use this card and it can cover you at least 20 percent savings," said Brazos County District Clerk Marc Hamlin.

The card can also be used to get cheaper pet medication.

Pharmaceutical companies provide the discount, so counties don't foot the bill for the savings.

If you'd like to get one, just call 1-877-321-2652.
