A statewide program has launched that will provide discounts on prescription drugs.

Residents of Illinois are now able to go online and sign up to get a free card, which will save an average of 30 percent on prescriptions.

Those unable to sign up for a card online can visit any CVS/pharmacy or Dominick's location to obtain a member card.

There are no restrictions to membership and no applications to fill out.

The Illinois Rx Card will be accepted at more than 56,000 pharmacies across the country including all major chains.
