Oklahoma Drug Card

A big round of thanks to the Oklahoma Municipal League and their member cities and towns.  When we started the partnership of the Oklahoma Drug Card Program and the Oklahoma Municipal League a few short years ago, the program had saved Oklahoma residents over $12 million.  With the participation of the Oklahoma Municipal League, the Oklahoma Drug Card Program has now saved Oklahoma residents MORE than $52 million!


About Oklahoma Drug Card: The Oklahoma Drug Card was launched to help the uninsured and the underinsured citizens of Oklahoma afford their prescription medications.  People who do have prescription coverage may use this program for non-formulary or non-covered drugs.  The program may also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits.  Medicare patients find the Oklahoma Drug Card beneficial when they enter the “donut hole” on prescription benefits.


The Oklahoma Drug Card is being funded through the participation of pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies. The program has received support from both the public and private sectors. To date the Oklahoma Drug Card has saved Oklahoma residents over $52 million since 2007. The Oklahoma Municipal League and its member cities and towns are working with the program to create awareness.  When citizens use the Oklahoma Drug Card not only do they save money on their prescription drugs, but they insure that money is spent in the local economy.

Utility Service Partners, Inc.

Many homeowners do not know that repair of service lines is their responsibility and not covered by homeowners insurance. The National League of Cities Service Line Warranty Program partners with more than 400 cities to educate homeowners and offer affordable protection for repairing leaks, breaks and clogs in water and sewer lines. 7 Oklahoma cities, including the City of Tulsa, have chosen to partner with the NLC Service Line Warranty Program. Over 19,000 Oklahoma homeowners are currently enrolled in the program and Oklahoma residents have saved $1.8 million over the last three years.


The NLC Service Line Warranty Program for Oklahoma offers communities:

  1. The program educates homeowners about their service line responsibilities.
  2. The program offers important financial protection – studies show most homeowners have not set aside funds for unexpected line repairs.
  3. The program is offered at no cost to the cities, who often receive a share of the revenue collected.
  4. It is the only warranty program to market to residents only with the city’s permission.
  5. It is the only warranty program endorsed by the National League of Cities.


The NLC Service Line Warranty Program partners with more than 400 cities and serves over 400,000 customers in North America. The program has saved homeowners in excess of $85 million in service line repairs.


To learn more about this unique program and how it can bring revenue and peace of mind to your community, please contact Ashley Shiwarski at ashiwarski@utilitysp.net or 724-749-1097 for more information.
