Governor Doyle announced this week a new plan to help those without access to affordable prescription drugs.

Starting Thursday, people can enroll in the state prescription drug purchasing pool called BadgerRx.

For a fee of twenty five dollars for individuals and seventy five dollars for families, people will get the BadgerRx Gold card.

The card should help cut prescription costs for those who don't have health insurance, those who don't have a prescription drug benefit covering their medications and those with high co-payments.

To enroll in the program, go to www.badgerrxgold.com or call toll free
1-866-809-9382.
