HAMPTON ROADS, VA – The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce has launched an exciting and free community outreach program to help its members and others in the community save 10-85% on prescription drugs. The ChamberRx prescription drug card is a proven program that has the support of a top 10 pharmacy benefits manager and a network of more than 58,000 pharmacies nationwide.
“Rising healthcare costs are of vital concern to our member businesses,” said Jack Hornbeck, President & CEO of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce. “We are pleased to offer a program that lowers prescription drug costs. The reach of the ChamberRx card is such that it benefits employees of our members as well as the citizens of our entire region.”
There is no cost to sign up. There are no health restrictions, no obligations, and no limits on prescriptions. A limited number of free cards are now available at the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce at 500 East Main St., Suite 700, Norfolk, or a print-ready page is available for download at www.ChamberRx.com. Cards are available in both English and Spanish versions.
The process for obtaining discounted prescriptions with the ChamberRx card is easy. Cardholders simply print their name on the card and present it along with their prescription at a participating pharmacy. It can be used by family and friends, and there is no limit on the number of prescriptions. If you have insurance, present your insurance card and the ChamberRx card and use whichever provides a better discount. For individuals without insurance, this will provide much needed savings on prescriptions. This is a discount program, it is not insurance.
Hampton Roads Chamber member Cindy Hagemann, Marketing Director for Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer, P.C., said, “I used the prescription drug discount card and saved $20 on my $98 prescription that is not covered by my insurance company. That was $20 that I would not have saved if it were not for the ChamberRx card!”

ChamberRx is not insurance; it is a discount program that helps members save on prescriptions available through providers in our pharmacy networks. Everyone is accepted, regardless of current health conditions or age, and the card can be used by the entire family.
