Mercer County will unveil a new Wellness Discount and New Jersey Drug Card program on Thursday, August 12 at 10:30 a.m. at the Hamilton Township Senior Center. Whether or not they already have health insurance, any county resident may obtain a free card that can be used for discounts on a variety of medical products and services, offering savings of 10 to 50 percent on eye care, hearing aids, prescription drugs and other items. The program is not medical insurance, but offers discounts for services or medications that may not be covered under a person’s regular insurance or Medicare. There are no restrictions, no income requirements, no age limit and no applications to fill out.

Several New Jersey residents — including Ron Gonzalez of North Brunswick, Lorin Maurer of Princeton, and Coleman Mellett of East Brunswick — were victims of the crash.
